Brought back from Toby’s great Montana Growler round up. Pours out a amber topped with a sand head. Aroma was of nut brown and roast malts. Taste was more of the nuts along with some sweetness. ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 28, 2009
10th rating of this brew...Growler - Thanks Toby! - Pours thin an dk dk brown with a small tan lead...aroma is burnt wood and a bit of lager skunk, roast...flavour is similar, with some light grain and grass keeping this on the thinner side...decent smoke and toast, with lively carbonation and a malty finish....

Chestnut brown with a firm 1" thick lightly browned head. Light, characteristic Schwarz roastiness floats from the glass, however the body mostly lacks the roast component and just tastes like a German lager with a hint of roast malt bitterness.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2008 On tap at Green Dragon in PDX--Poured a brown-black thinish body with a mild cream head. Nutty, sweet, smooth, mildly spicily hopped. Sessionable and crisp. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2008
On tap at the PDX Green Dragon. Pours dark red, close to black, small tan head. This was a really pour schwarzbier, felt like they just took their pils and added some chocolate malt. Very grassy and grainy like a pils, but with just the slightest roasted malt character at the front. Lacked the silky smoothness and maltiness of a good schwarz.

On tap at the Wolf Pack in West Yellowstone. Pours a dark brown with a light off-white head. The aroma was roasted malts and nuts. The flavor was a full and smooth dark fruits, some toasted malts, and some nut bread. Not bad. kyzr (1607) - Montana, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Dark pour with thin creamy off-white head. Very much a roasted malty nose. Flavor is roasted caramel with some fruit, a touch of hops. Medium body with light carbination. Finish is clean and dry. Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2007
On draught at the Bayern brewery’s tap room in Missoula, Montana. Pours a clear cola cramel colored brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and spotty lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, flowery hops and a touch of bitter apples. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium bodied with some flavors of tart fruit, dried dark pitted fruit and some citrus zest. Finish is slightly multi-grain gritty, dry with an average bitter aftertaste. Braudog (6900) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2007
Draft pint at the brewery taproom. Very dark red with virtually no head. Nice round roasty flavors, though. Lightly cooked caramel, dark fruity, delicious dark lager. (#2928, 5/19/2007) billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Tap @ Dog & Grog Virginia City, MT. Amber/brown w light beige head & fair lace. Dry tasting lager on the upper end of light bodied. Nice dry, sour, bitter finish. Won’t seek it out but wouldn’t hesitate to drink again.
