BrotherGrendel (787) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Bottle. Jet black hue with a wonderfully fluffy and persistent brown head. Nose is big roast and grains with a clean lager profile, hints of earthy hops. Flavor is a clean grainy malts with a touch of melanoidins, roast, and coffee/cocoa, earthy-grassy hops provide modest bitterness in the middle, finishes clean and slightly sweet. Medium body, smooth carbonation, watery body texture with frothy head. Super-easy to drink lager with an impressive roasty malt profile.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours a bit to motor-oilish to be true to style. More along the lines porter/stout, but an excellent beer nonetheless. Medium tan head, beautifully smoky, grainy scent. Flavor is not heavy or sweet - lightly nutty, mild chocolate notes, definite background of grassy, fruity hops. Great creaminess to the palate. All around, an excellent beer, very easy to drink with just the right amount of complexity.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Pours a thick, opaque dark espresso brown with thick tan-tinged head. Aroma is very earthy, a mix of rich soil with chocolate coffee. Flavor is roasted malts, cacao beans and bready. Body is fairly light with quite a bit of carbonation.

This is a lovely surprise. I was expecting, based on the label of "black lager" it would be thin and weak like most beers advertised as "black xyz:" thick flavorful wonderful.

A gorgeous looking beer. I?d give it a 6 for appearance if it let me as I don?t think i?ve. Ever seen a beer behave this way upon pouring. Almost like it is creaming bubbling up in the bottle. Dark black, big big big tan head. Mighty bubbles. Great legs. Aroma is mineral, chocolates. Taste is the same with some toasted barley. Creamy feel, with some zip. A very nice beer. Very different. Very interesting. Only "downer" is that I think 22 oz. is really the limit on what you can stand because of how rich it is. This is from 3.13.14.

Tognetta (747) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 15, 2015
Linda cerveja negra, espuma marrom em média quantidade, cremosa, bom lacing, pequenas bolhas irregulares por toda a superfície. Logo ao servir já é possível notar o aroma licoroso, achocolatado, adocicado, em menor quantidade café, cacau; amargor perceptível mas menos intenso, palha seca. Com o aumento da temperatura exalou um odor que lembra xarope, e o chocolate ficou mais intenso. Corpo leve/médio, carbonação média. Paladar bastante equilibrado/prazeiroso, com aftertaste amargo de grãos torrados. Uma boa SchwarzBeer.

Pours black with a small brown head. Smells of caramel, bread, floral. Taste is mildly bitter and sweet, predominantly the roasted malts - chocolate/coffee

Flavor is dark roasted malts and coffee, light grassy hops, a touch of toasted grain, slight ash, and caramel. Finishes moderately sweet with some chocolate.

swanmann (738) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2010
An unmistakably lush, DARK chocolate brown brew with light brown, orange hued foam poured from the bottle. I smell chocolate, but my allergies are making it very difficult. It tastes like espresso, creamy, sweet and bitter. But the hops up front open the flavor wonderfully. The finish lingers deeply bittersweet. Yumm!
