Very clever name for this tasty schwarzbier! Pours a deep black and has a nice roasty aroma and flavor to it.

On tap at the Old Fashioned. Dark brown/black. Light coffee/roasted malt, soft Munich-type malts, brown sugar, and toffee. Flavor is a slightly acidic roast-type flavor that doesnít round out well. Fairly light on the palate with trailing mild roast finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Malthouse here in Madison...the color was dark brown, almost black/brown. The head was off white and reduced rather quickly to a ring and film, but left some lacing on the glass. The aroma was roasted coffee and some chocolate notes too a lesser degree. The flavor was a smooth malt, a bit of sweetness, and mild bitterness coupled with a moderate roasty dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thirsty Troll Beer Fest. Pour is deep brown with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of chocolate and moderately roasted coffee beans. Flavor shows sweet caramel with more roasted presence and a touch of earthy hops. Pretty much no smoke to be found. As it warms there seems to be a hint of smoke, but itís so faint that I could be imagining it. This was served way too cold and doesnít much remind me of a schwarz, more like a thin porter.

Tap at the brewpub. Jet black pour with a grayish-white head. Roasted coffee, malt, and mild chocolate on the nose. Moderate mouthfeel. Taste was roated malts, coffee, and a touch of sweet.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Didnít remind me of a schwarzbier in the least. Too raoasty and not carbonated enough.

Another nice beer. Dark pour with light head. Nose of chocolate, coffee and toasty goodness. Flavor is crisp, light and had good roasted character.
