Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a mug. Pours a slightly transparent dark black/brown with a thin beige head. No lace. The aroma is sweet with fresh-baked cookies, bread, toffee, sweet malts. A moderately crisp body deepens the the feel of this lager, but there’s a slickness to it on the finish that weakens it for me. The sweetness carries over as this beer is like fresh warm bread with sugar on top. Light chocolate malt notes round out, and there’s just a kiss of alcohol on the finish. This is an easy drinker, though a bit middle-of-the-road, that I would like to have on hand time and again.

asheft (2925) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2016
Bottle in La Crosse, WI. Slightly toasty aroma with faint hazelnut and red fruit. Clear, dark mahogany under a thin, off-white collar and patch. Sweet, buttery nutty flavor that quickly dries out with a slight carbonic bite. Flavorful yet delicate and well balanced. Medium light body, medium carbonation, crisp.

chucklemation (1399) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, some roast, and earthy hops. Flavor has a metallic tinge to it, with toffee and caramel dominant, along with some earthy hops. Has a very low bitterness and a thin body. Decent.

chinchill (4202) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2016
12 oz bottle poured in pint glass. (from notes) A - fine looking, mahogany color; clear. Nice off-white head but too short lived. S - like the taste, main aroma is toasted malts T - no flaws, yet not an exceptional brew worthy of strong recommendation. Minimal hop presence. malty aftertaste. M - smooth and, as advertised, a bit creamy.

lbianchi66 (309) - FRANCE - DEC 18, 2015
Robe brune avec une mousse qui tient moyennement. Arômes café et fumé goût café et fumé. Pas d’arrière goût. Texture crémeuse. Dommage, avec un goût un peu renforcé, ça serait une bonne brune.

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Almost Black With Shades Of Red, Medium Small Head, No Lacing. Faint Toasted Malt Aroma. Taste of Toasted Malt, Vanilla, Coffee Like Bitter Finish. Vanilla Gives Creamy Feeling, Although it is Thinner Than Looks And Taste Suggest. Decent Enough To Enjoy. OK.

superspak (4569) - Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2015
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 8/17/2015. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very good schwarzbier style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, clean, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
