Pours a dark brown color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger off-white head, some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some toffee notes. The taste is sweet, malty, with some toffee. Medium body, kinda crisp/smooth. Drinkable, not a bad brew.

On tap at the downtown brewpub in Salt Lake City, Utah. Pours a beautiful dark reddish brown hue with a huge light brown head. The aroma is full of roasted malts and some light fruit. The flavor was excellent; tons of malt here, roasted and full. A nice fruity flavor, sweet but not too sweet. Some light hops and a very nice full and creamy mouthfeel round it out. Just an excellent beer. I wish this was bottled so I could ship some out. Squatters kicks ass.

Draft pint at the brewpub. It’s schwarz alright! This is a beauty with a full, sticky head. Sweet malty aroma. Nice tight black malt flavors ... solid, solid malt with a nice little Teutonic hop bite to finish it off. Among the better Schwarz’s I’ve head in a while, think this would go toe-to-toe with Kostritzer. (#2791, 4/12/2007)

This one was a free sample at the brewery. It was a lovely dark brown color, but by the time I got it there was no head to speak of.

The aroma was of rich malt, and was quite sweet. Much more so than I would have expected for a schwarzbier, but it was pleasant.

The taste was of very strong, roasted chocolate malt. Very nice. I enjoyed this one.
