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 (1447) - 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 (3836) - 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.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2005
Pours almost black very dark brown. Decent Tan head that hangs around for a bit. My glass had almost no aroma. Maybe a little malt and something a little sweet but not much. The flavor is mostly roasted with a hint of chocolate. On the palate it is more watery than a porter or a stout and kind of dry on the finish. Not a bad beer to try. I had no idea what to expect when I picked this up. I’ve definitely had worse.

neocon (34) - Gold Canyon, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2005
Dark beer with a hint of chocolate. Nice thick head. Leaves almost a sweet aftertaste of fruite. Very nice.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2005
Black-brown with aromas of molasses and anise. Sweet and smooth with a syrupy malty flavor that is thick and chewy. Mild bitterness in the aftertaste. Rich and creamy with a dark roasted aspect. Somewhere between a porter and stout. Very unique flavor profile.

Sammy (9582) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2005
OK black appearance with a bit of head. And lace. Some licorice initial scent, that carried into first taste then dissipitated. A big bottle, thanks Joey for coming to help me finish. Bit aggressive carbonation.
