Dark brown, thin head. Nice choc, touch of lightness, still a mellow tartness on the finish. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
Draught at Darby’s Gastown, VancouverZlotta (3725) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 1, 2017
Dark, near black. Dry, lean, weak, with some roasted malt, some liquorice (it doesn’t fit at all in a weak beer), some cardboard.
Sampled from tap at FDDB 2017. Clear, dark brown to black with a medium large, frothy, quickly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of milk chocolate, nuts and caramel. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty taste of caramel, dark chocolate, coffee and some licorice, followed by a medium long, moderately roasty-bitter, slightly dry finish with some blackcurrant. Medium body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice! drpimento (3726) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2017
It’s not bad but it’s really not a schwarzbier which is first of all a lager. Aroma was mostly roasty toasty malt. Flavor was like nose was quite jockey and bitter and astringent. Okay for drinking but nothing special. Block (2950) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Dark pour, fluffy tan head. Aroma is sweet. Flavor is yeasty with dark malts. Bitter chocolate. Wet finish and a roasted aftertaste. Carbonated.

DandyWolfFloyd (1212) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Aroma - some alcohol and roast.
Appearance - the body is black. The head is beige and about 1 1/2", and settles into a light foam.
Taste - light roasted malt, with a Belgian yeast quality.
Palate - body is medium, texture silky, carbonation is average, the palate surprisingly abrupt with just a bit of roast.
