Not really much there. An initial rusty taste, sort of a beer that was not sure what it was supposed to be. Ok a lager I guess with just a tad of roast and very little smoke. a confused beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a near black with white carbonation. Aroma of coffee and roasted malt. Taste is the base of a pilsner with an added coffee/roasted malt flavor. Interesting. Not what I would have done to a pils, but different.

Bottle. At OBX. Dark brown color. Lots of roasted malt aroma, cocoa, cofee, caramel, nuts. Medium light sweetness. Light bitter. Medium body. Ave carbonation. Taste about the same as aroma. Creamier texture. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ 18th RG. Prey dark with thin head. Smells like a cross between pilsener and stale coffee. Light toastiness in the flavor. Kind of grainy.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dissapointing. Beautiful black pour with a rich brown head. Bitter for bitters sake. I will not be buying this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a very dark yet clear brown color with a medium sized off-white head that faded quickly. Not too much in the aroma but some chocolate and caramel. Some toffee as well. Some yeast and skunk too. Taste has an interesting combination of flavors. A good amount of cheesy notes with some egg and grains. Chocolate and hay towards the finish. Quite drinkable.

A nice schwarzbier. Nothing too great, but certainly enjoyable. And worth your time if you run across it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black with a decent brown head. Aroma is slight roasted malt, mildly burnt. Flavor is burnt coffee with a light finish. Really tastes like it’s trying to be a porter instead of a pilsner, not as good as other black lagers I’ve had. A little more body and it could have been a well rounded porter. As it is, slightly over burnt for a black lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild malt aroma and a mild malt flavor. Not a bad flavor, just not much going on with this beer.
