3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Charleston Beer Works. Pours an opaque coffee brown with a big frothy tan head. Aroma is massive chocolate and nuts and not much else. Maybe some earth and toast. Flavor hits the same notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation that fluffs in the mouth a little. Toasty. Rich. Tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A bold beer great for a cold month. Excellent malty nose with strong chocolate character and yet, hint of vanilla. Light on palette for its weight but leaves with a full mouth feel. Highly recommended on tap.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from my parents. From Growlers. Dark pour with a tan head. Aroma is a little rye spice, lots of coffee, chocolate, and a little ash. Taste is a more pronounced rye, chocolate, and green coffee. Bottle artwork is amazing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home.
pitch dark, gigantic foamy light brown head that settles relatively quickly.roasted malty notes, woody citrussy note, could be infected, it was a little lively when opened.Quite complex aroma with notes of cocoa beans, coffe beans too. nice. Flavor is warming, cocoa, roasted malts, finest chocolate, very nice subtle chilies like bitterness, things play very well together, and it is not at all infected in any way.unusual and very flavorfull and tasty beer, lots of taste for the 5.9% abv. Quite not like Your usual schwarzbier, but very drinkable, very enjoyable
