Pours black like used motor oil with a beautiful tan head that has good retention.

Smells of crystal malt, bitter herb, raisin and plumb.

A nice touch of caramel malt up front with notes of raisin and plumb. Finishes with some bitter herb hop and alcohol tannins.

Poured into a pint glass. Clear brown, dark cola color on the pour. There was only a thin light tan head despite a fairly vigorous pour. What appeared actually stayed for a while. The nose was full of roasty malt and nutty smells. Also a funny, slightly tart smell that became more prominent as the beer warmed. No diacetyl or funkiness. The taste ts all dry roasted malt, with dark bread, toast a bit of charcoal and bitter coffee. As expected, no chocolate flavors at all. Dry, clean finish. Medium-bodied and lightly carbed.

Have had this beer both on tap at the brewery and in a bottle at home. It is much better at the brewery in their beer-garden. This is a very dark Black Lager listed as in the style of a German Schwarzbier. The taste is lighter than a stout but heaver than a porter. Flavor is roasted malt with a slight nutty taste. An excellent session beer.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into an Altamont glass.
4.25/3.5/3.75/3.5/3.25
Shiny black. Opaque with no head.
It smells sweet and wheaty, tinged with fruit. No roast.
Intriguing. It doesn't taste very schwarzbier-y. Very little discernible roast. It's mostly a cheesy (cask ale-like), sweet (kölsch-y/lager-y), chewy sort of beer. Complex, but uninteresting.

Poured into a tulip glass with little to no head. Look is nice, very dark like cola. Mouthfeel is smooth and light with excellent carbonation. Tastes like Nicely roasted malts. Good nutty sweet taste. Overall it's very enjoyable. Good job yellowhammer!

Thanks to Jim for this one!

Small amount of tan foam when poured, fades away quickly to nothing.
Molasses aroma with a light sweetness.

Taste is also lightly sweet with molasses, a slightly odd medicinal note as well.
Slightly roasty, the odd note seems to dominate unfortunately. Light bodied, seems a little long in the tooth. Overall it's hard to tell if this was once a good beer or not. Not dry or roasty enough for the style.
