Toasty, dryish, with some dark malt development. Could do with a little less carbonation.

"like a slightly sweeter, thinner porter. overall it was neat to try, but not something ill go back for. not a ton of hops, or body, but whats there is good enough.

dark clear ruby red, rich malt and floral hop aroma, rich malt flavor with a bitter finish, much more a bock than a stout

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 3, 2006
Can. Dark colour with a nice average lasting off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, hops and some coffee. The flavor is sweet with roasted malts, coffee, little chocolate ending with some bitter hoppiness. Good brew.

JPDIPSO (5991) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Clear near black liquid with a head that id fizzy and tan. Dry dark malt and tar flavors. A bit thin in feel, a bit to fizzy perhaps. Just a dark lager at best.

heemer77 (5327) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2004 A decent Schwarzbier. However, there was little to make this standout. Slight chocolate and coffee tastes. Cool steel can!

tmoreau (4013) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2016
22 oz. can poured to a pokal glass at Lunar Brewing Co. displaying a black/brown hue, with a frothy layer of tan foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was both roasted & toasted malt, subtle lager scent, a touch of woodiness, and light hints of prune & dark caramel. A little less than medium bodied, and somewhat dry, with fizzy effervescence that seemed to tone down midway through, after which the texture thinned a bit. Fairly solid, with decent drinkability. Resurrected as a U.S & Canadian product.
