WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Nice looking beer. Medium bodied and easy on the palate. Very creamy and richly flavored. Decent amount of roasted malts. Finishes with an anise/licorice flavor. Noticable chocolate and molasses flavors in the middle. This is a good beer as is, and I disagree with the others that it needs more flavor. It comes across in an original way and is okay as is.

One of the first non-BMC beers I ever had, roughly 18 years ago, at the sunset grill and tap, before it had *any* taps - old timers will remember, the younger crowd may not believe it. I finally tried it again the other night. A beer that helped lead me down the path of beer-hunting still proved interesting. Originally blowing me away with malt intensity now comes across my palate as well, balanced but still malt-forward, very creamy, with that mile anise bite. Very mellow.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - NOV 23, 2005
An unoffensive beer. It tastes like the typical German Schwarzbier after which it is styled. Modest head, nice dark color. Clean tasting, the finish is omewhat lacking, flavors of chocolate and a little hint of maltiness.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2005
A very dark beer with a light tan head which lasted the whole beer. A faint spice aroma. Flavor is well balanced. Just the right amount of roasted malt flavor with a slight sweet finish. This is one smooth beer. I like it.

Creamy, mild, and very good. Very dark brown color, almost black. Head was tiny, dissipated quickly, and it’s flat.

thelandstander (45) - Davis, California, USA - NOV 15, 2005
Bottle. Poured a very dark brown. Very small, tan head, but good retention. Aroma of malts and coffee. Low carbonation. Flavor was a little underwhelming (much less than I expect from a black beer), but pleasant. Coffee and malt flavors with a nice finish. Good, but not great.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 14, 2005
pretty good, poured an opaque black body with a thin tan head which had great retention. aroma was malty with mainly a sweetness to it, but hints of roasted malts. Flavor was sweet with a uniquely bitter finish. it was a little light on the palate though.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - NOV 12, 2005
Pleasantly surprised by this. Pours an extremely dark, almost opaque brownish-black with a decent light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, a whiff of candy-like sweetness. Flavor is rich and malty, sweet with a dark earthiness to it. Enjoyable.

blankboy (7590) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2005
Bottle. Pours a bubbly very dark brown, almost black, with an average size foamy light-brown head. Very mild aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and licorice -- it smells nice but it’s way too mild. The flavour of sweet and roasted malt is also much too mild, there just isn’t much there. Medium bodied. This would be a great beer if they would just increase the aroma and flavour but as it is it’s too bland, making this just mediocre.

Dough77 (821) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Pours out a dark brown cola looking color, with a very slight ring of off white head around the brim of the glass. Nose is light on chocolate, roasted malt, and very slight sweetness. The sweetness gets a big old boost come tasting time though, and the chocolate turns more into cocoa powder than a milk chocolate bar. Goes down nice though. Not bad.
