Black. Thin head is almost completely diminishing except for a small ring around the edge. Fraint aroma is earthy and winey. Fruity front (raisins, wine). Somewhat sweet with coffee overtones. Watery with little carbonation. Easily drinkable but I find myself craving more body and flavor.

Tan, quickly diminishing head. Aroma is of heavy, full-bodied hops. Through the blackness, there are ruby undertones. While the description says sweet and tart, I only found the sweet ones, although they are not over done. Smooth drinking. Maybe not as complex as I like dark beers to be, but again that is just my opinion. On second taste, this is really sweet, almost like root beer, but then the finish comes in and reminds you are drinking real beer. Not bad.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 11, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2003 A lovely apperance to this beer, though the carmel toned head fades a bit too quickly to enjoy. Nose is a bit thin and watery...what's there is nice, but we need to smell more of it! The flavor is somewhat smooth and creamy, though it lacks potency like the aroma. Overall, a decent schwarzbier, but it needs a bit more "umph."

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2003
Dark brown with a light brown, bubbly head. The nose is Lightly choclatey with a tinge of sweet malt and licorice. The body is quite spritzy with just the lightest inkling of roast that comes up again towards the finish. Sweet, corny malt connotations that dry off bittersweet towards the end. Not a bad schwarz, a bit too sweet.

Crit (3350) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2003
Black with large lasting head. Toasty malt nose promises more than the flavor delivers. Rather thin bodied and brown sugar sweet.

Stylish label. Malty, with not much bitterness to speak of. Nice and smooth. Interesting.

herbstress3 (221) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2003
Looks like soda without the bubbles. Very different taste than I had expected. Very thin and light tasting. Very drinkable but no taste.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2003
The aroma and flavor here is full of grape and raisin - very wine-like in taste and mouthfeel. The flavor is very refreshing - the black color is rather misleading actually - light and fruity, as though this were made form Carmen Miranda’s headwear. Overall it fell a bit short, but thirst quenchers like this aren’t brewed for monumental impact.

Maybe I should not rate this one, but this was the tough one on the round the world at the chimes. Can not remember well enough to rate acuratly, tasted to me like brewed decaying leaves.

Black pour, small tan head. Aroma is sweet, flavor follows with too much sweetness and not much else.
