On tap. Pours a cola brown color with a big fluffy head that dissipates slowly. Light aromas of milk chocolate and smoke.Taste of chocolate milk, toffee and butterscotch candies. Caramelized sugar with just a touch of earthy bitterness. Medium bodied, silky, smooth and clean. Not a pilsner.

Similar to a Schwarzbier in flavor. The Pilsner qualities are completely lost. I canít say that Iím crazy about this one.

Picked up a bottle of this product as part of a mix-a-six while traveling through PA.Very regrettable decision - I should have bought a case. This is undoubtedly the smoothest and tastiest pilsner Iíve discovered in recent years. I know Susquehanna is a relatively new brewery and, unfortunately, their products are not yet distributed in New England. Hopefully, Iíll be in PA again before too long and, when that time arrives, a case of Pils-Noir will be coming back with me.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stunned as soon as I began to pour because of how dark it is for a pils. Slight toasted malt scent with thin head. Full flavor that is exceptional for a pilsener. Enjoyed!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Was hoping for more. Crystal malt smell and taste. Finish is flat. Lacks the nice saaz finish or dryness in general. Instead it is sweet. It also lacks carbonation for me. It doesnít have to be like a sprite, but I like some nice suds in a pilsner. Just didnít quite come together for me, especially for a pilsner. Unique try though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty, but not overly sweet. Slight caramel flavor, full with a rather crisp finish. Hints of toast and a touch of hoppy bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours cola brown with a small off white head that is gone before you know it. The aroma is on the malty side with some sweet caramel and nut notes. The taste is sweet caramel, some nuttiness, not very pils esque. Not bad but more of a octoberfest.
