3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow. Scharzbier was one style I never thought I’d be blown away by, but leave it to Port Brewing to prove me wrong! Fantastic sessionable beer that doesn’t TASTE sessionable. Aroma was alright. There was mostly chocolate and grain smells but they didn’t jump out of the glass. Pour was a lovely deep dark brown/near black with a one finger tan head. Taste was very full and delicious. Strong hit of chocolate and bitter roasted malt at first contact. Some coffee flavors came out as the beer warmed and added another dimension of complexity. Nice strong carbonation wash the flavors out of the mouth and leaves some light bitterness. Delicious beer!
From May 2008
I bought this bottle from South Bay Drugs & Liquor. Thanks Joey!
Ahh, a Schwarzbier..I haven't too many of them...
It pours a very dark brown, almost black, actually. A nice 1 finger head of tannish foam and some nice lacing. Nice looking brew. The foam shrinks to just a ring around the glass a few minutes into the session.
Taking a few whiffs, I get a very bitter chocolate smell matched by a very roasted malt nose, and it's nice.
The taste..well...it's damn tasty! A lot of roasted malt and chocolate up front and then some coffee notes sneak in and in the background, I taste just a touch of citrus. Yummy. Now I'm getting some smokiness that I didn't expect. Dang. 5%abv, eh? Plenty of flavour here. ;^)
It has a light body , which I expected, the carbonation is fairly brisk, also expected, and it finishes with a bitter bite from the roasted and dark chocolate malt. A very nice and quite bitter brew. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Poured from a 25 OZ bomber into a pint glass. The appearance is midnight black with a medium sized tan head. Rich malt aroma with a hint of coffee. The taste is pure malt goodness with a mild finish. Saeglopur (2415) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 3, 2016
650 ml bitte shared by Werckmeister, thanks!

Black body, with a quite small, fizzy, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of coffee, liquorice, toast, dried fruits, some cocoa powder.
Taste follows this, with quite a lot of sourish fruits and some caramel.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium roasty, medium sour-fruity, with cocoa, some coffee, some liquorice.
Nice one, but not oustanding. A bit light bodied for the style and with some unusual sourish fruits, that aren’t bad though. Overall not among my favourite style examples, while still a nice one.
0,66l bottle at home from Ex-De Molen webshop. No BB date. As Port Brewing Midnight Sessions Lager 5% ABV. almost black color, small coffee-colored head. smells earthy, lightly acidic, light berry notes, hints of smoke, light vanilla, some bitter chocolate, light licorice. nice smell. medium body, rather bubbly carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes citric, earthy, lightly sour, light vanilla, some licorice, light green apples. finishes lightly sour with notes of green apples and some earthy notes. overall good, but dont like the sourness (especially on the taste) on this one. Might be that its too old, but its a bit distracting from the otherwise good beer. dfearnley (2405) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015
