4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I have drunk this beer many times and never wrote a review, so now it’s time to do so. I poured this beer out of a 16 oz bottle into a glass. Pours black with a thin tan head, the aroma has a ton of chocolate and malt and the flavor is much of the same. Nice caramel and malty front end with a finish of chocolate and a hint of coffee. Great beer! If you haven’t had this beer before you’re missing out.

Bottle @ The Butcher’s Block, Sarasota, FL.
Dark brown. Nice beige head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma of coffee and chocolate.
Tastes of dark roasted malt, and of coffee & chocolate.
Mouth feel is light, despite the rich flavor. It’s creamy, yet oily. Very good.

Pours nice deep cola in color with a medium light tan head. Aroma is like the color - deep molasses and malts. Taste is rich roasty malts that slowly give way to a medium hop bitterness. There’s a bitter cacao flavor mixed in somewhere. Truly a substantial schwarzbier.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark brown/black brown. Decent beige head. Tons of lacing.
Aroma is of coffee and chocolate. It’s really inviting. I can smell some caramel in there too.
Taste is certainly of dark roasted malt. I taste coffee and chocolate. It almost tastes like an espresso.
Mouthfeel is light, despite the rich flavor. It’s creamy, yet oily. It’s really good!
Overall, it’s really good. That’s about all I can say about it. Totally worthy a try!

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours very dark brown being near black with a sticky tan head that leaves good lacing. Nose of roasted malts with coffee first, then chocolate. Full in body. Creamy and smooth in the mouth . Flavor is mix of chocolate and coffee with something grassy hiding. Finish is somewhat bitter. Darn nice overall.

Defining American Schwarz. Roasty, chocolatey, lightly bitter coffee. Easily drinkable. A strangely incredible beer to come from such a confusing brewery. Sprecher alternates between the great and the godawful like no other brewery I can think of save Short’s.
