3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had this today and was labeled Midnight Expressions. Very smoky malt character with a taste that is strongly reminiscent of a dry Irish stout. At 4%ABV this is good session beer for dark lager-lovers. I personally like heavier dark lagers but I won’t hold it against such a delicious beer.

It’s like a stout lager. I was really astounded by the amount of deep chocolates present while being light like a lager. A very surprising beer for sure. Serve this one cold.

Pours from big bottle a dark brown with a yellow halo, biege head. Aroma of brown sugar and soy sauce. Flavor of tamari, and chocolate hides a very light body. Roasty toasty nose and a finish that dries out with some hop and alcohol notes.

Thanks to Rustychiles for splitting the bottle with me. Pours jet black with small brown head. Faint roast aroma and not much else. An amazing amount of taste for a Schwarzbier. Very nice roast, chocolate, and burned coffee taste. Pairs very nicely with food; very refreshing for such a dark beer.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 Pours black with a thin dark tan head. Nose is a thick meaty smokiness with some coffee. Not really my thing. The roasted malt and coffee flavors are more prevalent in the taste, but the smoke is there too. Finish starts a little like sour milk but has a nice lasting bitter coffee taste.
