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!

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2005
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.

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.

3.3
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.

3.7
AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 12, 2005
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.
