I tried this a few years ago when it first came out and I thought it was watery crap. I must have had a bad bottle as this isn’t entirely crappy. Pours a pitch-black color with a nice tan head (after a vigorous pour) which left a very nice lace down the glass. It’s already scored higher than the last time I rated it. Aroma is very sweet, almost too sweet, actually, with some serious fruits hiding in the background. Flavor is also very sweet with both dark fruits (dates) and some lighter ones (apricots, strawberries?). It kind of reminds me of a wine cooler or malternative, as in "Seagrams Black Cherry" or something like that, only not nearly as crisp. Eh: not bad, but I’m not a fan of the flavor, and it’s too sweet for the style (Schwarzbier). Palate is creamy, almost like a Sweet/Oatmeal Stout, but kinda sickening-sweet. Overall, I’m glad I gave this another shot as I had a bad representation before, but this definately is not my cup of beer.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2005
Black body with a tan head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, llicorice and caramel malts. Flavour is ratsed with some chocolate but a little thin and lacking in body, not that smooth either. Slight bitter finish.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Black pour, no head. Roasted malt with coffee and herbal notes in the nose. Flavor is sweet then roasted then coffee/chocolate. Medium body. Complex. Better than expected.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Pours black with a brown head. Fruity, molasses aroma. Very unique flavor. Malty and slightly smoky, but not overly so on either. Very smooth. I kind of like this one.

JonMoore (1981) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2005
Decent enough black lager. Malty, slightly fruity and sweey. Quite thin bodied. Fairly drinkable. Not bad, but not particularly worth seeking out.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2005
Unique but at the same time rather strange. Grimy industrial aroma. No head or lacing to speak of - looks more like Coca Cola than any beer offhand. I wonder if there are sugar extracts of some sort added, as this is rather sweet for 4.4% and it has a soda pop element to the body (most colas use "high fuctose corn syrup"; I wonder if this beer does). But who knows, the "secret ingredient" might be some exotic herbs chewed into pulp by the Rainforest People. Still drinkable but definitely way out of its style.

Black Coloring with Espresso Head. Perhaps a Slightly Fruity Aroma? Sweet Malt. Rich Bread Dough...Thick Body...a Nice Sweet and Rich Tasting Brew.

Pours black ( ruby when held to the light ) with a thin tan head. Has a fruity aroma and flavors of fruits (apple, grape, raspberry ), and honey.
