Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 8, 2009
.5 liter bottle at spuyten. Pours a nice deep dark amber-coppery brown with a nice lasting head. Aroma is a sharp toasty almost roasted malt character, nutty and chocolate- very clean sliight yeast, and no diacetyl like the previous beer. Rich toasty, dark munich and slight chocolate malt flavor, a drying toastiness, nutty all the way through and a crisp clean finish. Great Schwarz.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle at Novare Res. Pours a dark reddish brown with a foamy brown head. Sweet, malty flavors. Almost root beery. I liked this one, the smooth body makes it pretty nice too.

0.5L bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Deep brown, ruby-tinted beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly malty and cocoaish with a soft toasted malt character. Chewy and sweet but with a light chocolatey character. Deeply cocoaish flavour over a soft but well-lagered clean sweetness. Lots of munich character through the middle. Really nice beer.
