From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #71 (December 2012):

Delicious comes to mind, maltiness is off the hook. Based off the Czech style Cerné Speciální (Special Dark) Full Sail delves deep into lager territory with this beaut. We are putting out vote in for this one to be promoted to year round status.

Pours dark chestnut brown with a medium tan creamy head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, notes of plum, roasty malt, mild cacao and espresso like bitterness. Taste the same as aroma. Palate is a medium body, rich and creamy with good carbonation and slightly sticky mouth feel. The finish is sweet sticky caramel malt, dark fruit, a nice chocolate and roasted espresso bitterness in the end for balance. A very rich and full flavored brew. Overall a good flavorful and tasty brew for the holidays

From notes.
12oz bottle purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane.

Poured a color somewhere between dark brown and ebony, taking on a rubyish shade when held up to light. Big, creamy tan head, that left lots of lace.

The aroma was of roasted malts, with coffee and cocoa notes. No hop notes stood out.

Coffee and cocoa flavors, in pretty much equal amounts, stand out more in the taste than in the aroma. Finishes clean.

Oily mouthfeel, which made for an odd bedfellow when paired up with the clean, lager finish.

Not terribly complex but still an interesting take on, I suppose, a schwarzbier. I would drink this again.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark brown color, with a large off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, lager yeast and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty roasted malt character and lager yeast. Then some sweet flavors of coffee and chocolate quickly follow. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly bready.

M: A little crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Pours an opaque brown/black with brilliant ruby highlights ave a frothy beige head that slowly dissipates.

Milk chocolate, lightly toasted malt, and nutty toffee form the initial aroma. Chocolate really dominates, with floral hops and a touch of diacetyl rounding out the finish.

Flavor reveals a huge backbone of sweet, nutty, toffee malt character, which finishes with a hint of slightly bitter roast. Underpinnings of dates, prunes, and figs add complexity. Chocolate is evident throughout, but does not dominate as much as in the aroma.

Body is fairly watery, which is exacerbated by carbonation that's a touch overdone.

Fairly complex malt character. The diacetyl complements the chocolate well. Probably cloyingly sweet to some, I enjoy the indulgence.
