frankenkitty (1962) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Pours like a porter (I like it already)... deep, thick, red/black with an oily tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, raisin, some peachy sweetness, and a hint of vinyl. Flavor started sweet and ended with a sour-bitterness. Carbonated mouthfeel nicely thinned out the thickness of the body.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUN 11, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2005 A black pour. Almost no aroma. Hints of roast and coffe in the flavor, but nothing to be desired. Smooth and easy to drink, but lacking complexity. Overpriced at $10 for a 6 pack. MolsonCoors? It’s got the watery part... now divide the price in half and you have a winner.

TheBeerGod (5433) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Bottle. Black body with a dark brown head. Nose is roasty malts, light cocoa, dark chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is sweet malts, roasty notes, dark chocolate, light hint of caramel and thinned coffee. Body is medium and moderately carbonated. Finish is some milk chocolate, some lactic notes, roasted malts and light smokiness. Goes well with some cookie dough ice cream also!

JoshuaB (475) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2005 Bottle : Had this at Sushi Samba. Not much of an aroma. Smells of some roastiness. Pours and looks like a stout. Tastes nothing like. I thought it was pretty watery. Roasted chocolate with a slight bite at the end. Not much complexity to this beer. Wouldnt try again.

TheDean (786) - MIlwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Interesting auroma, smells like spent coffee grounds that have been left out for a month. Almos the perfectpour though (just a little more head would do it). WOW, is this beer SWEET. Taste like an Eisbock with about a dozen sugar cubes added. Not a big fan.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Bottle. Very black opaque body with a thin dark tan head. Faint licorice and cola nose. Taste is burnt toast, figs and Moxie, all subdued. A disappointing beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2005 Pours a thick, midnight black. Aroma is a field with cow manure dispersed intermittently among dew-soaked grass. Taste is weak hops, semi-sweet malt, and Sweet-N-Low. Tastes like a store brand version of Lone Star. Not good. Avoid. Stick to topless women and carnivals, Brasil; you don’t do beer well.

TChrome (1432) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Nice looking beer pouring almost black with a well retained tan colored head. Aroma is benign. Flavor is a decent amount of sweet malt and just a touch of smoke. Very easy drinking. Good, especially for such low ABV.

Nuffield (3735) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2005
I first had this beer years ago at a Christmas tasting (well before my Ratebeer days), and now I have it again. This was my tenth schwarzbier, I think, and it isn’t the top of the category, to be sure. Nice label. Very suppressed aroma, and a light cardboard flavor (moderately sweet) are all that come out of the blackness. Schwarzbiers play such a mindgame, since you expect so much flavor from such a malty brew, but then you get a much lighter, less bountiful drink. This one came out as something like a Shiner Bock with food coloring. Not bad, just not worth having again, all things considered.
