Bottle. Pours dark, dark brown with a medium light tan head that leaves a ring of lacing. Aromas of mild chocolate, some caramel, cereal, and those little marshmallows from Lucky Charms. Very mild flavor, basically like subdued Guinness; light cocoa, some lactose, and roasty malt. Average.

What is "cold brewed", anyway? I have to hand it go Guinness, they managed to brew a beautiful black beer that tastes like Budweiser. Honestly, why? Could have had a lot more character. I wouldnít call this a Schwarzbeer. I would call it a "Black American Lager", if that was a category. If I drank this blindfolded, I would have no clue that it was black. Really just tastes like Budweiser. What more is there to say?

Bottle at Fox and Parrot. This is kind of disappointing, really. I was just expecting just a Guinness clone. But this is like Guinness light with some vegetal lager flavors. It lacks the roast of a good schwarzbier or Guinness stout. Meh.

Malty, dunkel aroma, with some cocoa and toast. Distinctive label, very dark black-brown beer, thin ivory head. Pleasant, toast-and-roast flavor, dry, not very bitter - a good session brew. Medium to slightly-light body, slightly watery. Mild roast finish. Publix, Bradfordville.

Bottle. Not as good as I thought it would be. Tastes more like a average lager than a schwarzbier. Started off good. Nice dark color, nice head. Aroma, smells kind of like metal. Taste, just not that great.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours deep brown/black with a large foamy tan head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma is very faint but has a bit of roastiness and a bit of coffee. Flavor is slightly better...a bit roasty, some spicy hops, and a bit of a metallic note. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a mildly roasted, mildly dry finish. Largely unimpressive.

Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle. Very dark brown pour, light, but persistent khaki colored head - a bit of trailing lacing. Aroma is somewhat neutral, a hint of fresh lake water, very brief chocolate. Flavor has some hints of dark chocolate, a bit of day old coffee, wisps of licorice. Medium thick mouthfeel - par for the style. Decent schwarzbier.
