3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2012 This beer pours as a deep brown, opaque liquid with a frothy tan head that subsided quickly. The aroma is a roasted coffee, with burnt caramel and overall a bit like molasses. The taste is quite sour with a little bit of saltiness. This is a medium bodied beer with a light palate and a gentle fizziness and a burnt after-taste. Overall this is a great Schwarz beer with that great burnt flavour but seems a bit watered down. It is readily available and a pretty good offering for something you donít have to go far too find.

Pours dark chestnut coffee with a decent creamy tan head. The aroma brings some bread and sweet malt flavors. The flavor is a bit bland bringing some lightly toasted sweet malts.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate and caramel undertones, almost suggestive of coffee and cake. Dark, opaque body with a thick lacy head. Earthy , bitter, taste. Evocative of molasses. Lingering. Overall a thin body, not with the richness and fat, oily finish inherent in a stout. Not a bad drop overall

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a decent sized khaki head that leaves some lacing. Aromas and flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, ash and roasted caramel. Body is too thin and watery with a slightly creamy finish. Overall a pretty standard Schwarzbier; nothing special but it gets the job done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle by AUG 12. Nose a little plummy, oily dark malt. Dark ruby body thatís closer to black, with a short tan head. Taste lightly sweet with low bitterness, strikes a nice crisp-creamy balance and presents a good deal of roast; some ash, some nice burned notes, no real fruit. Aftertaste nice and toasty. Inky medium body.
