Nice schwartz bier. Full bodied roasty lager with a smokey finish that lingers for just a moment or two. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 Pretty much black with a nice foamy tan head with longevity. Aroma is rich, dark roasted barley. Flavor is rich dark roasted barley as well but with enough balancing bitterness to not make this beer too sweet. Coffee and chocolate undertones. Cool on the palate and drinks more like an ale. Just good. No reason not to make this a goto front porch sitter. Its what shiner black tried to be. Even better its lower abv than light macros.

Pour: Dark brown with a big tan head. Smell: herbal & floral hops, lager yeast, light malt, charcoal. Taste: roasty and malty w/ a decent amount of hops. Very light chocolate and espresso notes Tart, semi dry finish-not too bitter. Very light and easy to drink. A good beer. :)

Wow. Bottle from Ty. Black pour with medium lingering head. Nose is coffee and sweetness with a bit of smoke. Body is smooth and mellow. Coffee and chocolate in there with just a mild lingering bitterness to remind you that those Utah people are Crazy. ---Rated via my mouth

Dark color with a good taste of an usda organic beer. 1st ever for me. Woody, roasty, earthy.

This is nice. Some light but adequately roasty chocolate flavor. A surprisingly thick beer for the flavor and alcohol content. Good.

Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Pours black, khaki head with nice lacing to bottom. Little smoky, roasty and some plum on the end of the nose. Taste is clean, smoke is there but not overwhelming, nice creamy mouthfeel. Amazing this beer has so much going on for 4%

Great beer but it could be some more ABV. Nice dark colour and head. The carbonate could also been increased. Overall ok but not more. Wonderful label though! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
