4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma has some lightly roasted malts. The flavour is strong and bitter with lots of burnt malt and coffee. A light hoppy finish helps keeps it fresh enough to be a genuine session beer.

Bottle shared by Erwin Van Moll @ Brewpub Van Moll during the bottling of Benzai’s 10k beer. Dark brown to black color with a nice deep dark red glare coming through when held into the light, medium sized beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is malts, hops and roast blended together nicely. Taste malts, roasted malts, bitter, hop lightly, hop bitter, dark malts, ash. Very nice mix of two different styles. Very well done imo!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from shrubber85 - thanks again, Roger! Pours a cloudy brown with a small beige head that leaves some bubbles within the film and ring. Notes of toasted malts, dry grains, dead leaves, earth, burnt sugar, and a little hockey puck-like rubber. But just barely. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, roasty mouthfeel. Good schwarzbier that I wish I’d been able to open sooner.

12oz bottle, big thanks to phaleslu for sharing. Date on the neck is a bit rubbed off, but it appears to read 6/25/14. Hazy dark brown red color. Thin off-white head. Leaving good bits of lace. Medium plus body, good chewiness to the texture. Nice cocoa nib, dark chocolate, some mild coffee. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Kinda dry finish. Very nice schwarz. Never mind the age... There’s just a touch noticeable, but still super-solid
