Yummy,yummy,yummy. A nice dark beer with outstanding flavor with a touch of carmel and coffee. I ended up with a pint cause i couldnít get pitchers

A fantastic beer! Pitch black w/ no head, and had a smokey tasty coffee flavor w/ hints of caramel. Very satisfying. One of the better John Harvards beers.

This is almost a stout. I agree that this is one of Harvardís best. Also: they called this Black Widow Lager in my local Harvardís.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2003 Springfield, PA. Opaque black and cleary very heavily hopped. Dry, crisp and clean: a good beer to drink. Lacked the interesting nuances of other schwarzbiers that I've had, but otherwise one of the best out of John Harvard's.
