Thanks goes to wasatch for this brew.

Poured into my pint glass the beer is dark blood red brown. With black edges. About a finger of khaki head fades slowly leaving a thin coating of lace.

The aroma is mostly roast malt and grain. A bit of dark fruit and coffee are picked out. Smells pretty much like a black beer.

The flavor is very nice. Roasted malt with hints of coffee and a touch of smokiness. Light bitter finish like burnt coffee and hops.

Light body with mild carbonation.

Overall a very nice black beer. Scharzbier are one of the few lagers I can get into and this one does not let me down. Right up there with the well know BB's.

A clean black beer with ruby highlights. Little or no head. Sweet malty notes in the aroma at first then a slow build of roasted malt character. The roasted malt bitterness gives a small bite on the tip of the tongue. Followed by a smooth wave of sweet malt notes full of caramel and toffee. The finish is full of bittersweet chocolate and coffee. Very smooth and easy to drink....nice.
Thanks John

This is Hoppers first bottled brew, I believe.

Pours a black color, some carbonation, little fizzy off-white head, with some minimal sticky lacing. The nose is malty, very slight hops, and some yeast notes, lots of toffee/caramel. The taste is slightly sweet, malty, fruity, with a nice touch of toffee/caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, a tasty brew, kinda surprised me.
