3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth The beer poured a dark maroon opaque color with a foamy off white or beige head and lacing. This is refreshing drink. The aroma had some coffee and caramel malt. The medium body beer had average carbonation. The finish was clean with the taste like a black IPA without the bitterness.

Tap. Deep brown with one finger head. Roasted malt, but rather light body. I definitely like this better than dark lagers.

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear, dark cola colored brew. Mild aroma of toasted grain. Taste is light and nible but backed by a slightly sweet toasted maltiness. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, thanks to a chill dude. Pours a deep reddish brown appearance with a thin brown head. Toffee, light cocoa, cola, dark chocolate, and some grass in the nose. A bit on the sweet side. Nice brown sugar / burnt sugar taste. Some nice herbal and grassy hoppy notes. Kind of a good beer but a little too sweet.

First Saint Arnold product I’ve tried. Set the bar high for all their products. Was definitely not what I expected when I tried it for the first time and I was surprised

Nice lacing. Very malty. Slight spicy note in the finish. Not bad, but not a great beer.

Bottle via trade. Watery cola looking pour. Thin highly carbonated palate. Stale malts and maybe tea? Not really digging this.

Draft at Barley Oak. Clear maroon color, beige head. Aroma of roasty coffee grounds. Taste is light bodied straw and hay. Like a black IPA in reverse.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This has nothing like a kolsch existing. Over carbonated. Thin lasting head.
Not sweet or floral. Good example of a ruined kolsch.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Brass Tap - on tap. Dark brown pour, decently thick off white head, nice lacing. Aroma is slightly nutty with some cola accents. Flavo is kind of bland, some light nuttiness, a brief wisp of chocolate and potting soli, but not too much going on here. Smooth mouthfeel - overall not very schwarzbier-like.
