Dark cola colored beer with a white head. Aromas of peat and dark chocolate. Tastes of smoked malts, peat, some meaty flavors, earthy notes, and some dark chocolate. Bitter, smoky finish. Surprisingly smooth. This was great.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear deep brown color, long-lasting 1/2" tan head, swirls and bands of lace. Taste is toasted caramel malt that purrs through the palate, adding butter rum, and then just a twist of hops to keep everything well-balanced in the finish. An amazing Schwarzbier, especially at only 4% abv. High recommendations.

Bottle. Black with a thick mocha head. Aroma is chocolate and roast. Taste follows suit with lager yeast. Medium mouthfeel and carb. Enjoyable.

Can pour. Coffee black with white head. Lots of dark bread on nose. Toasted malts. Some light chocolate and faint lager yeast. Taste leads with toasted malts, mild coffee and rounds out with earthy hops. Chalky finish.

Smell is roasted malts and hazelnut. Creamy smooth easy drinking. Taste roasted malts but rather bland Dixie and shiners black lagers are miles above this. Very bland and very bland finish nothing offensive just not much going on. Just another micro brew blah...

355ml bottle from the mixed 6 section of the Calais ME Shop n' Save. What a nice surprise. Stout black, moderate head. Roasty, toasty aroma. Toasted bitterness and the malt was more roasted than sweet. Lager body, but smooth. Overall, more like a more intense Guinness black lager than something German. A stout for lager drinkers, but in a good way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at Earls Beer and Cheese. Pours deep brown with thin head. Toasty chocolate, malt and bitter coffee in taste and nose. Palate is weak. Ok

Bottle at the house. To be honest, lagers to me are generally just ’ok’ but this was a pleasant surprise. The aroma was full or roasted notes, chocolate, a faint sweetness, and coffee. Body was medium with a creamy palate. Flavor was full-on with balanced notes of roasted malts and sweetness. Chocolate and coffee are well represented but not over the top. At 4%, this guy is a winner.
