Poured black with a great head and lacing.
Light roasty, coffee and malt aroma.
Flavor is the same as the aroma with a light -medium body.
This is a very good easy drinking beer. Very nice!

Draught @ DC: Dark brown that shows up as a clear amber when held to the light. It has a medium creamy white head. The aroma has some coffee, chocolate, light roasted malts, and a bit of toasted malt. The first taste shows a bit of toasted malt and chocolate, then the following sips show more roasted coffee and pale malts. Light-medium bodied, moderate carbonation. luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Sampled at the Broomfield, CO location. Beer was a clear, very dark ash-brown color with a small, mostly and quickly diminishing head. The aroma was malty with moderate notes of roasted grain, chocolate, light note of molasses; Hoppy with a moderate note of herb; Miscellaneous notes of trace smoke, aspen bark, light notes of licorice and coriander. The flavor was moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic with a short, lightly sweet finish. The body is light, the texture was watery and the carbonation was lively.

Dark, roasty, light body, a little sweetness. Overall, pretty good schwartzbier. The convo with Nick was even better. dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2009
on tap at location in Washington, DC. Nice dark color with mild nose. Good overall roasted flavor, light, slightly sweet, and smooth. Finishes slightly bitter. beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2009
On tap-Annapolis location-Poured black w/a tan, carbonated head. Sweet roasted aroma. Flavors of roasted malt, nuts, a little caramel; had a lot of carbonation to it. This is not one of my favorite styles, I just find them to be too muddled-I prefer more traditional dark beers like a porter or stout, but this was a good beer for this style.

Decent brew on tap at the restaurant in SF. Very smooth, nice and malty. Lots of roasted character. Nice full body with a smooth finish. Solid schwarz.
