Aroma is roast, toffee, malt. Nice foamy tan head. Flavor's like nose, plus some bittersweet. Body's a tad thin. Decent enough beer.

Poured into a dimpled mug.

Look: A black body with brown hues when held to the light. A nice cream colored head that retains a nice semi-thick film. Light lacing.

Aroma: Toasted bread, nuttiness, chocolate, toffee.

Taste: Very sweet to start with toffee really coming through. Toasted grains, sweet malts.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, very drinkable.

Overall: Really sweet, toasted. Great flavors.

Das Schwarze produces a rich amount of light tan and creamy looking head. The body is black, but reddish hues are easily detectable in natural light.

The aroma is sweet and smells a little copperish like a jar full of pennies.

The taste is a little smokier than I thought. Immediately the taste is a little sweet, but does give way to this smoky taste.

This brew is light in alcohol but full in body. Definitely this is good to go with venison or some smoked cheddar.

Pours dark brown with a tan foam head. No lace.

Some nice malt aromas, a little cocoa and nuts, a touch of molasses. Not a strong aroma though.

Nice roasted malt, with a little cocoa, no charred or burnt notes. Molasses essence, meaning flavor but not sweet, and maybe some nuts. Mildly bitter. Long pleasant roasted malt finish. A slight sour note in there somewhere. It all works.

A little acidic, mildly carbonated.

Nice version of the style. Drinkable and multi-layered. A very soft beer. Smooth. Worth trying.

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A nice two finger head was poured into the glass. The head has reduced a little bit and left some frothy lacing on the glass. It is a dark brown black color with a little bit of vision when held up to a light.

Smell: Caramel, toffee, chocolate, bready malts, a little lager yeast, and noble grassy hops.

Taste: Caramel, toffee, chocolate, bready malts, lager yeastiness, mild hop bitterness, a little roastiness, and molasses.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, a little water, medium carbonation, crisp, refreshing, and a bit smooth.

Overall Pretty cool schwarzbier that I have never seen before. Found it in JP and figured I really don't have much to lose. I could enjoy more of these in the future.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a dark chestnut amber with a one finger light tan head that dissipated fairly quickly to a ring around the glass with wispy lacing. Aroma of sweet toasted malt, molasses, light nuts and a hint of hops. Flavor follows with toasted malt, a slight nuttiness, rye bread, finishes slightly dry with light grassy hops, faintly metallic. Light bodied with nice carbonation. The flavor is subdued, but very nicely balanced. Flavors are good enough that they make me want a slightly more intense version. Still nice schwarzbier that popped up in our market and is apparently a one time only arrival. I'll have it again if it shows up.
