3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a decent sized khaki head that leaves some lacing. Aromas and flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, ash and roasted caramel. Body is too thin and watery with a slightly creamy finish. Overall a pretty standard Schwarzbier; nothing special but it gets the job done.
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 Appearance: deep jet but no head (contrary to other reviews?). Aroma: great aroma of roast malts, toffee and coffee. Palate: medium light mouthfeel. medium carbomation. Taste: great taste of coffee, roast malts. Hint of chocolate. light bitterness. Overall: Really liked this beer but would have scored it higher I think if it was more robust on the palate ANZUShophunter (653) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 31, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2017 From bottle in porter glass. Pours an opaque brownish black with thick head and choc malt aroma. Easy drinking with bittersweet choc finish. A nice after dinner beer, especially on Halloween Grumbo (4263) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2017

Ohh I like this beer! Pours black as, with nice foamy head. Easy on the palate (maybe a bit thin), but those malts!!! Nice smooth chocolate, toffee, vanilla and toast and zero or little bitterness to finish. This is a very easy drinking black beer with lots of taste - and smooooth! Ross1969 (11) - - JUN 22, 2017

Bottle in Seattle. My brother found this somewhere out East. Gray-tan head, nice dark malty body. Looks good. Nose is a touch sweet, but with some nice roast. Body is a bit creamy, some coffee, some dark bread. Body is muted, a bit waxy. Flavors are fine but a bit underwhelming. Some burnt licorice. Fairly nice.

Nice drinkable black beer. Good dose of chocolate, coffee, caramel and biscuit. A lighter dark beer, less creamy and more carbonation. Almost like a session dark beer.

330ml bottle. Coffee, plums, smoke, toast. Little creamy as it warms. Over carbonated. Not bad. GraemeL (37) - NEW ZEALAND - NOV 19, 2016
Dark colour, white creamy head, pleasant roasted malt aroma. Similar taste, smooth. Very enjoyable. LazyPyro (1798) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
330ml bottle. Almost black colour with a one finger creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma: light roasted malts, notes of dark fruits, coffee, chocolate. Taste: same as aroma. Texture is quite thin, as is the body. Not a bad beer but not outstanding in any way.
