This traditional lager is medium in body with a deep roasted character. Its dark color and rich malty flavor come from specially roasted caramel and chocolate malts. This brew is lightly hopped with Noble Bavarian hops for a soft spiciness and a smooth clean finish. Cheers!

I was extremely disappointed with this one. Poured dark brown, like a cherry cola. Small off white head. Small malt profile, no hops. Nothing to the mouth feel, Kind of watery. tried this hoping for the best...

Light, almost nonexistent aroma - very slightly sweet. Pours a medium, dark black with a hint of red. Thin white head with minimal lacing. Taste is sweet and malty with a noticeable caramel notes. Almost bordering on a porter, with just the right amount of carbonation. Palate is almost syrupy with a thick slide down the back of the tongue. Very drinkable without being too heavy or too sweet. Yum.

Not a bad example of a Schwarzbier. Nothing remarkable, though. A very drinkable beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 2, 2005
Bottle. Deep mahogany, tan head, clear. A clean roasted carmel malty aroma. Malty rich carmel and malt flavor. Not harsh and very lightly hopped. A nice effort.

Dark just about black body. Roasty caramel aroma. Flavor includes roasty malts and definite notes of coffee and chocolate. Nice and smooth and silky texture and very enjoyable. Nothing too complex here, just a good beer... and its from a macro too.

I’m assuming this is a remake of the Longshot brews from about nine years ago. Dark, near black chestnut color with a fluffy dark bone colored head. Roast malt, light coffee and dark chocolate aromas. Some hints of caramel. Quite dry and a touch sticky up front for my type of lager. Seem to be real thin and bubbly in the finish. Black malt with a touch of sulfur. Really not much else going on in this one.

Malty chocolate aroma and flavor. Hint of caramel. Nice looking pour with a dark tan head that dissipates too quickly. Palate is average and a little disappointing. Lacking in any really distinctive character, but a nice beer.

Bottle. Pours a DEEP DEEP mahogany with very thick dark tan creamy head that leaves some lace. Smells of roasty malts, caramel and vanilla with a hint of creamy coffee. Taste is sweet and roasty with a sour and slightly hoppy finish. Chocolate and coffee are present along with a nutty taste in the finish. Medium body. Aside from the mass-produced-beer sourness and unnecessarily high carbonation, this is a pretty solid beer from Sam Adams.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Nice dark black color,small tan head that faded slowly leaving just a hint of lace behind.The aroma was pretty decent.Malty and maybe even sorta sweet at times with a nice roasty side some very mild hops in the background along with a little caramel perhaps.The flavor wasn’t bad at all,Nice roasty flavor with a bit of chocolate and caramel and a sweet side that is nicely done.The hops are there but fairly faint.Over all a nice try for these guys since they don’t do alot of really outstanding brews.Well worth a try.
