Draft at brewpub. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Flavor of chocolate powder, nuts, caramel, and perhaps a tad amount of tobacco. Just enough bitterness to keep it in balance. Smooth finish. Not bad. Solid

aroma of light roast. flavor of cola and iced coffee. some sweetness but not overpowering. soft mouthfeel with some sizzle from hops. very controlled sweetness for the style makes this a winner.

Growler. Poured a clear dark brown color with dark orange highlights. The head was tan. Smelled of unsweetened chocolate brownie with hay and nut accents. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet. I tasted hints of molasses, caramel apple, grass, and lightly roasted nuts. It’s a Schwarzbier,

A clear copper ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, a nice caramel malt, light molasses note. In mouth, a rather light schwarzbier, with light sweet caramel, very thin. So-so. On tap at brewpub, May 18 2009.

(10/10/08) Draught at the brewpub in Chicago. Dark brown with no head. Malty aroma with some diacetyl and some caramel. Sweet and malty flavor with some butterscotch, toasted notes and some caramel. Some metallic hints in the finish. Medium-bodied. Not great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rootbeer-looking in color, clarity and head. Ceral lager aroma. Deep, dark grainy malt flavors - sweetish - without much roast. A little chemical on the backend.

Pint mug @ piece, poured a murky dark brown with creamy head which lasted a while, probably a bad pour by the server. Aroma of roasted malts, barley and caramel. Carbonation is light almost too light. The rosted malts are the majority of the taste here, finishes smooth and refreshing with a caramel chocolate taste. An alright beer, pretty average overall, have had beer brews from piece.

Nothing too exciting here, im not even sure if its better than your basic lager. Its smooth and stuff, but its just boring. Not as big and burth as some others like it, this is way more drinkable. Nice to try, but not something I will come back for. Also I am not a fan of that mug it gets served in, I dont care if its correct glassware or not.
