BillKismet (3991) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2009
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.

Skyview (5868) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2007
On draught at the Bayern brewerys 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.

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)

Draught at the Brewpub:Clear brown color, light head and lacing. Nose of light roast and tomato sauce, the flavor is light. Chewy body but not much flavor. I like a bit more roast and flavor is my schwarz. Very vegetal in the tail.
