On tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep amber colored body with a thin, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is alright. Some caramel, earth, biscuit, and cocoa with a light roast. Flavor is better. Light roast and nice caramel with a moderate earth. More biscuit and cocoas before finishing mostly dry with a light bitterness and malty roast. Medium length aftertaste following a medium body and light carbonation. Overall, a decent schwarzbier. Not the most impressive, but enjoyable.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown, filtered, almost no head. Aroma is muddy and vegetal, easy drinking, with some molasses, salt, caramel in the flavor. Not bad.

Taster at Piece. Here I had thought this was just a nice dark English ale. Bartender was kind of busy, so I wasn’t bothering him for specifics. But a Schwartz? Nah. My tiny amount looked cloudy brown, with a distinct fruity ale smell. A very nice "Irish Red" ale malt profile, and just a twinge of European finishing hops. I kind of regret not getting a whole glass of this.

Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown, beige head. Toasty malt and some chocolate in the aroma. Toffee, dark bread crust, light chocolate, and faint hops in the flavor. Seems a bit muted overall. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Sweetish overall with a round malt profile, but could be brighter.

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

The menu simply calls it a "dark beer." I was expecting a dunkel. But wow -stout black with only a whisper of a tan head, nice lace. Smoky malt aroma. Flavor is smoky, dark fruits, coffee. If they sold it as a porter I would have believed it. Very good.

Straight from the tanks to our glass. Brewmaster Johnathan Cutler could not have been nicer. Black, thin light tan creamy head. Nose was soft tones of chocolate, grains, and coffee, with lighter hints of raisin. Taste was just about the same with everything coming together very nicely. Light bodied, cask-like carbonation, light coffee and chocolate finish. Would be a perfect session brew...

On tap @ the Brew pub: Pours a dark brown with a white head. Aroma, roasted malts, chocolate and caramel. Flavor, roasty, nutty some caramel, with some earthy notes as well.

Roasted maltiness with caramel, toffee, chocolate and burnt coffee. The texture seemed a bit thin, but OK. Decent and drinkable, if not outstanding.

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.
