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.

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.

I liked this beer. Nice dark color with little to no lacing. No noticeable aroma. Smooth and decent flavor. Would buy it again.
