Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear, deeper brown colored body with a slight mahogany hue. Inch thick, dense and frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is medium sweet malts with a touch of molasses, a light roast note, some raisin bread, and a light noble hopping. Flavor is similar. A light roast throughout with a bit of an noble hop note, some lightly sweetened malts with molasses hints, roast, bread, and a touch of spice. Finishes clean and dry with a light roasty bitterness and a bit of a sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and an active carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid schwarzbier. Clean, easy drinking, and flavorful. A touch sweet at times, but nicely balanced by the roasts and light hopping. Good one.

Marheb (3284) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
(Bue sur place): Une belle robe sombre laisse passer la lumière. Chocolat noir, caramel et mélasse se mélangent et se laissent compléter par une touche herbacée, poivrée.

Ernest (6748) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2011 Rated at Klosterbrau Nov 2011. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted/burnt grain, bitter chocolate), with notes of molasses, minerals, milk, black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Odd collection of aromas, but ultimately enjoyable. Decent balance.
