Black color with little or no head. The taste is sweet light roasted malts. Pretty much a standard schwarzbier.

Bottle. Black with fast disappearing head. Sweet, liqourice, raisins, wine. Low carbonation. Half a litre is more than enough.

Quite powerful schwarzbier. I like this one. It is a good idea to put some extra alcohol in the schwarzbier style.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very malty nose. Dark brown almost black, dark tan head. Roasty flavor, clean, but a little weak.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark black with hints of red, a thin tan head and nicce lacing. Great aroma - chocolate, malt, roast, freshness. Palate starts out very vinous with sweet plum notes then becomes chocolate cherry coffee and burning roastyness and hoppy bitterness. Finish is long and sweeter. This seems to be much stronger than it tastes. Very surprising!

Oh wow... my friend and I thought this was just going to be a cheap filler beer in the night. How wrong we were! Pitch black pour with a thin, lacing head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and smoke. Taste is very bitterly chocolate. Quite a nice surprise!

This is the only beer from this brewer that I’ve had that is worth drinking. Smells and tastes of chocolate and coffee. Nice blend within a fairly rich malt body. A quick but dry coffee finish, some licorice. The extra alcohol isn’t in the foreground but sets this apart from typical Schwarzbiers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle: wonderful opaque black ruby body with a dark tan cream…large toasted rye aroma, with wisps of coffee, and lightly burnt hops. Roasted peanut flavours, mix with a distinct herbal quality to offer a unique porter taste. Slightly gritty palate, but smoothes out in the finish…decent, but I really wanted some more fruitiness instead of the sugary sweetness.
