FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Bomber. Pours deep brown with some amber highlights around the edge with a small off white fluffy head. Aroma is toasted malts, a bit of cocoa, a hint of smokiness, a bit doughy with just a tiny bit of dark fruits. Flavor is sweet, lightly nutty, roasted and slightly burnt malts, chocolate and some coffee. Lightly bitter and dry finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Alright beer, nothing standing out

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Nose of coffee and roast with a hint of sweet/bitterness as well. Pours cola brown, thin ring on top. Coffee and roast, some dark fruity malts, some earthy bitterness, dry bready malts as well. Roasted malts linger, but clean out eventually due to lager status. Medium carbonation, drinkable, but stronger than most schwarz I am used to.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Bomber shared by JCB. Cheers, Jason! Pours dark brown with generous off-white head. Not a whole lot schwartz-y about the aroma on this... or the taste for that matter. More like a dark lager or maybe a porter, but not even really that roasty. Where is the smoke or char?

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours a clear but very dark reddish dark brown with a medium foamy slightly creamy beige head. Aroma is fruity, lager yeast, some cookie dough, light roast, hint of hops, smells somewhat English. Flavor follows, off-dry, weird mix of cookie dough, fruity sweetness, bit of ashy roast, quicker finish leaving some ashiness behind with a vacant aftertaste. Doesn’t seem like 7%. Actually, as I drink the alcohol numbs the flavors a bit. Medium bodied, glassy, larger carbonation, thin feeling.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a tan head and a slightly hazed brown body. Aroma is chocolate, nutty, watery and lightly fruit. Taste is nutty, ash, water, melon and tobacco. Fizzy.
