Draft. Dark brown pour. This is a black ipl. Whatever noble hop prob tett they over did it. Tastes kinda like roasty chocolate orwnge juice. Its not terrible but nowhere close to style guidlines. JaBier (8112) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2017

Dark brown with a creamy tan head.
Earthy, lactic, "brown" aroma....
Rich, oddly woody/earthy chocolate malt taste...
It’s just...different...the whole package...
Put me in mind of rich dirt, but in a good way....like the aroma, the flavour is best described as "brown"....

Pour on tap at the brewpub, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of roast, cocoa, some caramel into a bit of yeast, bread, some toast with a touch of grass. Taste was a mix of grass, earth, some yeast into toast, roast, some cocoa, touch of grain, finishing slightly roasted, slightly sweet.

On tap @ the brewpub. Dark brown, copper highlights. Chocolate, dark roast, and grains, a touch of coffee. Spot-on for style. shrubber85 (11506) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2015
Draft. Herbal woody chocolate malt aroma. Black with small tan head. Sweet earthy lactic chocolate malt flavor. Decent body. Good - a very unique schwarzbier. b3shine (9014) - Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2015
Draft to taster. Looks good; a lightly translucent very dark dull cola with foamy lighter beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and mild notes of roast and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel. A good example of the style. tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2014
