I donít usually go for the black beers but I liked this one. I thought the head retention was adequate and the maltiness of the aroma was enticing. The body isnít too heavy. The palate is very creamy and pleasantly bitter.

Draft to taster at the Atlanta brewpub. Looks solid; a transparent brown with foamy off-white head. Smells malty with notes of dough and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled on draft at the Virginia Beach brewpub this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and a small tan head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was faint but dryish with a hint of roasty malts. The flavor was dry, malty, roasty and woody. Medium length dry, roasty and woody finish. Medium body. Meh.

Tap at GB in Broomfield, a pretty average Schwartz, dark brown with a fine head, touches of coffee on the nose, a little more coffee plus red fruit on the palate, and maybe just a touch of liquorice.

Draft. Pours clear dark ruby brown with a thin white head and decent lacing. Tastes like watery coffee with light bitterness. Light body and medium carbonation. Not much aroma- faint and bitter coffee, possibly chocolate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

No aroma. Dark brown with a thin tan head, no lacing. Tasted stale and metallic. Body is thin and watery. This was a poor sample, barely drinkable.
