UPDATED: JAN 30, 2005 Tap at Union Square location. My favorite of the ones I’ve tasted at Heartland. Toasted chocolate taste, dark but not very complex. Pretty straight forward lager. Smooth and refreshing.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2011 On tap in USA. Black color, little head. Malty aroma. Malty mess. Palate is malty and coco. This is the typical Ice Cream flavored brewery stuff. Not good at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap: pours dark red/brown. Arouma of chocolate and prunes. Disappointingly thin mouthfeel. Nice chocolate and caramel malts. Finishes with an alcohol and bitter kick.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sweet molasses nose, ruby-black colour with tan head. Flavour is a mix of molasses, coffee and some malt sweetness. The palate on this is quite full and the finish is a long mix of the molasses and bitterness. Well made beer

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
pint on tap at the Radio City location. Mildly opaque dark brown appearance, tan head. Aroma was light and of coffee and chocolate. Taste was kind of flat but noticed more chocolate above anything else. Minimal hop character. Palate was very average- not disappointing but not a very full body and tasted kind of watered down. Overall decent brew and an average schwarzbier.
