Draft. Aroma of faint coffee grounds. Flavors are gentle mocha and vaguely sweet coffee. What's extraordinary is the mouthfeel which is marshmallow, kind of like drinking down. Really nice. beastiefan2k (4115) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 Draft at Bottleworks. Regular and dull. Not enough black malt for me mineral dark malts lagered. Either a little sweet or not sweet enough. wchesser (2144) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2017
Draft at Fire on the Mountain Denver over GABF. Dark brown. Nose is bready rye malts, dark roast. Taste is dry fairly clean with rye bread and chocoat malts. Capa (3493) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Black. Light roasted malt. A hint of chocolate, faint burnt malt. Medi body. Very easy drinking with a good amount of character. Sessionable for sure. vyvvy (6775) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2015
On tap at the brewpub - Pours tawny brown with a beige head. The aroma has nuts, toast, crackers and spice. It has a medium / light crisp body with minor bite and low carbonation. The flavor is roasty, toasty, bready and spicy. The finish has dark caramel and dry toast.

A: Mahogany body with a brown edges, off-white head, and some lacing.
N: Cocoa, caramel, some coffee, roast, and a touch of vanilla.
T: Roast, malty body with a decent bitterness.
M: Light body, prickly carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Good schwarzbier. Perhaps doesn’t compare to the best of the style, but it’s clean, roasty, and enjoyable.
On tap at pFriem. Colour...clear, dark ruddy-brown with a massive white head. Nose...bready, doughy and malty with notes of dried fruit. Palate...full, frothy and with a light bitter toastiness that resembles slightly burnt rye bread. The mid palate has some cola notes and toasted malt to go with a buttered biscuit flavour. The finish is clean with notes of toasted hazelnuts. pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 31, 2014

On draught at pFriem Family Brewers. Nut brown color. Aroma is nuts, caramel, and a touch of smoke. Taste is similar, with some toffee notes also. Good nutty, sweet, smokey finish. beersearcher (2383) - Glendale, California, USA - AUG 31, 2013
My least favorite of the taster tray. But that is just because the other beers were so damn good. This is a solid dark brown schwarz with a touch of smoke. Great taste at such a low ABV.
