5/1/13. On tap at Bad Habitz in Valdosta. Schwarzbier? Ok... listed at bar as black IPA. I hate bars. Deep brown pour with a nice khaki head that laces. Mild chocolate and roast in the aroma with some citrus and bitter kick. Rich bitter hop kick with some roast and chocolate/coffee. Definitely approaching brown IPA category (regardless of yeast). Not bad.

Tap. Pours a weak black with a flavor to match. It had a bit of roasted malt flavor, but it just tasted thin. Flavors that work well in an imperial stout don’t work in a watery beer like this.

So, i avoided this one like the plague for a while just because of the word "lager"..Until last night..finally grabbed one in a mixed sixer..very glad i did. Very nice roasted malt character especially for a 4% beer..nice hops in the background..no lager here. All in all i could drink this regularly. Nice offering!

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.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Poured from bottle to glass. Dark black with tan head. Rich malty coffee roasty smell. Soft smooth malt taste. Good carbonation without being overly fizzy. Nice creamy feeling with a slighty sweet finish. Boy this is good stuff!

Poured very dark with tan head. Head settles to thin layer. Smells roasty, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is malty and a not very (but noticeably) bitter. Finishes slowly with only a hint of bitterness. Not thin but I wouldn’t say thick either. Soft carbonation.

Light coffee color and caramel colored head. Weak but pleasant nose. Then body, but nice roast, malt, grains taste. Okay for a low abv Utah beer.
