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 (1164) - 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.

Braudog (6115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2005
Poured like motor oil with a big airy, cascading tan head. Little to no aroma. Likewise, I didn’t discern really all that much of the big-bodied flavors I expected. This is smooth and only light sweet ... toffee, mild bitterness ... OK.

Very dark with a very unique sasparilla like taste. The taste signature is very individual. Very strong.

Pours with a three-finger brown head that leaves some lace. Solid black color. Light-medium bodied and light carbonation. Slightly malty nose. Starts sweet - hints of molasses and toffee finishes mellow - not dry. $10.49 for a 6-pak of 12oz. bottles from Tulley’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

This is a pretty good, dark beer. But in my opinion it needs more roasted flavor and more alcohol.

frankenkitty (1987) - 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 (2424) - 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.

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!
