A totally unremarkable black beer. Slight smokey flavor, chocolate, etc. It’s not overly sweet, which is nice

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle - first drank in 1995. The appearance is a jet black pour with a thin tan head. The aroma is molasses, prune, cola and a hint of licorice. Sweet molasses flavor coupled with ripe pit fruit, prune and all malt. Kinda like one every couple years.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours black with a thin brown head subsiding quick. Scent is medium dense toasted malt and notes of caramel. Taste is sort of Belgian ale? Dense properties of caramel. A little skunky and a little flavor of lime. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Pours a 1" tan head that falls slowly with mild lacing. Color is black with a reddish tint. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and toffee along with earthy hops. Medium mouthfeel with a mostly dry finish. Flavors of dark roasted malt, hints of coffee, chocolate, toffee. A lingering hop bitterness in the finish. Overall quite a pleasant and easy drinking brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark and opaque with beige foam. Smells of toasted malt and maybe some coffee and cocoa. The taste brings these out but with a thin body and light fizz. The finish is moderately dry. A good dark beer for a warm day.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Whole Foods, Lynnfield MA. Appearance is dark brown with mahogany, effervescent sparkle, and 1/2-finger width creamy head with nice retention and nice soapy lacing. Aroma is lightly roasted malt with dark fruit, noble hops, and hint of chocolate. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with thin, creamy texture, soft carbonation and crisp, dry texture. Overall, this is a pretty decent Schwarzbier. Not sure why rated so low.

Like dark layers and there is plenty of good chocolate roasted notes. Not my favorite though.
