10.26.04 12oz bottle. This beer poured almost balck with a medium brown head. Aromas are very light caramel and chocolate. Flavor is actually quite bland, not much going on but a watery, sugary mess. What the heck is this supposed to be? Mild brine to finish as if a touch of soy was added to this fizzy simple syrup. Quaffable, sure, but I just don’t get the style. Reminds me of Stroh’s, if Stroh’s was sweeter and black. Also makes me weirdly aware of my teeth. for some reason. Everything I’ve ever not liked about schwarzbier (which I’ve come to enjoy recently) is embodied in this stuff.

Padron4KM (616) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Pours a dark brownish black, large tan head. light lacing.
Aroma is light caramelized sugar and malt.
Flavor is sweet, coffee with too much sugar kind of flavor.
Creamy mouthfeel with a short and sweet finish.
ok beer. I might buy this again if it were $6 a six pack, but at $8 a sixer I don’t think so.

Somewhat sweet taste, pours very dark, almost black... aroma of caramel and malts, very smooth but the simplicity of this beer is its downfall. A decent schwarzbier.

very black, lighter than a stout of the same color. hints of sweet ginger, almost like ginger ale has been used to lighten up a cream stout.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Black as a piranha’s heart, with a frothy cream-colored head. Aroma is simple, vegetal, tiny hints of cocoa, butter, and-?-corn? Palate: extraordinarily smooth. but with a very brief finish. Sure and powerful malt, and very little in the way of hops. Tasty, though, if simple. Very sweet, with some coffee and toffee flavors peeking into the flavor profile, but just a little. Quite smooth, and easy to drink. This was once available in my area, and I visited it often in the dawn of my beer exploration. I thought it exotic then, with the label and locale, but forgot that it is rather rudimentary.

Pours out pitch black with a nice tan head. Has a roasty/malty aroma that follows into the taste. It has a rather subtle hop flavor with a good presence of malts.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2004
This is extremely black in appearance with a tan/light brown head. The smell was mostly sweet maybe even a little like candy. Taste was nothing like I expected. I was warned before drinking it ans was still not prepared for the difference. Great beer - nice to give to non dark beer drinkers.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2006 Wow, this one has been in storage for about a month or so,. For a Molson (Coors) brewed product, I am very impressed. The pour is opaque, with a muddy tan head that quickly scatters, leaving no lace. The nose is a ringer for a cabernet. Even the flavor comes out with notes of sweet/tart grape. A thinner, smooth mouthfeel without being watery. Kudos to a pseudo-macro!

Now this is one interesting brew. Pours dark as night blacker than black my friends. Deep tan head dies very quickly. Gone. Nose is incredibly like a Cabernet...I mean like dead on. Sweet, grapey, the sourness of the grapeskins and the sweetness of the oak and saccharine in the grapes themselves. I am really quite shocked. Flavors match this in both sourness or I should say tartness and sweetness. Very fruity and yet on the back end mildly bitter. A very interesting brew I might say that despite how others have claimed it’s loyalty to the schwarz style it is not roasty nor dry enough to be so. I don’t know. Good brew G-rat

Definitely a good example of a schwarz. Thin, tan colored head. All of the roasted maltiness of a stout, but without the overly thick and creamy mouthfeel. Distinctive flavor. but nothing was too overbearing. Not bad.
