bottled. Great looking brown ale w/ red highlights. Mild aroma w/ an amazing tongue tingle of lightly roasted malts and hops too. Good just watery.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml. bottle. I was inspired to try this one after many years due to a thread on this site. Nice! It pours a dark brown/black color with a light tan head. The aroma is toasty and crisp with light notes of cocoa and caramel. The body and flavor left something to be desired. Not as good as I remember it being. Kind of watery with some sweet toffee, seltzer, minor roasted malt and some bread. Pretty lackluster. Not a bad beer, just not a great beer to promote the style anymore.

Roasted malts on the nose. Light notes of dark chocolate. Bitter and dry on the finish. Pretty boring actually.

Roasty aroma. Big roast taste. Mineral water? Tastes so pristine. My second schwarzbier, and I’m finding I REALLY like this style for some reason. As good as the Schlafly one I raved about, if not better.

Malty chocolate and coffee taste with a slight bitterness. Crisp. Light on the palate. A little dry.
I loved it!

Bottle. Dark color, tiny white head. Faint aroma of coffee, chocolate and toffee. Taste is coffee and chocolate malt, quite faint. Short finish. This beer is not bad, but really need more punch.

Draft at The Bier Garden. Suprisingly light "dark" beer. Some mocha, caramel notes but mainly a similar Irish stout/Guiness mouthfeel. Solid.

Very dark black pour, little head, faint aroma. Some toffee, chocolate, vanilla , coffee hints, mild carbonation, smooth, little after taste. Very drinkable , better than the Guiness Black Lager I have tried.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight coffee and chocolate aroma. Pours a dark colour with little head but decent lacing. Taste is some coffee and chocolate maltyness with little hints of hops. No real aftertaste.
This is a drinkable dark lager with a good taste, just not much of it.
