hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2010
Deep reddish brown body with a thin but clinging beige head. Light yet inviting aroma. Caramel, nuts, malt. I thought the palate was a bit thin but smooth. The flavor is excellent. Caramel and brown sugar tempered only slightly by a crisp fruit finish. Highly drinkable!

Kleg (159) - The Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Draft. Pitch black pour with a small beige head and good retention. Great lacing. Smooth and very dark roasted malt with no coffee flavors. Really good.

ebone1988 (1703) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Aroma is caramel, dark fruit, leather, sweet, roasted malt. Appearance is dark brown, light tan head, slightly hazy. Taste is caramel, dark fruit, roasted malt, cereal, leather, bland, uneventful. Mouthfeel is might body, almost non-existent carbonation, dark fruit and leather aftertaste. Overall, eh. Pretty much what I expected, nothing special.

19Oracolo78 (156) - ITALY - MAR 6, 2017
Birra dal colore scuro tonaca di frate. Schiuma fine e persistente. All’olfatto sentori di malto tostato e caffè. Al palato corpo medio con note di cioccolato amaro, caffè e malto tostato. Nel finale rimane amara. Una buona birra.

Swing top bottle. Dark brown to black color. Nearly opaque. Cloudy. Rocky head. Pleasant aroma, chocolate, roasted grain, biscuity malty. Flavor similar to a Munich Dunkel. Rich chocolate, roasted grain, medium body. Dark malt. Nice. Creamy mouthfeel.

Milter (810) - Nyborg, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2017 Ganske god mørk øl. Tilpas med sødme i smagen. Flot mørkt øl. Savner noget bitterhed.

Airlifter (134) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Draft at the Flying Saucer, KC. Pours almost black with a little bit of off white head. First taste was sweet with a bit of bourbon and molasses flavors. Shortly after that my taste buds were set on fire by the San Miguel burger I had with the beer. A good beer that I need to try again without the spicy food to accompany it.

McGarnigle (636) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2017
One of those nice ceramic top bottles, scratched up a bit to begin with (re-use, not recycled). This is a decent enough schwarzbier, dark, malty and thick on the tongue. On the sweet side. Very slight chocolatey roast. It’s lightness may be an issue for some, but that’s supposed to be OK for the style.
