3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark chocolate brown with ruby edges. Nice tan head with a solid sheet of lacing on the glass. The nose is lightly fruity with some hop notes and light sweet roasted qualities, some husky malts. The flavor is balanced with a sweet chalky roasted malt note with a creamy mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and clean with a bit more light roast and light toasted fruit. I can drink a few more of these.

Black/Amber in color with a nice light tan head. Beer is full of roasted flavor and aroma. Palaate is very lingering. Good Brew.

This is a ruby tinted dark beer which poured with a very nice foamy beige head. The nose was somewhere between malted milk balls and toast. Light body for the color, with a white sugar sweetness with some chocolate and roasted grain notes. Finish has a little coffee bean bitterness to it as I exhale. Easy to drink. I canít believe that this is my first schwarzbier rated on this site.

Iíll let everyone else tell you what this beer looks and smells like. Iíll tell you it tastes good. Light spice scent and flavor and the malt flavor is close to a stout. A must try!

Nice, a deep dark lager style with a heavy dose of chocolate malt and taste. Slight oily mouthfeel doesnít take away from drinkability. Drink while chilled, as it does not warm up well.

Pours with a dark brown to black body with red tinting topped by a medium thick head with little lacing. Itís slightly sweet and malty with a subtle caramel note and a touch of roast...a little weak in the aroma, however the flavor is full and rather impressive. Medium bodied, smooth and a touch warming.

Poured dark brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma was weak compared to other Schwartzbiers Iíve had. There was chocolate, licorice and fruits. The taste at the beginning reminded me of a blueberry yogurt. As it went down the chocolate became more pronounced along with the licorice. Other beers of this style have a coffee taste. I was lacking that here but this was still a good beer.

12 oz bottle-pours a tan creamy head. Color is a clear black with tint of red. Aroma-light licorice. Flavor threw me a curve, I expected a licorice, dark flavor and it tastes like a standard lager with a nice blend of malt and light hops. OK, as I get futher through, itís taste of chocolate is becoming more pronounced. A good beer.
