Sampler draft at brewpub. Smoke aspect in the nose. Almost fully opaque with dark reddish hues evident when held to light. Not much lace. Thin flavor; does not deliver on the promise the aroma provided. Smooth. Not a drain pour by any stretch. Would probably be better if served a little colder, although a beer of this style should actually be better a little warmer. An ok beer.

On tap at Titletown. Poured deep brown, near black with a short cap of beige head. The aroma was very rich with deep chocolate and coffee upfront.. wafts of vanilla and earth accented.. not much of a hop presence here, but the malts were presented well. The flavor found sweeter chocolates than the nose indicated, along with black patent, coffee, and a touch of vanilla.. the bitterness that surrounded was hard to place and lacked direction.. sweet overall and a little spicy on the back. Medium-bodied with scratchy carbonation on the palate.. OK flow.. only the bitterness stuck on the finish. Aiight.

Light roasty, slight hop bitterness. Thin but not too thin. Once it warms a bit chocolate comes thru.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 On tap at the Titletown brewpub, this beer pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thick, off-white head that dissolves slowly. Aroma of thick molasses, dark chocolate and toffee. Taste is that of toasted dark malt, a little lactic acidy with some flowery hop flavor. Finish is slightly bitter and a touch of tartness. As Mel Brooks may be proud to see as it was written on the brewery menu chalkboard, "May the Schawrz be with you."
The flavor has appears to be slightly different each year.
2007: Toasted dark malt with some tart berry character
2008: Toasted dark malt with some dry hop and smoked character
2009: Toasted dark malt with some chocolate and a very smooth finish

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown body with a tall, lasting light beige head. Scents of roasted malt and just a hint of biscuit and herbal hops. Flavors follow scents. Thinner flavors in the finish that I’m not sure if I want more or less.
