TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Sampler on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice darker brown with dark amber! Lighter edges, opaque middle, decent light offwhite head with a ring on the edges. Aromas are mellow, light caramel and toffee mix in with light earthy hops, small with biscuits. Initial is biscuits, toffee, lighter bodied with nice sweetness, light hops. A pretty nice darker lager, quite drinkable with nice sweetness, light hops. Nice

tmoreau (4743) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Mug served at the brewpub bar with a dark brown appearance and light ruby tones showing through. The head was a modest, off white to light tan with fair cling to the lacing. Everything about this beer was light. In the aroma, there was very subtle German malt scent, roasted notes as mocha and hints of sweetness and caramel. The flavor was similar, adding some low bitterness to the somewhat thin body. Subtly dry was the finish. A no frills, sessionable, black lager.

illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 25, 2009
Draft at brewpub. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Flavor of chocolate powder, nuts, caramel, and perhaps a tad amount of tobacco. Just enough bitterness to keep it in balance. Smooth finish. Not bad. Solid

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2009
aroma of light roast. flavor of cola and iced coffee. some sweetness but not overpowering. soft mouthfeel with some sizzle from hops. very controlled sweetness for the style makes this a winner.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Growler. Poured a clear dark brown color with dark orange highlights. The head was tan. Smelled of unsweetened chocolate brownie with hay and nut accents. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet. I tasted hints of molasses, caramel apple, grass, and lightly roasted nuts. It’s a Schwarzbier,

Lubiere (14240) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2009
A clear copper ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, a nice caramel malt, light molasses note. In mouth, a rather light schwarzbier, with light sweet caramel, very thin. So-so. On tap at brewpub, May 18 2009.

DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 27, 2008
(10/10/08) Draught at the brewpub in Chicago. Dark brown with no head. Malty aroma with some diacetyl and some caramel. Sweet and malty flavor with some butterscotch, toasted notes and some caramel. Some metallic hints in the finish. Medium-bodied. Not great.

3.4
puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Tap at the brewpub. Dark brown, filtered, almost no head. Aroma is muddy and vegetal, easy drinking, with some molasses, salt, caramel in the flavor. Not bad.

3.3
Aurelius (5654) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Rootbeer-looking in color, clarity and head. Ceral lager aroma. Deep, dark grainy malt flavors - sweetish - without much roast. A little chemical on the backend.
