blatantdream (78) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2005
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.

Theydon_Bois (8333) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Tap at Heartland, Union Square, 24/11/13. Dark mahogony brown with a good sized light beige head. Nose is cardboard, light toffee, fruity notes, toasted malt. Taste comprises toffee, light cocoa, straw, berry fruit light. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finale - crisp and clean. Ok - a little overly sweet though.

Bierkrug (2133) - - DEC 4, 2009
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.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Draft at the midtown location. Dark brown with a beige head. Lightly sweet aroma with some roasty notes. The flavor is roasty as well, with a light caramel sweetness. Pretty good.

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2009
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.

Dredd (687) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2009
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

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2008
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.

The aroma is malty mainly sweet some chocolate The appearance is an attractive brown black tan head The flavor is sweet malty chocolate mocha The beer had just enough hops to make a clean bitter finish on the palate Good schwarzbier overall
