3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft... DLD06... Deep, dark lager with a small, creamy, beige head. Decent retention. The aroma is roasted, smoky and chocolatey. The flavor is an almost perfectly balanced blend of dark chocolate, caramel and coffee. Toasty and malty. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Medium to full-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Balanced, chocolatey, then bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a growler at Goose Island Stoutfest. Poured a very deep brown with a medium creamy yellowy-beige head. Light burnt coffee, baker’s chocolate, and faint fruit in the nose. Flavor picked up the exact same stuff. Almost grainy on the palate with a nice burnt malt feel to it. Carbonation was low. This was just OK on all fronts.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Brewery: Deep brown and nearly opaque boby with a small but lasting tan head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of toffee, roasted and burnt malts, coffee, hint of raisin, and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts malt but is never sweet as a hefty dose of bitters , coffee and smoke rush upon the palate. The feel is crisp and displays a slight bite upon the finish. A nice brew and worthy of a try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pours a murky dark brown with a skinny tan head. The aroma is roasted malts, roasted barley, and a big splash of chocolate. Nice carbonation. The flavor is rich ’n’ roasty with chocolate and a bit of toffee. This has more ale qualitites than those of a Schwarzbier, but as Piece says, "It’s a dark bier." Not bad.
