StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Medium, semi-translucent brown in color. Aroma is dry chocolate shavings and a faint trace of tiramisu. In typical flavor fashion, chocolate and roasted malts strive for attention in a gentle fashion. Pecans along with a hint of iced coffee come through to lick the palate as well. Light with low bitterness, and dry, as it should be. Nice, easy going, safe interpretation, yet a solid effort.

Wow, not quite sure what the difference is between this and a stout or porter. Big chocolate aroma and flavor. Very heavy in body which makes it difficult to handle after eating pizza. I got the 12oz of it which was a blessing in disguise. Not overly sugary like other Piece beers. Good after dinner beer but a session beer by no means.

Hazy dark brown body, minimal head. Nesquick chocolate and a light touch of black malt in the aroma. The flavor brings more milk chocolate and light acidic black roast. This stuff isnt watery just not punchy.

Did not really seem like a schwarzbier in my opinion. Poured dark brown with a thin head. Mild aroma, slightly sweet. Seemed very light, not one of Pieces best beers.

Draught: charred brown body with a nicely sized tan head. Roasted and toasted aroma with a bit of charred wood, burnt coffee, smoke, and chocolate malt. The black malt is actually dynamic: charred on one hand and freshly bitter on the other. Clean, crisp palate, drinkable and enjoyable in just one package. Nice.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Dark brown body that approaches black with a moderately sized brown head. Slightly roasted aroma of toasted grains, dark chocolate, light smoke, malt and a bit of licorice. A smooth, creamy body with subtle carbonation makes for an enjoyable drinking experience. The flavors are well assembled giving a nice balance to the various malt aspects. It seems to be rather well attenuated, leaving very little residual malt sweetness. Noble, earthy hops provide just a touch of bitterness at the end. A tasty interpretation of the style.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2007
12 oz pour at the brewery. Dark brown with a wispy head. Again, a light aroma that has lightly sharp grain with a hint of must and sweetness. The flavor is mostly malty with hints of sweetness and grain (roasted). Light molasses and/or brown sugar. Light medium body but the mouth feel is dull and unexciting on the tongue.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2006 pretty good. chocolate comes on strong well into the finish providing a nice surprise. perhaps a commentary on the style more than the beer, but this just made me want nitrogen carbonation. i guess a week after st. pats day thats an easy association to make... nevertheless a good tasting, solid beer. rerate... seemed like either a dopplebock dunkel or maybe a dubbel last night. super malty

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2005
A dark, sweet beer of indeterminate origins, this bastard child of backroom malt roasting followed close on the heels of Ooga Ooga!. Mild with a clean bitter finish. Chocolate malt balls detected, along with syrup-drenched nuts and some fruits.
