12oz bottle. No apparent package date. Appearance: Deep amber, slightly hazy, and an off white foam cap. Aroma: Getting some sulfur, followed by some bready, toasted malt Taste: A salty, crystal malt flavor with some toastiness an herbal hop character. Just a hint of roastiness. Mouthfeel: Light to medium mouthfeel with a moderate carbonation Finish: Lingering maltiness and some herbal hop character Overall: If this is supposed to be a schwarzbier/black lager, it’s missing the mark. This is much closer to a Vienna or marzen, but with noticably more crystal malt character. Completely missing that restrained roastiness that is the definition of the style. Not the worst lager I’ve had, but far from the best.

Became interested in trying this after reading about the whole Katrina / Dixie Brewery debacle and the subsequent fight / loss of the brewery bldg, etc. Can't speak to the taste of this pre-Katrina--which some are stating was superior to the relocated version--but I thought this was a very good-very drinkable beer. My wife was drinking a Yuengling while I was tasting this and I thought there was absolutely no comparison. This actually looked like more of a red / amber lager or ale vs. a black beer too me and in fact, I was honestly thinking it was a little Belgian Esque, given the sweetness, color, head, etc. Don't know that this would really stand-alone as a sipping beer or work in bulk as a session, but it's definitely a great food accompaniment. (Paired with Sausage and hot pepper sandwiches and potatoes.) Nice!

This all-malt beer is an enjoyable alternative when you are craving something sweet. It lacked a backbone, but displays a consistent malty balance from front to finish.

Share with a friend or two, because I doubt you'll want more than 2, given the sweetness in this one.

This is a good beer for cleaning the sink drain. Could not find a date on the bottle - so I am not sure how old it was.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Douglasville, GA
Aroma- Has a pretty good aroma of malt and sweet spice.
Appearance- This is a dark brown beer with a small off-white head.
Taste-the main flavor is malt with some sweet caramel flavoring tossed in.
Palate- this is a light bodied and lightly carbonated beer
Overall- I believe I have had this years ago but I remember it tasting different. I then read other comments saying it was now brewed under contract. That makes sense on why it tastes different. I thought it tasted better in the past, but not a bad beer.
