Not a big fan of dark beers. But this one was very drinkable. Lots of malty sweetness smooth easy drinking. Would recommend. ozzy70 (1132) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 27, 2016
12 oz. can. Pour was black with a off white head. Aroma was sweet coffee, roasted malts. Taste was sweeter, fresh coffee, chocolate, malty, roasted grain. ordybill (1738) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is a pitch black color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is chocolate and coffee. The taste matches the nose. An excellent beer. sinfull (1633) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Black color. Medium-sized , beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and bread. Roasted malt dominate in taste . Moderate sweetness with some smoky notes. Roasted bitterness at the end. Very good.

Excellent. Dark pour effemeral tan head, slightly sour aroma but not taste. Palate is light/lagerish, flavor nice hint of nut+earth. Excellent beer

Pour was brown black, no head or lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and nuts. Flavor much the same, diluted, old milk chocolate and stale nuts. Mouthfeel was thin and undercarbonated. A miserable schwarzbier. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 29, 2016
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a dark brown almost black color with a thin white to off white foamy head that dissipated within a nice minute. Thin filmy to almost bubbly lacing glosses around the glass nicely.
The aroma has some grainy breadiness riding into a sly malted spice underneath, I want to say black pepper, but somehow, that even seems like a stretch, somewhat. I want to say it comes off a lil’ bit like freshly baked bread.
The flavor is grainy sweet with that spice coming back to make an effort to balance. Sly use of the bread flowing into the aftertaste and then into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium. Use of spice displays some harshness, but not overly done.
Overall, schwarzbier or just regular Euro black lager. I’d like to say Euro black lager, ’cause that’s some weird German yeast if that’s what they used. Maybe again, but nothing over the top. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Lots of sharp roast and some light coffee. Hint of raw barley. Black pout with great head and lacing. Light bittet finish. Tap at Black Squirrel. MaBeer1972 (2037) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Can from W&M Mansfield. Pours out a very dark ruby brown color. Lovely frothy tan head. Super roasty aromas and flavor. Almost smoky. Nice chocolate and coffee notes. Body on the thin-to-medium side. Very smooth and drinkable. This is excellent! AbbeyRoade (547) - Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Highly sessionable 4% black lager here. Great full roasted malt flavor with light coffee/chocolate notes. A little bit of a spritz w/caramel flavors that emerge to balance sweet with dry character from the hops.
