SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 26, 2007
On tap at the 21st Amendment brewpub as a guest beer. Seems that 21st is carrying a lot more guest beers these days due to the overextended demands of canning their own beer and trying to serve tap beer to a thirsty public at the pub. This beer pours dark brown with a big beige head. The finish is tart sourness. Has a strong chocolate aroma. Great lacing left behind in the glass. The finish is very drying and chalky. Again, a WAY overrated beer by some.

LOL - Nice when my notes say Death in Texas - hehehe. Nice black color, tan head. Nice roasted malt nose - medium long lasting. I would say this is not a Schwarzbier. It is a unique creation - and that is truly tasteable.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - APR 22, 2007
On tap @ the Linkery. Dark color, aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is strong on the coffee with a sour, almost bitter finish. A little watery - almost like a foreign stout. Pretty good as a session beer, but nothing about this beer grabs my attention.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 6, 2007
(On tap - Toronado) Completely opaque black with a dense and creamy, beige head leaving laces. Lightly burned, licorice-like aroma. Medium body with roasted - lightly burned - malt, again with some licorice. Very bitter finish. Excellent. 250307

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Had on tap at Hydro in Calistoga. Very dark colored, very light-bodied, VERY FLAVORFUL. Most schwarz’s I’ve had previously fell short in the flavor category, but not this one. It had as much flavor as a dark and robust porter. Actually, that’s exactly what it tasted like. Plenty of roasted/burnt malt flavors and aromas dominate the profile of this bad boy. Nice.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Pours with a dark brown body topped by a thin head and little lacing. It’s bitter and roasty with a slight malt character and a little sourness. Light to medium bodied and a touch dry.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Tap @ O’Brien’s. Very dark upon pouring. Very sweet roasty aroma with alot of chocolate. Roasted coffee and sweet chocolate dominate flavors. Very full for the low abv.
