A bit of a musty chocolate smell to this one. Appearance is almost black, with no head at all! There is a slight roastiness to the mouthfeel but not a great deal of depth. Not a bad beer though.

Deep dark malts, bit of chocolate and a touch of dry hoppiness. Super dark with a head that laces. bit of sweet then coffee flavour. Rather nice beer. I think I'd enjoy drinking this of a friday evening after work.

The aroma is sweet caramelic with notes of roasted bread. The color is dark brown and it has a small disappearing head. The flavor is of caramel, roasted malt, and a light maltyness, before it ends on an OK bitterness. The body is thin. A boring schwarzbier.

Nice beer! It's a little too watery but then on the other hand, possesses a mild chocolate flavour which is quite pleasant. Nothing much, as far as I can tell, aroma-wise; besides a little more suble chocolate and water. It's appearance is that of a mild Cola with a nice slightly brownish-white head which lasts only approx. 20 seconds. Anyway, after a few attempts at enjoying this brew, I've decided that it's actually quite good.

Flat looking black beer with a good coffee aroma, but a fairly weak malty flavour. Overall a plain dark beer.

alot like carbine stout, lots of chocolate/espresso coffee flavours from the roasted malts, rather tasty and easy to drink

Choos (698) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2003
Aroma was slightly metallic with more than a hint of malt. Roasty flavours with a bit of dark chocolate, mildy sweet but no hop flavours noticable. Bit thin in the mouthfeel but that could be the carbonation.

Yes very impressive, strong malty sweet flavour but light and smooth on a delicate, lingering palate. I am impressed by the way beer is made. This is a very good effort.
