3.48/5 rDev -10.3%
Poured from tap into a TBC Pint.
Color: Black with a brown head.
Smell: Coffee, hops and roasted malts.
Taste: Dame as the aroma. Coffee, hops and roasted malts.
Mouthfeel: Great carbonation, coarse and mid dry on the palate.
Overall: A fine black lager but I wasn't blown away by any means. A nice thick body and balanced well. Did have a nice rich coffee taste. A sipper for me. Cheers.

Poured into a snifter. Growler was bought at the Cigar City tasting room.
A- Pours a hefty opaque black with a 3/4 inch head that soon becomes a 1/4 inch ring around the edge of the glass with light surface foam and some sticky lacing.
S- Smells sweet like honey and molasses with some brown sugar in the end. Hints of spice come through as well.
T- Coffee upfront with roasted spice (Nutmeg?) accompanying. Crisp and fresh which makes it easy to drink but doesn't skimp on flavor. The unique sweetness in this beer makes me sip and sip and sip and sip.
M- A bit dry and thin but not detrimentally so. Medium carbonation.
O- Only the second Schwarzbier I've had that I remember liking. I'm beginning to have more respect for CC's lower ABV offerings.

Pours black brown highlights when held to light. Brown head falls pretty fast, not much in the way of lacing.
Aroma nice toasted malts hints of chocolate, nice nutty notes with caramel hints and a bit of earthiness.
Taste is great toasted malts again lots of nutty notes, hints of coffee and light chocolate with some caramel backing it all up. Finish is earthy with some light hops.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side on par with style sporting nice peppy carbonation that suites this brew well.
Overall enjoyable malty treat that's light but favorable a good brew for sunny afternoon on the porch in Florida.

Looks like a schwarzbier, black with an off white head that is a little too thin and lacing is ok.
The aroma has roasted background with coffee and cocoa hints, molasis and some spice.
Quite sweet for the style but enjoyable. Molasis and brown sugar with burnt edges and roasted flavors. Spicy notes and some cocoa.
A little thick for the style, smooth
Overall a little out of style and sweet. OK though.

From tap to tasting glass at The Funky Buddha Lounge on 6/2/12
A: This one's reasonably dark and pretty clean brown. A minimal tan head and thin collar top this small glass of beer.
S: Medium roast coffee, tea leaves and milk chocolate.
T: Dry autumn leaves. A bit of dusty cocoa and dry malt round out the flavor profile.
M: The feel is decent if not slightly thin. Overall the texture, body and such are a bit better then just ok.
O: A decent stab at a Schwarzbier. I can't say it's one I'll spout off about at my next tasting, but I'd probably have a couple if offered.

Review from notes at World of Beer - Fort Myers on 11/19/11.
Poured on draft into a shaker pint.
Appearance: Pours a dark cola brown with a 1/2 finger grey-tan head. Nice lacing.
Smell: Dark brewed coffee and toasted malt with a touch of sweetness.
Taste: Toasted malt up front followed by earthy hops and a German grainy quality in the middle before ending with a lightly sweet finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-to-full-bodied with good carbonation. Very thick for a beer with 5.5% ABV.
Drinkability: Good drinkability. You could have a few without much difficulty.
Overall: Good beer overall. Not Cigar City's best beer by far, but it's still worth a shot.

A - Dark brown beer with a creamy head that was kind of brownish-white in color.
S - Roasty with some brown sugar and a touch of honey.
T - Not a bad tasting beer. Some nice German influence with some nice roasted/toasty malts. There is an earthy quality to it and a slight touch of spice.
M - Medium bodied with lighter carbonation.
O - Pretty easy to get down, solid flavors, could do more than a couple. Wouldn't mind this one again.
