oh6gdx (22073) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottled. More or less black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, mild coffee, some slight ashes as well as some toffee and sweet maltiness. Flavour is roasted malts, quite big on the bitter notes, mild ashes as well as some sweet malts to it. Quite nice bitter finish. Not your typical Schwarzbier, but still a pleasant brew.

Poured from tap to glass at the farm in Independence. Dark hue with tan head. Aroma is malt, sulphur, roast, floral. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a bitterness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is an enjoyable brew.

Tognetta (211) - Campinas, 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.

Roasty, complex aroma with lots of chocolate. Surprisingly light on the palate with muted coffee and chocolate flavors. Good clean finish. A fine schwarzbier.

coldbrewky (1491) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Bottle via Bonster via pistolpete. Overall a lighter stout that is heavily infused with both hops and coffee. Nice to see a bio-regional brew, still with atll its pomp and circumstance on the label it falls short of excellent. A semi watery finsh undulates about the unbalanced coffee and hops.

17thfloor (2436) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a fantastic shinny near black with a great foamy frothy mocha head. Aroma is pretty nice, chocolate cookie mostly, faint hint of citrus hops, cocoa, light and springy for style. Flavor follows, smooth chocolate cookie, kind of soda-poppy, malt hops yeast yeah yeah it’s all there, finish is weak and watery, too much cookie without anything backing it up, feels kind of vacant, I do like the yeastiness though, bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, smooth fizzy carbonation, chalky and watery. Far from what a German schwarz should be, I’m seeing a lot of these same chocolate-cookie takes on the style in America.
