Probably favorite of the Saranacs, with a high chocolate, malty character. Great beer for the price, would have liked it to be a little more thick and full though.

S_Side_Smitty (700) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2016
Pours cola brown with a medium light tan head. Aroma is caramel, deep malts and something slightly buscuity. Taste is not that heavy with some caramel sweetness and some easy pilsener bitterness. The malts kinda round it all out. Easy to drink schwarzbier, but not super complex.

Chewy first taste. A bears ass for sure. It's a bit watery, but true to the label it's not too malty. No after taste. No memory to encourage a repeat. ���� ---Rat via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marko (4798) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 26, 2015
At the Loop Hotel with Hrabren, visnja666v and Goran (thanks guys!).
. Blackish, extremely dark amber really. Dull sweet aroma, raisins. Light, light creamy, raisiny taste, more sweet than dry. Vague soapy notes, pollen. This is awful for a Schwarzbier and just an average Dunkel, below average even. There is ABSOLUTELY NO reason to import it here. Useless and way too expensive (again, here).

0.33 at Loop hotel, Folka. Dark brown with small head. Raisin, malts, dry figs, maybe some chocolate, caramel. Light body, roasty bitterness, malty taste. Watery. Not good.

Do yourself a favor and drink 2 before rating, the initial taste will throw you off , but it delivers a decent mouth feel and taste.
