Draft. Dark reddish brown in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of mocha and light smoke. Flavors are an interesting balance of ashy roast malt, pilsner malt, smoke, and a hint of dried cherry. Light bodied. Would pair well with grilled meats.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Schell’s Chimney Sweep is inspired by the rich dark lagers of upper Franconia. Black in color with a rich roasty maltiness, firm hop bitterness, and a subtle underlying smokiness.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[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!
