Received in trade from a generous soul who's name was not written down and is forever lost in my clouded mind. Thank you for the opportunity just the same.
Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a thinnish off white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of caramel and brown sugar with a hint of chocolates and sulfur. Faint earthy hops try to provide balance but can't muster the strength to battle the maltiness of this brew. The flavor follows the aroma with sugary malt and a hint of chocolate and some miner off flavors. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet crisp mouthfeel. Decent beer, but really nothing special. Thanks for the state tick, but not a great beer for the style.

Pours opaque brown color with a lot of sediment floating in it; creamy head fades fast and leaves a ring around the top with very little lacing. This looks like a stout with no head after it settles.

Smells of roasted malt, grains, light caramel, faint burnt wood, light yeast and light hops; the malty sweetness is the strongest part of the aroma.

Tastes of roasted malt, burnt grains, light caramel, smoked or burnt wood, yeast, light hops and a little citrus zest that leaves a slight bitter pucker; malty, smoky flavor overall that's decent, but not very complex. Heavy body with medium carbonation and a light, smooth mouthfeel. Overall a decent beer.

Thanks willandperry for this beer, needless to say we don't get this one in Virginia.

A - dark brown almost black, when first poured, lot of head, calmed down after a few minutes where it almost looked like meringue on a pie
S - Not a lot of smell from this one, faint hint of smokiness
T - Hint of chocolate, very light taste
M - Very tasty beer, nothing overbearing, could easily be a session beer

O - Good beer, glad to have the chance to try it and would definitely like another, hint, hint, like to give other beers from this brewery a shot.

Miner Mishap was poured from an undated 12oz short brown bottle into an Anchor Steam pint glass.

The color is black in the deepest reaches of the glass, but more brown around the edges. A fast pour will produce a single finger of fizzy mocha colored head that heads south for the winter leaving the top completely bare. No lace to speak of.

Aromas are a bit sparse at first so I advise you warm this one up quite a bit or drink at room temp. Slightly sweet caramel malt, wet straw, and some port wine is what I get. All very faint.

Flavors are best when this is warmed up quite a bit. Slighly smokey with mild coffee and vanilla bean backed by nutty and grassy tinges.

The feel is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Highly drinkable.

It's a decent beer, but no head turner. Seems it was more enjoyable from the tap.

Surprisingly good beer here. Highly underrated on here. Beer is black / dark brown, hazy, thin off white head, small bubbles, some lacing, moderate to low carbonation.

The aroma is sweet, good yeast profile too. I like this.

Beer is medium in body and quite sweet but not in a cloying way, it is almost boozy but the finish is excellent. I would recommend this beer as a sweeter interpretation of the schwartzbier category to anyone interested in dark lagers.

Thanks to my folks for pickipg up this out of reach Oklahoma beer while they were in Arkansas.

Dark cola brown in color with good bubbling and a khaki colored head and foam that retains well.

Faint smoke to this clean roasted aroma with just a touch of cleansing, earthy hops for balance to the nostril mix.

Roasty, clean, with just a touch of smoked malt. Pumpernickel bread, grassy, earthy ops, and just a little watery coffee. Good session Schwarz!!
