2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet molasses aroma. Tan two finger head recedes steadily with some lacing. Dark brown with ruby tone not quite opaque. Some roasted malts apparent but generally plain flavour. Very thin body. Can.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown colour with a nice cappuccino head that leaves some nice lacing behind. Mild roasty aroma with a hint of chocolate. Very light bodied with smooth malt flavours and a metallic edge (likely from the can). Not bad, but really needs more heft in the body.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours dark brown body with a very large head that fades to a big head! Bit roasty, some dry bitterness. Was expecting more from this. Would have preferred a heavier body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Faint bready aroma. Rapidly faded head over dark brown body. Some bready flavors, but tinged with a bit of an acidic bite that was somehow out of place. The beer was similar to the Leikeim, but tasted through a veil.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 22, 2006 A humid, tinny aroma is thankfully overcome by dry roastiness and pumpernickel bread...Berries and ashes, surprised by a furtive lactic passage, characterize its light but pleasant body...A healthy metabolism led by a stagnant craftsmanship...

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark brown, some red shine and a tannish head. The nose is fresh with fruit and a light touch of smoke. Good malt in the nose too, dark fruit, brown sugar - lightly sweet. The body showcases a fine maltiness but is rather spritzy. Saving it a bit is the touch of smoke. Not a bad schwarzbier, there are better though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2004 Dark, rich color but not to heavy on the tounge. Very smoky,woody, chocolate flavor. Very different for those looking for a different style to sample. The little market up the street from me sells this in a mini keg for $14.
