3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz can from "Lifesource",Salem Oregon
Pours a very very dark mahogany,almost black with a nice frothy tan head.
Very deep toasted,roasted malt aromas..like dark french coffee with a touch of heavy cream. Nice.
Taste is bitter salty dark chocolate and treacle. Some ashy aspects to the flavour also but its nice,finished dark coffee no sugar!
Nice dry palate..goes well with the style.
Good different beer they call it a Stout lager but i think its a schwarzbier.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours two fingers of tan head on a black body. Looks great.
The aroma is chocolate, a little burnt malt and ripe fruit.
The taste loaded with burnt and roasted malt. The bitterness right in perfectly. The finish has the slightest sweetness.
Medium body with some fizz but moderate carbonation overall.

It’s actually a combination between a German Schwarzbier and an American Stout. Super tasty, good alcohol content.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can:   Roasty like a porter, a bit smoother, nice mouthfeel, almost silky.   Lots of black malt.   Very dark in color, nice head and lacing.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Not a big fan of Schwarzbiers, but this one was better than many others.   Clean finish, roasted and black malts linger.   So many in the style are too thin, but this one is actually chewy, which I like.

Dark black in color, clear with a thin head. Nice Dark malt flavors seems a tad light but this must be the lager getting through. Avery unique beer indeed.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is really light, actually, which disappointed me a bit. I just get a hint of some toasting in there. Taste has some bitterness, but not too much else. Meh.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Fremont Ridge in Portland, OR. Colour...schwarz! With a thick tan head. Nose...roasted nuts, cola and vanillin. Palate...very frothy up front with more of the cola-like aspect and a bitter nuts. The back of the palate is tangy and semi sweet with dry hints along the way. Fremont Ridge listed this as a stout, but it’s definitely a schwarz bier!
