illidurit (2340) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 31, 2014
On tap at Sour Sunday at Triple Rock. Dark brown with a tan head. Funky fruity coffee aroma, like when you burn nice artisan coffee. Smokey, ashy, roasted flavor, lightly sour with an inky note throughout.

gyllenbock (9160) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2014
At Jupiter during Sour Sunday 2014. Almost black with a tan head. On the sweet side with chocolate, light roasted malt, grapefruit. The finish was quite dry and with some sourness. A descent one.

Sampled on tap at City Beer a few months ago. A nicely crafted brew that has heavy carbonation and lots of malts. A quality brew.

BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 10, 2013
On tap at FWIBF. Pours with a near black hued body and a tan head. Aromas are tart and lactic with some grainy notes, doughy and a whisp of roast. Flavors are tart, grainy, leathery and very clean. Lively carbonation, off dry, unique as are most of his beers.

rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Tap: black pour with medium-sized beige head. Aroma is smokey grain with toffee and molasses. Flavor is smokey with roasted grain, toffee, raisin, and a lightly tart cherry ending. A somewhat thick flavorful sipping beer, interesting...may have more.

marcus (10222) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 18, 2013
On tap at City Beer 7th Anniversary party. Pours dark brown with a decent tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a carbonated slightly sour black malt flavor with a dry finish. A bit livelier than most schwarbiers, still quite tasty.

3.7
oRos (1675) - sacramento, California, USA - MAY 18, 2013
On tap at city beer pours black with off white head. Taste starts out with lots of malt and ends with a slight funk sour.

3.7
brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Almost black in color with a tan head. Nose is rather fruity, sort of has a plum and raisin aspect to it. Nice roasted malt, coffee, a slight acidity, and a bit of chocolate. Sweet flavor at first with toffee and dark fruit notes. The finish is lightly bitter and a bit tart/acidic. Nice coffee and roasted malt with a light chocolate note.

4.2
Aquilo (651) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Black with a thick foamy head. Aroma is coffee, toffee and pecans. Flavor is dry at first, but sweet in the finish. Smooth mouthfeel. This is an excellent beer.

3.6
badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 31, 2013
On tap. Very dark brown to black with a fizzy tan head. Sweet roasted grain and light chocolate flavors up front with a light citrus tartness on the back end with a crisp clean finish and a slightly oily medium bodied palate.
