Dickinsonbeer (5074) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
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.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Vegetal and very malty with a touch of roast in the nose. The pour is mostly black with loose brown highlights and a fair bit of filtering. No bottle conditioning. Sweet, lactose flavor with some sugary malts, cocoa, and a bitter roast finish. Solid.

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.

Bottle at brewery. Dark brown, almost black with red tint and foamy off-white head. Nice looking brew. clean with asphalt, husk, and dark malt. Quaffable beer with low carbonation. Nice sweet malty flavors and licorice permeat, then finish also with anise and asphalt and is not a toasty example. Really good.
