Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Ive seen this on the shelves here for quite awhile now, and finally picked some up last week. 12oz bottle poured into a stemmed lager glass. Pours a deep black, like a stout. Small beige head on top that dissipates very quickly. Aroma of hot chocolate, dry husky grains, graham crackers. Easy subtle feel. Though this beer looks heavy, it is very light on the palate. Almost too easy to drink this one. Heavy-hitting roasted chocolate flavors present. Sweet mellow flavors meld with a dry cracker finish. Cereal grains on the back end. This little beer packs on the flavor. This is organic too? Nice. A nice little beer here. This is a style that is underrated in my mind, and one I need to revisit more and more. Cool label art to boot.

JPDIPSO (6171) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Dark brown color with a taller, lasting tan head. Aromas of dark roasted malt/black malt. Hints of dark cocoa, vanilla and peat. Not a powerful scent, one needs to search for a things. Fairly lifeless feel. Flavors of dark chocolate, dark roasted malts and some burnt sugar. Finish and linger are fairly dry. 2/12

oobawa (1192) - 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 (17266) - 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 (130) - 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 (4328) - 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.

[email protected]Haras, Tampere, Finland. Bitter, though slightly sweet aroma with berries and some coffee. Dark mahogny color with small light beige head and clear liquid. Medium, averagely balanced taste with lightly roasted malts, some butter cookies, dark chocolate. Narrow/medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with slightly bitter malts.
