I rather enjoyed this beer for being smooth and have a nice mix of darker roasted malts in the beer. But make no mistake, this is not a stout. It is light on burnt malts. Not overly hoppy, a little chocolate. Thin in the mouth. Headbanger (4021) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2008
UPDATED: APR 22, 2014 Bottle-A light black body with a small head and an aroma of roastee malt. Taste farly light compared to the aroma. Not a bad beer. RSRIZZO (2032) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Had this beer on 9/15/1999. Color is a deep dark brown with a nice tight head. Taste is lighter than it looks . Finishing with a creamy roasted malt flavor. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

black, funky malt flavor, balancing bitterness,
Aroma: 5/10; Appearance: 5/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Not a great beer at all. Even though this is a schwarzbier/dunkel and it's supposed to be thin, it isn't supposed to be THIS thin. Further, this brew lacks flavor (at least the good kind). There is a chalky, medicinal flavor to Black Knight that makes for a real disappointment.

I'd rather have a cup of cold coffee than try this again!................... Panzuriel (2371) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Aroma is reedy and slightly sharp. Color is a beautiful Deep Ruby Black. First taste is very green, fading to a metallic aftertaste. Finishing the bottle rounds out to a disappointing experience. K-V-F-L (291) - LaVista, Nebraska, USA - OCT 18, 2001
Solid layering. Flavor disappears quickly; a shame because a good maltiness is present initially. Nothing to get really excited about. jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2001
Somewhat sweet malt aroma, ok head, some crystal malt evident, not much of anything really, its not horrible, just not very interesting.
