hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2006
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.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - FEB 22, 2007
12 oz pour at the brewery. Dark brown with a wispy head. Again, a light aroma that has lightly sharp grain with a hint of must and sweetness. The flavor is mostly malty with hints of sweetness and grain (roasted). Light molasses and/or brown sugar. Light medium body but the mouth feel is dull and unexciting on the tongue.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2010
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.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
On tap at the brewery into a mug...Pours a watery looking dark brown with TONS of amber highlights that is slightly darker than a coca cola. A very light tan head that is gone quickly...The aroma and taste are all a sweet German bock. Aroma is super matly with sweet brown sugar and caramel and the taste is the same, almost too sweet though and not enough bite to make you want to drink more. Easy to drink at 4% but not worth getting.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2006
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.

tmoreau (2284) - 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.

hombrepalo (1800) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2008
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.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Sampler on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice darker brown with dark amber! Lighter edges, opaque middle, decent light offwhite head with a ring on the edges. Aromas are mellow, light caramel and toffee mix in with light earthy hops, small with biscuits. Initial is biscuits, toffee, lighter bodied with nice sweetness, light hops. A pretty nice darker lager, quite drinkable with nice sweetness, light hops. Nice
