I've had this both on-tap and in bottle. Oddly, at least for me, the bottle is better than the on-tap version. The bottle was better by a lot, too.
A--It pours a deep, dark brown with a medium head that doesn't leave much lacing. Looks pretty good.
S--Oh, yeah there's something good going on here. It's sweet & malty. Can't wait to taste it.
T--Sweet, with a ton of fruitiness. Finish is a bit dry/tannic. Simply tastes good, although that's not as descriptive as this site usually generates. But good is good, regardless.
M--Smooth & easy going. It'll go down easy.
O--Just a step below excellent. Still , "pretty damn good" is pretty damn good. I'd give it two thumbs up, especially at its reasonable price. Still finding it hard to believe that I preferred the bottle to the draught, though.

A- cola/rootbeer type of look to it. Minimal head and ok lacing. Nothing exciting.
S- roatsed dark malts but no hop presence in the nose. it tends to be confusing because i am not getting an dominate scent.
F- caramelized sugar and molasses is what i get but i tastes like i am drinking a root beer with alcohol and dark malts mixed in.
M- smooth and light on the creamy side. It is nice gulper.
O- interesting and different. I dont beleive i have ever had a schwarzbier do i cant rate it accurately.

A - I love a good dark beer, and this one doesn't disappoint. Thin white head that disappeared quickly (sadly) but a deep blackened amber body helps to keep my attention.
S - Unlike a lot of dark beers I drink which have powerful odors, this doesn't really have any smell at all. I'm not sure if it's just because it was really cold or what, but no matter how hard I try to find anything scent to follow, I just can't find anything.
T - Tastes surprisingly good for having no smell. Tastes kinda like dark bread, maybe some molasses, and I can taste a little funk from the hops, but nothing overwhelming. Great session beer, but don't go in expecting anything deep.
M - Watery but smooth, and not washed-out feeling. Like a generic macro beer.
O - Not bad. A unique brew if anything, a gimmick if you will. Don't get me wrong, it's a good beer, but I would've hoped a little more character could be in a unique beer such as this. Regardless, SBC still has yet to disappoint me, so keep it up guys!
