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.

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.

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.

3.8/5 rDev -2.1%
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.

I had this on tap at CCB during a business trip to Tampa. I'm in Tampa a few times a year and love stopping in to sample the latest and greatest.
Poured a black with ruby highlights and a tan head. The notes upfront emphasize roasted malts.
The hightlight of this was the toasty malts mixed with a touch of Munich malt. This was all followed by a bitter chocolate finish with a hint of residual sweetness. The carbonation made for easy drinking.
A nice schwarzbier and a good choice for session drinking.

A: quarter finger tan head with decry lacing on a dark black body with no light passing through.
S: roasted malt and light coffee but overall the aroma is mild.
T: Mild coffee and roasted malt with semisweet finish.
M: this one is incredibly smooth. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation.
Overall this beer is very drinkable and smooth with just the right amount of roast and coffee flavor to be flavorful and appealing to even those who aren't coffee lovers.

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.
