bigtaster (1033) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Black with almost completely opaque, not much head, but off white and around the edges of the glass. Nose has small hint of licorice, strong dark fruit, odd aroma, something that I haven’t smelt often. Light body, very sweet, light malt spread across the palate. Odd, but good beer.

GregMooreNH (165) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 30, 2017
Pours black with a medium, dark head that lingers. Aroma is dried fruit and brown sugar. Taste is molassas and slight plum. Finish is slightly acidic. A drinkable, though not particularly exciting schwartzbier.

beer_rookie (684) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 16, 2017
Pours a very black color. One finger brown head. Okay retention, okay lacing.

Aroma is malts, raisins, and that's about it. Hops, where?

Taste is watery. Malty, light raisin.

Mouthfeel is light and very watery. Very drinkable. Not bitter at all.

Overall, it's okay. Not amazing. I probably wouldn't recommend it nor buy it again.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Ziemlich schwarz mit viel Schaum. Eher süßlich statt der erwarteten Röstaromen

gripweed57 (2918) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2017
From old tasting notes. Opaque black, brown with a bubbly brown head. Sweetish roasted malt aroma, reminiscent of burnt caramel. Initially, a sweet roasted malt flavor that becomes bittersweet and then finishes somewhat dry like a London Stout. Nice lacing.

12 oz bottle from Total Wine. Almost black with reddish undertone. Dark fruit aroma, malty dark fruit taste, sweet malt finish.

One of the few beers I would call DELICIOUS! A great first taste...that lasts.
