Had a sample as part of the epic 14-beer sample flight at the brewpub. I don’t normally like schwarzbier, but this was very good. It didn’t have much of what I don’t like (smoke), and was fruitier than average (they were low on time, so they fermented it as an ale). Refreshing. gnoff (11100) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2012
Sampled at GABF on Saturday October 13, first session Slegar (26) - Green bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Black color, brown head. Sweet, pop-corn scent. Sweet, malty taste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Light roasty, slight hop bitterness. Thin but not too thin. Once it warms a bit chocolate comes thru.

TAP at Titletown. Pour is black. Aroma of subtle coffee, chocolate, and malt. Taste is a bit sweet. Medium body. One of the better beers on their line-up. whitebear (41) - - APR 27, 2012
A dark shwartz clone. Tanish white head with a thick coffee and roastie taste. A tinge of alcohol.

Very clever name for this tasty schwarzbier! Pours a deep black and has a nice roasty aroma and flavor to it. arkurzynski (2461) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2011
On tap at the Old Fashioned. Dark brown/black. Light coffee/roasted malt, soft Munich-type malts, brown sugar, and toffee. Flavor is a slightly acidic roast-type flavor that doesn’t round out well. Fairly light on the palate with trailing mild roast finish. Madtown1 (13) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2011
On tap at the Malthouse here in Madison...the color was dark brown, almost black/brown. The head was off white and reduced rather quickly to a ring and film, but left some lacing on the glass. The aroma was roasted coffee and some chocolate notes too a lesser degree. The flavor was a smooth malt, a bit of sweetness, and mild bitterness coupled with a moderate roasty dry finish.

Dark black/brown pour in sampler glass. Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate. Coffee and chocolate flavors with a smooth finish. One of my favorites from my visit to Titletown. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Thirsty Troll Beer Fest. Pour is deep brown with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of chocolate and moderately roasted coffee beans. Flavor shows sweet caramel with more roasted presence and a touch of earthy hops. Pretty much no smoke to be found. As it warms there seems to be a hint of smoke, but it’s so faint that I could be imagining it. This was served way too cold and doesn’t much remind me of a schwarz, more like a thin porter.
