beerseer (51) - Lewiston, Maine, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Very dark (opaque) with light brown head. Head dissipates quickly. Smells sweet and a little like coffee. Taste fairly weak, and feels somewhat watery on the palate. Lacks strong finish.

mjg74 (2717) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours very dark in color. Almost totally opaque. Oily, liquorice, semi-sweet aroma. Dark toffee flavor has alot if similarities with foreign stouts. A little thin in the finish.

mephisto (1275) - TAIWAN - AUG 2, 2005
twist top, jet black w/ brown head. subdued caramel aroma w/ hint of coffee, it’s smooth and fairly drinkable. light bodied, rather thin, though expected. it has a hint of coffee and roasted barley. there is really not that much to say, similar to a german dunkel.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Poured a totally opaque black into my glass. Nice off-white colored head didn’t last and had no lacing. I could not detect any aroma or much flavor for that matter. There is something of a metallic taste though. Very watery body with some carbonation. Other than the appearance, I can’t see anything good about this beer.

shrubber85 (8748) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Bottle. Light caramel malt aroma. Black opaque color with little head. Sweet sugar cane malt flavor - very pleasant. Medium body - not too heavy, not too light. Alcohol content low for a schwarzbier - should really be a dunkel. Still nice and enjoyable - really like the cane sugar flavor.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 pours inky black with a small brownish head, not much on smell a faint smell of molasses,the taste is also of molasses, very smooth with a very little bit of bitterness.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2005
I really couldn’t pick up any aroma. Deep black. Small head. Flavor is like a cheap lager at first then some malty sweetness, almost raisiny, flavor comes in. I personally love schwarzbiers, but this one lacked the smooth all the way through malt profile of the German Schwarzbiers I love. Decent, but it tastes a little too much like it’s normal lager originators.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 8, 2005
Poured black with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate and molasses. Taste is slightly sweet, with tastes of cocoa and a touch of coffee. Very smooth and drinkable.
