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 (7400) - 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.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Black, thick tan creamy head. Interesting nose on this with prominent notes of sweet coffee, cola nut, and molasses, with touches of dark bread scattered within. Flavor is similar with sweet coffee, cola, and more molasses. Light touches of chocolate play out upon warming, with a very light hop bitterness that cuts into the malt sweetness ever so slightly. Light to medium bodied, soft smooth carbonation, lightly sweetened finish. Not bad, not great...

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2005
750 ml bottle. Pours opaque black with a thick tan head. Not very aromatic. Hints of coffee and licorice in the first taste. A bit thin given the dark color and frankly a little disappointing.

Dark, a little roasty. A little thin but still enjoyable, esp. from Brazil....

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured opaque brown-black with a reddish hue, a small foamy-fizzy light brown head. Aroma was dark roast malt, resiny sourish red wine, some licorice, chocolate and raisin notes. This one’s pretty flat and thin on the palate, very mild roast malt and some tart prune juice, no detectable alcohol or hops - interesting, but way too mild.

barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2005
bottle picked up at Piccadilly’s in Champaign. very dark pour with a creamy tan head. mildly sweet with some anise/licorice notes. subdued flavors lead to a very easy drinking beer, but for a schwartzbier its just too mild.

SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Aroma is faint and resembles a dark lager but some small malt will come through. Nearly opaque, although its real just a dark brown. Thin coating og head created but diminished in a couple of minutes. The flavor is semi sweet and bitter with a much more noticeable presence of the malts again. Somewhat roasty and smooth, but i feel its unbalanced. I’ll admit, i did think this was suprisingly a decent beer considering the thought that it was imported from the southern Americas.
