2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: Pours a dark brown, near black body with a Whopper-interior, sudsy head.
Smell: Modest accounts of chalkiness and roast, with increasingly lighter notes of chocolate, yeast, and herb.
Taste: Lightly ashen, chalky roastiness. Slight sweetness. The merest hint of chocolate. Quick herbal hops, lightly bitter. Thins out tremendously, both in body and flavor, approaching the finish, making for a very bland end to the beer.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.
Overall: The two previous Leavenworth beers were embarrassingly dismal, so expectations were set very low. Expectations: met. I want 2013 to be the year Leavenworth Beers gets something right. C’mon, guys. 354 days to go. You GOT THIS!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black pour, sort of stout like, with a light tan, thin disappearing head, with good lacing. Aroma is oddly spice-like and slightly roast. Flavor resembles the aroma with the primary flavor being mild roasted malt. Mouthfeel is thin, complexity is low. Finish is thin, and uninteresting. I wasn’t really expecting much from this beer, and it met my low expectations.

22. Pours jet black with a sudsy, creamy tan head. Light drippy lace. Big roasty nose, maybe a bit of baking chocolate. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty, toasty mid palate with dry chocolate and some ashy chalk. Dry finish. Nice beer.

Pitch black with thinnish head. Wonderful coffee-chocolate nose. Intense carafa body. Powdery coffee flavors with crisp, earthy hops. Well put together and thoroughly enjoyable stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Nearly pitch black, cola hues, moderate to large frothy sandy head, fairly nice lacing.   Very soft roasted malt nose, smidgen of lactose and sugar cubes.   Smooth on the tongue, soft roasted malts, and the aformentioned lactose and sugar cubes.   I guess that makes for a hint of cold coffee with cream.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate and very smooth.   Clean finish, and much better than the Navigator I had from them the other day.   Not a strong Scwharzbier, and many more are stronger in their roastiness and black malt profile, but this one was clean, soft, and well constructed.

Very dark pour with a creamy head. Roasted aroma and flavor make this a great dark lager. Better in front of the fire than in a lawn chair.

22 oz. from Chuck’s $3.99. Smells roasty but also a little like Dubble Bubble as well. Is that the yeast? Tastes fine I suppose but something off about it keeps it from rising above middling (kind of like most Leavenworth beers).

Bomber thanks to Brewdad. Pours a totally black color with a thick light brown/beige head. A sweet toasted malt nose with some caramel. Rich with dry fruit, some coffee and light roast, very drinkable. A bit thin perhaps, but pretty robust as well. Some metal in the finish probably from the roast or it could be hops. Very enjoyable.
