Pour on tap, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, caramel, some slight astringent malts into a bit of cocoa powder, some slight toasted bread. Taste was a mix of toast, roast, cocoa, some slight acidic malt into a bit of caramel, finishing with some spice, slightly bitter.

tectactoe (2979) - Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 Tap: Jet black with a toasted brown layer of foam that sits across the top. Aroma of burnt toast, mild char, & dark malt. Kind of vague. Lots of burnt toast, though. Heavy handed with maybe just a hint of very dry cacao dust. Flavor has a lot of lager yeast qualities to it. Again, more of that charred toast with heavy dark malts, dry cocoa powder, & some burnt grains. Pretty clean finish, relatively dry, Easy drinking, light bodied.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Sampled at the brewery. Nutty roasted malt with char and coffee notes. Dark black with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with high carbonation. Starts dry with a bit of carbonic acidity, char, and roasted barley. Good hop finish with clean, slightly nutty after.

BLADT (674) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Tap. Almost black. White head. Small amounts of webbing. Mild nose of barely and wet cement. Taste opens up. Light body. Semi bitter. Good grain showing. Lager hops support nicely in the background.

wmubronco1992 (660) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Mild bready aroma. Some roast in the flavor. Nothing overwhelming about this at all, but it was very drinkable and in this age of high octane brews its nice to have an occasional easy drinker. Palate was clean.

Malt and coffee aroma, a great coffee and chocolate taste, smooth without sacrificing feel... not bad!

jtw (1137) - farmington, Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2013
On draft, a neat surprise to find at my local bowling alley. Dark and full with a whitish head, and a sweet mocha nose. Classic schwarz character, clean and well executed, and at a decent enough price I won’t mind enjoying a few more.

Pailhead (5397) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of chocolate and light roasted nuts, and some faint black licorice. It pours a dark black with some faint orange highlights MD a small beige head. The flavor starts with chocolate and a hint of caramel. The finish has roasted nuts and faint black licorice. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Tmoney99 (11611) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Tap sample at MBGSF 2013. Poured clear black color with medium tan creamy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium toasted malt and coffee aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium flavor of toasted sweet malt with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting solid brew.
