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 during my Great Lakes region brew tour. Silky black pour with some red hues and a white head. Caramel and peat are in the nose. This has a very low hop profile. It’s light in the mouth and sweet, though slightly tart like sourdough. Pretty straightforward Schwarz.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - SEP 11, 2010
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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 25, 2009
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.

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Mug served at the brewpub bar with a dark brown appearance and light ruby tones showing through. The head was a modest, off white to light tan with fair cling to the lacing. Everything about this beer was light. In the aroma, there was very subtle German malt scent, roasted notes as mocha and hints of sweetness and caramel. The flavor was similar, adding some low bitterness to the somewhat thin body. Subtly dry was the finish. A no frills, sessionable, black lager.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2005
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...

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2007
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.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Roasted maltiness with caramel, toffee, chocolate and burnt coffee. The texture seemed a bit thin, but OK. Decent and drinkable, if not outstanding.

Medium, semi-translucent brown in color. Aroma is dry chocolate shavings and a faint trace of tiramisu. In typical flavor fashion, chocolate and roasted malts strive for attention in a gentle fashion. Pecans along with a hint of iced coffee come through to lick the palate as well. Light with low bitterness, and dry, as it should be. Nice, easy going, safe interpretation, yet a solid effort.
