12 oz Bottle. Aroma: Malt sweetness, slightly bready with a hint of nutmeg / spice. Appearance: pours black. Nice head that lingers, good lacing. Taste: malty, hops are more subtle than you may expect from the deScription, faint note anise. Palate: well rounded, malt adds a bit of syrupy feel, not a bad note just a bit ’heavier’ / thicker than you’d expect from a lager. Overall: Solid effort. An enjoyable beer.

This came as part of a Schell sampler pack that I purchased in Rochester. Chimney Sweep pours a very dark red hue with a thick head and a nice lacing. The scent has notes of malt and even a bit of chocolate. The taste brings out the malt and small amount of chocolate with a slight smoky finish. This beer is smooth for the most part with a bit of bite. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark pour. Solid head. Bubbly body instead of the thick mouthfeel I was expecting. Smoke flavor. Minimum sweetness.

I have to give this a little lower rating if it is being rated as a Schwartz bier. I feel it is closer to a rauchbier/smoke beer. Smokey aroma. Black in color. Not a lot of smoke flavor. Sweet flavor and sweet finish that coats my mouth with a sugary feel. This is my favorite beer from School and I am glad it came back again this year.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
[Bottle] Very dark brown cola colored pour. Rocky tan head remains on top. Notes of toasted nut, cocoa powder, toffee and dusty grains in the nose. Flavors of chocolate malts, caramel, faint smoke, grains and earthy notes. Good body. Lingering dry graininess in the finish. A nice sessionable beer. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

Rich dark and malty. It’s poorly balanced and I’m over all not that impressed.

Bottle from winter Santa. Liked it. Nice break from weeks of heavy stouts. Not much aroma dark pour nice lacing 4 for palate which is nice. Some sweet malt toffee up front with light chocolate and touch of smoke at end. Would drink more!

commonshawn (794) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Tap at republic. Pint glass with thick off white head. Smells slightly sweet. Roasted and smoky then sweet and malty. Long lasting bacon smoke flavor, though not overpowering. Very interesting but not quite good.

Obfuscate (387) - Minneapolis, - JAN 14, 2015
Dark almost a stout color with a hint of amber at the bottom of the glass. Nice tan 2 finger head. Creamy, roasted malts, light chocolate, easy drinking. I like beer.
