3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep amber color out of the bottle with a foamy beige head. Sweet caramel nose with some roasted grain notes. Brown sugar and some table sugar sweetness with some toasted white bread, burnt sugar and some dark pit fruit flavors. Nice roasted, almost smokey finish. This is very drinkable if a little sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of carmel, cocoa, toasted malt and light earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, toasted malt, cocoa and light earthiness with a smooth lingering cocoa finish. I had no idea what style this was when I rated it. I assumed it was a brown ale, nothing about it made me think Schwarzbier.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   Little sparce off-white head, with little lacing.   Pretty much soft toasted malts, perhaps a little roasty.   Coming across as a Blackbier already.   A little lighter on the tongue than expected, well in
terms of roastiness anyway.   Has this soft grassiness with a very very pale toasted malt character.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   More roast builds towards the finish.   Seems more grassy, not as bright as others.
Obviously its darker and roastier, which isnt a bad thing.   Kudos for something new, but not sure its what I would seek out again.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. Poured a dark reddish amber with a frothy tan head. Malty aroma and taste. They achieved their goal; I would love some enchiladas with this.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had it out of a bottle, poured a dark brown color with a yellow head and even lacing. The aroma was a Budweiser disguised as a dark beer, the taste was very watery.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of foamy medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy dark yellow colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was hoppy malty yeasty and banana. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow malty aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of yeast banana hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Dark muddy blackish color. Very little aroma. Taste was surprisingly good. Smooth and full bodied with no aftertaste. Carbonation was perfect. Nice beer.
