Bottle. Dark cola pour with a big mocha head. Sweet bread, floral, caramel, cookie. Light body with light carbonation. Easy to drink. Not exciting but not offensive. Nice beer alobar (3800) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2014
Pours a dark chestnut brown with aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Caramel, roasted malt flavor with touch of grain and hint of bitterness. cazort (565) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark but somewhat transparent in the glass, not enough for me to call it black. Flat, with little carbonation. This beer doesn’t really taste much at all like a Pilsner to me. It tasted pretty generic, and if I hadn’t been able to see it, I might even guess it to be an amber ale. Quite sweet. Little to no roast in the aroma. Very malty, however, with a slight sourness to the malt. Weak hop presence. When I think Pilsner, I think light body, crisp hoppy bitterness, and a strong grassy malt. I get none of this. RateBeer classifies this as a "Schwarzbier" but I don’t really get that either...there’s not any roast evident in the aroma. I found this an unremarkable beer and would not drink it again. The sweetness and sourness were what really killed it for me...both were too much and made it a little unpleasant to drink, although I did finish it rather than pouring it out. I’d prefer a number of cheaper beers. DiarmaidBHK (4924) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2014
Draft at local Damon’s. Pours licorice with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. A bit of licorice malt on he nose. A bit thin on the tongue with some caramel malt forward on the tongue. Finishes with a touch of bitterness. Solid but not my favorite style. callmemickey (4543) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2014

Aroma of roasted malts. Light brown coloring with a small head and no lacing. The taste is a roasted caramel, sweet and slightly sticky. Easy drinking beer that would make a good session beer. reberiii (498) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Poured from 12oz bottle. Deep, dark in color, reddish brown if you hold it up to a light. Slight foam that dissipates quickly. Nose of roasty malt and molasses, it a bit thin on the tongue, but has huge sweet malt notes. Finishes with a hint of cherry and tingling hops.

12 ounce bottle that came in a trade with jdb288. This is dark amber with a beige head. A lot of carbonation rises up. I smell earthy malts but little else. Those are tasted, too along with some interesting hops that include noble varieties. The malts lead and are quite rich. This is a Pilsner? The hops have some grass and mild bitterness. A little cocoa and that defines the finish. A pils? Whatever it is it is interesting. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2013
