Bottled. A red- brown beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma has notes of straw and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, adn caramel, leading to a dry finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

12 oz bottle pours a clear dark crimson brown with a one-finger tight beige head and good lacing. Aroma is campfire smoky with lots of roasted malts, beef jerky, and perhaps some dark fruits. Tastes sweet with a smoky, woody finish. Body is medium with light carbonation. I grew up near the Schells brewery, and this is my current favorite from New Ulm..

Aroma: has some malt sweetness, dash of spice with a smoky aroma and maybe anise. Appearance: pours black with a good head and lacing. Taste: malty with noticeable but subdued hops, chocolate and a smoky/meaty(?) flavor. Palate: well balanced but a bit syrupy- very pleasing. Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. Not something I would drink all the time but it is certainly on my list of favorites.

Smokey and sweet-malty aroma. Dark crimson color. Tastes sweet and smokey with a very smooth sweet finish. Lingering smoked malt flavor is pleasant and not too aggressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Enjoyed this last night. Aptly named for its dark color. Poured smooth with a minimal brownish head. Great compliment to my charbroiled filet. Great experience.

Kinda smokey, not like an ashtray, more like a fire pit. Not too thick, good for a cold night. I like.

A refreshing run of the mill schwarzbier; a style I dont visit very often. Aroma was roasted malt and that typical lager aroma. Pour was a nice dark brown with red hues and a one finger off white head. Taste was very spritzy. Strong carbonation bites the mouth with roasted malt and lager taste are left after the swallow. A little one dimensional, but a decent beer. Could benefit from a little stronger flavor.

Dark brown color with 2 fingers of light brown head. Aroma is smokey and slightly sweet. Abundant smokey flavor with some malt and coco flavors. Not too thick and smooth texture. Interesting beer but not something I would want more than one of.
