A nice Schwarzbier. Actually deep red in color. Left good lacing. Had a nice long sweet finish with some roasty-dryness too.

Nice color with a long lasting head. The taste and mouth feel were a bit thin but not bad overall.

JPDIPSO (6093) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 6, 2002
Blown color with just a touch of redness. Bone tan head. Mild hops and malt aroma. A dry caramel flavor with a touch of acidity. Dry finish toasty finish.

Coca-cola coloured, beige firm head. Hoppy aroma, cellar and soil tones. Bitter and sweet not much else

Outstanding coffee aroma with just as good a flavor. A bit thin for the flavor, but i think its for the better. Not to filling but a solid body. Feels like im in a cool damp...black forest.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - OCT 23, 2002
Sweet roasted malt aroma, but the flavor lacked the promise that the aroma gave. Light body, with just a hint of hops crispness. Easy drinking.

Reminded me of a black bavarian style beer. A lot of flavor and kick. Pretty smooth though.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2002
Very rich garnet color with a pronounced caramel malt aroma. Medium smooth body with a bit of bitterness. Not as much sweetness as anticipated, but still good.

Nice ruby-black hue. Tan head dissipates quickly. Caramel malt aroma. The sweetness is very welcome, and the hoppy finish is superb. I definately enjoy this schwarzbier, a very good rendition from a big brewery. One of Saranacs best brews.

My personal favorite in the Saranac line up. Odd moose brown to black color. solid caramel malt taste, but does lack a significant hop presence. I would like to see a little more chocolate character as well. A great beer with steaks!
