magsinva (1076) - Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Tap at the DC location - pours a dark brown with 2 fingers of white foam. Not getting much aroma, coffee and caramel, I’m getting hints of charcoal, which means its on the fine line of burnt. Taste is a little sweet a little bitter, and then it disappears. Its ok.

sonnycheeba (4870) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Tap. Pours murky dark brown with thin, fizzy beige head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is faint with light roast and caramel malts, earthy hops, figs, and light coffee. Flavor is roast malt forward with some supporting hops and dark fruit esters; dry finish with a hint of roasted coffee. Light body and low carbonation.

BeerViking (3909) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2013
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.

DSG (11246) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[2/20/15] Draught at Gordon Biersch Mission Valley in San Diego. Dark brown. Aroma of roast, coffee, caramel and some diacetyl. Sweetish flavor with roast, a faint buttery note, a nutty note and a drier finish with a coffee hint. Light to medium-bodied, kinda over-carbonated. Easy-drinking.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - OCT 12, 2005
Watery ebony body, whitish head. Smell is roasted malts, caramel and slight chocolate. Taste is sweet with caramel and chocolate, aftertaste is roasted coffee hops. Not a bad schwarzbier, a little thin for my liking though and lacking complexity. Simple Macrobrew. Sampled at Godon Biersch, Tysons Corner, VA.

after4ever (7400) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Draft at the San Jose brewery. This one has a little color--medium amber and even a hint of tan in the head. There’s roast/toast in the nose (though not much), and some in the finish, too. Not overly gifted with body or carb, and not super-flavorful, but at least you could tell it from their pilsner in a blind tasting.

nick76 (4368) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2007
The aroma has caramel, and some nuttiness. The appearance is medium brown like a brown ale. The flavor is sweet and quite tasty with plenty of caramel. The palate is thin but smooth. A good tasting beer but not a typical Schwarzbier.
