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.

On tap at Fox Cities Brewfest. Pour was dark with an aroma of chocolate roasted wheat and light coffee. Blend was nice with a light body and flavors of yeast, dry wheat, light chocolate, and a touch of roasted characters. Good brew. Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Pours a reddish-brown with a large foamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel and nutty malts. Taste is about the same with a bit of chocolate and smokiness. Quite drinkable. akoeninger (766) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2016
