yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2009
From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Roasted malt and light coffeeish aroma. Roasted malty flavoured, sweet and vague toffee/butterish flavoured towards a mild roasted acidity. Bitter and roasted finish.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2010
Draft. A deep red beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma has notes of matl, caramel, and diacethyl. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of fruit combined with medium notes of diacethyl and caramel. Too much diacethyl for my liking.

beerguy101 (5285) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Tasted on tap at the Drakes 1st Annual Beer Festival and Washoes Tournament. This Schwarzbier pours a deep brown color from the tap. Large sized white foamy head. Aroma is roasty malt, chocolate and coffee. A medium bodied schwarzbier. Malts are roasty and chocolate. Hops are slightly bitter and earthy. Nice balance. Roasty malts really stand out. Crisp and clean. Easy drinking. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

DYCSoccer17 (3320) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 3, 2007
$6 pint at the brewpub. Lots of black patent malts in the nose. Holy ash-tray. ig-time smokiness. This stuff smells like a hybrid of smoky bowling alley and Northern New York white trash. Moderately transparent black body with a light tan head that leaves decent lacing. Kind of thin, watery, and chalky with a roasted, burnt chocolate flavor. A bit musty, too. Not much in the way of hops. Pretty bland, thin, and unimpressive.

I had this on tap at the Thirsty Bear Brewpub during RBSG 2009 with kp, beerguy101 and beastiefan roasty, yet with a sweet element to it that just didn’t quite work for me.
