Opaque dark brown - black beer. Small dark tan head. Palate is light and dry. Dry dark malt, little cream. However the malt is over roasted making for an unpleasant burned flavour. Finishes tangy and dry.

harrisoni (12651) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle from GBBF 2012. Black beer with big thick tan head. Authentic choccy schwarz aroma. After that things turn more American. Big huge everything afterwards. Aroma a bit like the Klosterbrau schwarz from Bamberg on draught. But the malts are thicker in the mouth here. More hops too. More bitter on the finish. Good thick malty bitter black lager. If anything it just doesn’t need so much bitterness. Good go at the style though. Very impressive. I find this very approachable. Choc is good, bitterness is good, but because it’s a lager it’s still light and agile. Big fan of this. Yep pretty damn good.

A rally pleasant lager. 130805

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2012
Dark brown body with a dark brown head. Rich chocolatey aromas with earthy African sugars and malted milk. Has a nice earthy chocolatey character and lots of bitterness. Not really a schwarzbier per se, but a different and very taste take on a black lager.

Flavor of heavy roasted malt, burnt grain, dark chocolate, pine, and earthiness with a dry, lingering moderately bitter finish. Nicely done!
