Bottle. Pours black with light tan head. Smell is light roast, sweet grain. Taste is more of the same with a tinge of mineral on the end. Very weak on developing any real flavor. Oh well.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz can. Dark ruby black with tan head. Aroma of roast/toast and wet sneakers. Light body, not to bad at first- roasted barley, toasted nuts. As it warms up and you trudge through it ounce by ounce it becomes less and less drinkable. It's not horrendous, but most schwartzbiers I've had have been better. Finish is light roast.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tasted on 11/21/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at the grocery store in a mixed sixer. Pours nearly black dark brown with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is malty dark bread with a bit of a marshmallow note. The flavor is about the same with just a touch of bitter char. The body is light with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short malty dark bread finish.

I absolutely LOVE this beer! Great Guinness taste. Just discovered it and can’t believe I am so late in trying it. Great beer!

Loin derrière la classique Guiness en cannette, cette "black lager" est un peu anonyme. D’un sombre surmonté d’un col quasi inexistant, cette bière quand même sympa a quelques discrètes notes de café et de malt brûlé avec une finale minimement amère et sucrée.

Bottle Oct 2014. Absolutely foul. Tried this a few years ago, and hated it. Nothing's changed. The burnt taste actually turns my stomach. Only beer on the planet that I'd rather pour out than drink.

11.2 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: half finger light khaki head, black color, opaque, good lacing. Aroma: earthy molasses, light licorice, light roasted grain. Palate: full body, soft carbonation, light bitter and dry finish, oily texture. Taste: sweet malt into a light roasted grain astringency, aftertaste is light licorice that lasts. Overall, surprisingly good, nothing amazing or standout about this beer, but smooth tastes and palate.

Plain dark lager with a slight roasted malt flavor. Very clean finish. A simple lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark, semi-opaque body with ample bubbly tan head. Aromas of grass, corn, roasted barley (in that order). Flavour is weak compared to its stoutly homologue but still bears some likeness. Weak, dilute MF. I’d rename this "Budweiser, Dark Roast".

"light but pleasant aroma and flavor of roasted malts, caramel and/or mollasses. refreshing dark beer...nicely done. i was not a fan of Guinness til the foreighn extra got there (that beer is awesome) but this one is quite pleasant even though light. nothing that’ll blow you away, but quite nice all-around."
