3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours the deepest mahogany into the glass, with an eggshell soapy head that leaves foamy lacing. The nose is of grains and silage. Flavors of light coffee essence, nice chocolate hues and grains finish with a lightly toasted element. Very sessionable, it’s a sweeter Schwarz, but goes down extremely easy. The body is light and the palate malty, round and substantive. Very decent, in my humble opinion.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out to a generous beige head that laces well and very deep brownish black color. Aroma is slightly nutty, coffee-like malt with a good dose of Munich and pilsner malts, much like a Dunkel. Flavor is a blend of sharp roasted grains, sweet decocted malts and a touch of noble hops. Mouthfeel is medium-light and refreshing. Overall a good call.

Pours a dark amber color with an of white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Thin mouthfeel notes of caramel and chocolate, with a malty aftertaste. Not bad for a "novelty" beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
"Light toffee, roasted coffee, and even lighter chocolate on the nose and flavor. Mildly bitter, perhaps a touch to sweet and not quite as dry as I like in the style. Not bad, but nuthin special either."

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown - almost black color with red-orange highlights and a medium sized fluffy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was cola, a bit of cherry, wood and smoke. The flavor was cola, wood, a hint of roasty malts and a faint cherry undertone. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.
