COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Miner Mishap is our version of a traditional German Schwarzbier, also known as "Black Pilsner" or simply "Black Lager". Our traditional version was formulated by our friend William Scott (or Scotty as heís known around the brewery), an award-winning homebrewer and certified beer judge who has always been very generous about sharing his creations and his seemingly unlimited knowledge of beer. It seemed only fitting that since we started out as a homebrewery, we would try and recreate one of Scottyís homebrews (which are typically 5 or 10 gallon batched) here in our 15 barrel 鸑 gallon) brewhouse. Brewed almost entirely with malt imported from Weyermann Specialty Malts in Bamberg, Germany and hopped with Imported German Perle and Hallertaur Mittlefreu hops, Miner Mishap is truly a one-of-a-kind original.

Coca cola colored ---oh wait its lighter...Pepsi colored with a small tan head---not much aroma just smells cheap--smells like sour corn malts--sour too--foul bitterness under the weak and weird of this beer --Blind tasting--I am thinking its some kind of sick and twisted stout--damn it co**sucker...its a black lager---I thought it was a black lager at first...but dismissed it because black lagers are sweeter and better than this!

I am not sure how I got this beer, so forgive me. Dark brown color, tan head. Smell is chocolatey and kind of hoppy; but it has an odd smell as well. Taste is kind of watery, not very thick, pretty uneventful. Not something I would want to seek out and drink again. Maybe I got this in a trade?

A - Pours black while slightly turning very dark brown towards the top. Thin head that leaves a few wisps of off white bubbles. No lacing. S - Chocolaty malt, sugary granola/, toasted syrupy malt. T - Tangy cocoa bitterness, heavy roasted malt, smoky grain that has a a bit of a sour characteristic. Some light sweetness blends through before a roasted/slightly burnt coffee grows toward a nice and dry finish. Aftertaste is a blend of chocolate and coffee. M - Just right for the style. This is a smoky/toasty beer. Itís chocolate and coffee flavors are pronounced but not too bold. Goes down very smooth. Highly sessionable. I will definitely be picking up more of this brew.

Received in trade from a generous soul whoís name was not written down and is forever lost in my clouded mind. Thank you for the opportunity just the same. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a thinnish off white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of caramel and brown sugar with a hint of chocolates and sulfur. Faint earthy hops try to provide balance but canít muster the strength to battle the maltiness of this brew. The flavor follows the aroma with sugary malt and a hint of chocolate and some miner off flavors. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet crisp mouthfeel. Decent beer, but really nothing special. Thanks for the state tick, but not a great beer for the style.

Looks like cola. Has some cola taste, too, along with sweet chocolate and a kind of odd vegetable note.

12oz bottle 12/8/11 (Jackís Mountain Home)-44į in Lager Glass-Pours dark brown/light black with a small tan ring for a head. Aroma of burnt malt, fruits, and chocolate. Taste of malt, chocolate, caramel, and slight vanilla. This medium bodied brew is not too shabby.

A rich roasty aroma. Very strong. This is a quite roasty schwarzbier; very thick and chewy, yet it just doesnít sit quite right.

Atom (1219) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2011
12oz bottle pours dark brown/ black with huge khaki head, actually upon opening the head started overflowing, maybe slightly carbonated. Aroma is earthy roasted malts, sweet chocolate, dark fruits, and molasses. Taste similar to aroma but as expected this is way over carbonated and has an acidity present that makes me feel like drinking the whole thing would indefinitely cause heartburn, drain pour.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/15/11, as Choc Miner Mishap

Aroma: Fairly light aroma that is mostly roasty, with some earthy notes, and a touch of caramel
Appearance: It pours a hazy brownish color with a smallish brown head and decent lacing
Flavor: The taste is much sweeter than the nose, lots of caramel and chocolate malts, lighter roast
Palate: The body is light-medium, itís rather thin and quite watery on the mouth, with average carbonation
Overall Impression: I thought this one was pretty interesting. I felt this way mostly, becuase when the aroma lead me to believe that it was going to be a rather roasty and dry beer, so the flavor was completely unexpected. The sweet caramel flavor worked pretty well. I hadnít beer too impressed with many of the other beers from Choc, but I enjoyed this one.
