Presented decently in the glass, but definitely not for me. Managed only about one-half of the pour. Very bitter and astringent, without any counterbalance to it: Harsh.

This pours a clear, brown like Coke with no head. The aroma has hints of roasted malt, chocolate, and a little smoke. The flavor is balanced between coffee and molasses which fades and honey mixes with coffee in the finish. It's got a thin mouthfeel and may pair well with chocolates as an after dinner drink. Slightly recommended.

Black pour, with light, creamy tan head that lasted a couple minutes. A dark, roasty malt smell, and as beer warmed, some subtle lagerish yeasty smells. Light bodied beer, with more burnt than roasty malt tastes, and a very quick finish and thin taste. Watery overall, with a slight bit too much carbonation for a darker beer, I thought. At times tasted lightly of biting on foil, and a bit metallic. On the palate it was such that I couldn’t seem to taste this with my whole tongue, but it seemed to only strike flavor sharply on the sides of my tongue. As a result, somewhat bland and not full flavored. Not terrible, but nothing I’d seek out again.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours a dark brown color with touches of amber at the edges and a thin foamy beige head. Bland aroma and flavor. Malty with a slightly hopped dry finish. Nothing to exciting. I find that a lot of these German styles are watered down and bland.

This is a disappointing schwarzbier folks. I usually like these styles of beer that I have, but this one just misses the mark. I don't know how to explain it. You have to try some schwarzbiers for yourself to figure it out. There is a freshness date on my box so I know it's not too old. I don't know how people can rate this beer so high. I don't know maybe there is something wrong with my mouth. Cheers! C- (70-74) score range

Pours a dark, nearly impenetrable amber color and smells exactly like a gingersnap cookie. However, in spite of its dark appearance this beer has a very light, thin taste. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and the beer is quite bitter. However, there really just isn't a lot of flavor to this beer. I couldn't discern much past the bitterness.
