Panzuriel (2125) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2014
On tap at the secret sandwich society in Fayetteville WVa. This beer is a nearly opaque black brown brew with a small head of white bubbles. Nose is a good medium roast coffee but also a not crisp and a hint of roasted nuts. Taste was a clean and refreshing roasted nut taste with a hint of sweetness on the finish. Body was light and fluid. Finish was just a hint of good bitters.

Tap at Apothecary Ale House - Morgantown. Pours clear black with a small, frothy beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is roast and coffee malt, prunes, smoke, and herbal hops. Flavor is malt dominant with dark fruits, light hops and bitterness, a clean lager character and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Drake (13301) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Draft at Pies & Pints Fayetteville. Pours a clear dark ruby color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of chocolate, nuts, mild roasty notes, dark fruits. The taste is chocolate, mild raisin and nutty notes, mild hop finish. Nicely balance, low carbonation, medium bodied and a worthy 6400th rating!

johnnnniee (4112) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Pours a brownish black color with virtually no head atop it. Leaves some lace on the way down. Smells of coffee and chocolate with a pilsner malt backbone. The aroma seems a bit heavy on the coffee for the style. The flavor follows the aroma fairly well, with a flavor that seems more porter like than lager like. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet sugary mouthfeel. Not a bad brew, but Ive had better Schwatz before.

Nickls (2498) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Tap. Light tan head, on a brownish amber murky hue. Light prunes, toast, nuttiness, and a slight sweetness in the aroma. Flavor follows suit, and fruity raisins dominate but not in a bad way. Lighter body with subtle carbonation.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2012
Black, off white cover. Aroma is roasty, chocolate, possibly light dms. Taste is the same, the dms is still there it seems, but it is otherwise enjoyable.

LetsGoState (868) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2012
Appearance is small brown head and nearly black color. Aroma is a sweet coffee. Taste is coffee and chocolate with minimal bitterness. Overall it exceeded my expectations.
