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.

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,

Like most schwarzbiers I’ve had I like it better than most lighter beers, but not nearly as much as a porter or stout. A little roasted malt in the nose. Some malts, chocolate, and molasses. Waxy mouthfeel. Very light palate. Ok, but not exciting.

Did not really seem like a schwarzbier in my opinion. Poured dark brown with a thin head. Mild aroma, slightly sweet. Seemed very light, not one of Piece’s best beers.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours near black with a very thin head and not too much lacing. Nose is roasted malt and not much else. Taste has a light roast character with a hint of sweetness but is mostly pretty dry. Feel is light with good carbonation. Easy sipper but nothing is really there.
Serving type: on-tap

(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.

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.
