sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2013
12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Translucent black; one-finger light tan head dissipates into a medium ring. Aroma malt, nutty, a little sour, toasty, light roast and very light smoke. Flavor malty, toasty, dry finish. Medium body, lighter carbonation but pretty smooth in that department. Not my style but good for what it is.

oobawa (1102) - Tennessee, USA - APR 27, 2017
Solid schwarzbier from Uinta, offering up a surprising depth of rich, roasty malt flavor for such a low-ABV brew. Modest mocha notes combine with a deep smoky undercurrent, leading to a stout-leaning back end with hints of raisin and anise. Finishes dry with a mild bitterness. Textures good if a bit slight, and the nose is on point, full of rich espresso and smoke.

TBone (17082) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottled 355ml (BB 05/2017, K-Supermarket Isolinna)
Dark brown color, medium-sized beige head. Aroma has light aromatic hops, bread and caramel with light tartness and cooked vegetables. LIght-bodied. Bready, light acidic tartness, vegetables. Gone bad.

mviljamaa (104) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - APR 13, 2017
Pours with a lot of bubbly light brown foam. Color is black. Inviting aroma has hot chocolate, cappuccino, lemon candy, licorice. Palate is light and fairly balanced with airy carbonation. Taste has sour fruity notes, sour beer -like notes, a hint of pink grapefruit, lemon soda, some bitterness from hops. Very refreshing. A surprising lager that doesnt taste like lagers Ive had before. Its more like an IPA mixed with brown ale mixed with sour/fruit beer. Definite "will buy again".

thegreenrooster (4290) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Pour is a black with some brown highlights around the edges. Aroma is a nice roasted malt with chocolate notes. Flavor is a little thin bodied but there is a nice roasted malt with some ashy dryness after the swallow. A little thin all around but probably the most flavorful 4% Ive had.
