Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Served in a snifter. An aggressive pour yields a solid 1+ finger light tan creamy head that is falling steadily as I watch, leaving a substantive lacing on the sides of the glass. The color is black, with some clear brown on the edges when examined with a light. Aroma is mild and elusive, perhaps that of a light chocolate bar with a touch of vanilla. Flavor is mild and balanced, with a hint of sweetness, a hint of bitterness, and a light roast malts. Palate is as promised, creamy and pleasing, driven more by the soft carbonation and less by the body. At 4.4% this is a decent session beer.

Good opaque pour w/ a retaining tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is a little funky - kind of sweet yet sour. The taste is relatively clean w/ a little bit of that odd sweet/sour combo & a touch of roastiness. Easily drinkable if nothing else!

16 Oz. draught at Biermarkt, Don Mills, ON. 4.6% Alc./Vol. Pours an opaque dark brown colour with a small tanned head. Aroma of Grapes, raisins, plums, and cherries. Taste matches the aroma and has notes of mocha and coffee. Medium carbonation. Very smooth and drinkable.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was somewhat dark and a slight brown around the edges. The head was about a finger’s worth of white foaminess that dissipated within about thirty seconds. The lacing, well, it slides for the most part. The smell didn’t really have much but what was there was a light roasty coffee aroma trying to run about but ends up coming across extremely light. The taste was basically the same as the smell. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and decent for the style. Overall, I say this was a good Schwarzbier I could have again.

suurjuust (1031) - ESTONIA - AUG 12, 2014
Black beer, small brown head. Nose is malts, light roast. Flavor is sweet chocolate-toffee notes with bready malts, mild bitterness and slight roast in the finish. Fizzy but almost sticky mouthfeel. Too sweet for me.

pootzboy (1586) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
a wonderful decadent Schwarzbier (light-bodied German black lager) brewed by an award winning Brazilian craft brewer. This is a more intense interpretation of the traditional Schwarzbier style with just a fleeting hint malt sweetness before the rich roasty-chocolaty flavour goes into a dry, hoppy clean finish. This is one of the best black lagers I’ve tasted – slightly rich without losing its light bodied character – like Kostritzer on steroids. If they were serving this in Brazilian sports bars during world cup, no doubt it made Brazil’s loss much more palatable.

Nice light brown top at first. Smells like ... astually has no special aroma, but tastest like a rootbeer, quite sweet. Overall it’s a nice black beer for summer, I think It would be weak in winter, but for a dark lager, this is a very pleasant beer at a very hot summer day.
