This poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Aroma was of earthy hops, toasty malt, light chocolate. Flavor was similar, nice noble earthy hips, balanced toasted malt, light smoke. Great schwartz. TylerGreenDC (929) - - JAN 29, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2016 Draft. Imagine a packet of cocoa being thrown onto your tongue, and that it quickly dissolves. That, with a bit of coffee thrown in, is this beer. jackfrost9p (338) - California, USA - DEC 28, 2014
This is very good. I really liked it. Smooth, light, crisp with a nice roastedness. slowrunner77 (11912) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
"not super impressed with this one. got it by mistake (next to the mirror mirror tap) so the potential for a nice surprise was there, but it was a bit of a bastard. too hoppy and bitter for the style. nothing offensive, and nothing that stood out."

Enjoyed at FWIBF 2014... Dark brown in color... Nutty aroma... Flavor is nutty malts, caramel... Boring brown lager

Pours black with a tan head. Chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and toffee aroma and flavors. Medium body and carbonation with a chocolate and roasted finish. AirForceHops (7129) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Draft at Toroando, SF. Pitch black color, thin head in a 6/oz. Glass. Aroma is dark charred malt with a big earthy hop note. Nice flavor of charred malt, hints of coffee and a lingering "over hopped" bitterness. Well, over hopped for the style. More hoppy than the true German style but still, tasty and well made. adnielsen (10601) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2014
On tap in Santa Rosa. Dark brown appearance with a light brown head. Roasty nose with some light smoke and coffee. Hint of diacetyl. Kind of nutty, caramel, roasty flavor. Light butterscotch. This batch seemed a little dirty but I’m sure it could be a good beer. dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Draft. Pours coffee color with small tan head. Aroma is smoke, coffee, roast, mellow bitter chocolate, orange zest. Taste is toasted grain, cocoa, light coffee notes, earthy hops, light sourness, lingering hop bitterness. Big fan. thome50 (1294) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Tap at FWIBF. Pours a deep brown with pink/red/brown lacing head. Aroma is scotch, brownie and some ash. Taste is slightly smokey with hints of chocolate and candy corn. Light mouth feel which detracts though this is only 5%.
