Draft. Deep, black cola molasses. No head. Coffee grounds, malty. Thin, black coffee flavoring with some roasted notes poking through an otherwise unimpressive offering

Nice cola black pour leads to a slightly sour roasted malt flavor. The aroma is hard to describe but it kind of smells like garbage?

Had on tap at the New Orleans location. Like its name states in German, it is a black beer. Pours dark with a nice head. My favorite of the beers at this brewpub.

this was pretty good, very black presentation, not much on top. smoky burnt toast, somewhat watery.

Tap in DC. Black pour with white head. Almost no aroma. A very watery taste complemented by a clean coffee finish

True to its name, black fading to brown near the surface. Dark and smooth, but a tad watery. Aroma nearly absent, just a hint of sweet maltiness. Smoky notes cut through the mild hop bitterness; the brew was otherwise quite dry. Enjoyable with food, though I don’t think it could have held up so well on its own.

Serving type: on-tap Appearance- Dark Brown with a nice tan head Aroma- Malt, Chocolate and Coffee T/P - – Very strong coffee flavor almost like drinking an iced cappuccino. Very nice mouths feel no strong after taste. Overall- Very drinkable, not the best dark beer they have, that would have to go to the winter bock, but defiantly worth a try and would not pass one up if it was offered to me. It is one of the better beers that the brew, just not the best one

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Good deel black to brown color contrasted well by a white fairly foamy head that then disapates. A little chocolate roasted coffe malt on the nose, a bit thin mouthfeel, satifying taste that does finish somewhat dry and crisp. Pretty good selection. Great building in DC.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Nice dark black foams up a nice head from the tap. Aroma of roasted coffee, caramel, and a touch of chocolate. A very smooth, light bodied beer that goes down very well, a bit to well for my taste. My only complaint is that the palate is a bit too light.
