From notes taken 02/28/17:

Clear cola color with reddish hues, with solid, creamy, foamy fine-bubbled beige to toasty brown head of good retention. Nose is roasty, smokey, dark chocolatey goodness. Palate of somewhat sweet soil, roast, wood smoke, old coffee, toffee, with retro-olfaction of smoke and light peppercorn. Good balance, can’t even distinguish the hops from the pleasant bitterness that comes from toasty qualities. Lighter medium body, abundant fine and soft carbonation, fairly high astringency but it works well with the lighter body. One of the better Schwarzbier’s I’ve had. I generally prefer Euro Dark Lagers.

This pours a coffee cola black with nice foam. Big roasty aroma, lightly bodied with a dominant roasty malt. Easy drinker, nothing stands out to rave or diss.

Can from my old buddy Brian. Pours a super dark cola color with a tan head. The smell is roasted dark malt, some molasses, coffee. The taste is as it smells with some dark fruit lingering as well then a dry roasty ending. The body is light with about average carbonation. Pretty decent overall and at 4% it’s a sessionable.
