Decent light brown head. Light carbonation. Hearty roasted grains in the aroma with a bit of licorice. Color is a dark dark brown, almost black. Flavor is a little bit thinner than expected but quite good and smooth. Creamy mouthfeel with some subdued roasted flavors. Finish is silky smooth with a hint of bitterness. A very easy drinking beer and a decent schwarzbier.

This one really tricks you into expecting a heavy flavor, but it’s very light. While I prefer beers with more flavor, this one is great in terms of drinkability. Has a smooth taste throughout and quite different than any others.

Enjoyed a bottle of this at a Brazilian resturant in Richmond. Surprisingly light bodied for such a dark beer; the hint of orange or citrus was pleasant in the aftertaste. Not exceptional on my first taste, but I wouldn’t mind trying another.

Has that sour "Hey! I’m a lager!" aroma, but it is nicely buffered by molasses. Flavor is deep, rich malt and hoppy goodness. There is a slightly citrus finish. A bit too carbonated

Light in body for such a dark brew, but full flavored. Hints of chocolate, hebs and grain. Easy to drink a 6 pack if you are not careful

Bottle given courtesy of Indra. Berry flavor initial sip. Eggshell head. Chocolately, creamy, full bodied beer. Not what I was expecting. Kind of watery element to the beverage. I could see somebody drinking this with fudge or chocolate cake. Very faint hop presense. Almost too smooth if such a thing is possible. This is definitely an exotic beer. Not exactly like anything I’ve had before. Thanks Indra, unique experience.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 24, 2004
This is a pleasant and light schwarzbier. Less sweet than many in the style. Light orange and tan head tops the very dark body. The smell is honey and dirt. The flavor is light with molasses and malt. A light moutfeel makes this refreshing.

I may have had an old botttle, but I will rate it as such,. Pours a deep brown, with an off white head. Aromas of brown sugar and chocolate. Flavors of the same that were little too sweet and thick on the palate.

This is a creamy root beer dark lager that pours with a beautiful fluffy head. The aroma is of a typical lager. The flavor is mild and smooth, with a portion of the brew stickiing to my tongue.
