Excellent roast and smoke aroma and taste---especially for a 4.5% ABV brew. Black color with medium tan head. Relatively thin body is to be expected for this style. Label and brand name are memorable.

A promising Schwarzbier that starts out with a huge roasted nose and black colour, but falls short due to thin watery feel and watered down flavour. very drinkable, but better body would help this beer immensely.

Couple of singles from a local store, I've seen this beer around sporadically yet it remains elusive on a regular basis. Mildly smoked lager with a dark body and heavy malty feel. The overall goodness surprised me incredibly.

On tap @ Bearden Beer Market: thinnish black pour with a tight short head, ample lacing. Big roasted chocolate aromas with a decent dose of hops, a touch of coffee. Taste is rich roasted malts with chocolate and coffee followed by a light hops bitter linger. Very good beer; well done.

Pours a dark, barely transparent chocolate brown with a fairly thick, if none too persistent, beige head. Aroma is strong, oily and smoky, more like that of a fine stout or porter. Flavor is rich, malty smoky with an undertone of unsweetened chocolate and a hint of fine coffee. Texture is smooth, finely grainy and fairly fizzy. Recommended to all who love dark beers.

This is one tasty session beer...Smells of smoke and malt and wood some malt. Pours watery brown with a decent head that lasted a bit. Light body on this one which I would of liked a bit more depth. Finish was smooth and the carbonation was nice. Flavor was a treat. A nice and sweet smoky treat. malt and wood it was a refreshing beer.

Wow. Pop this open and smell the gunpowder. What a novel beer. Pour it. Dark, thin and foamy. Like a soiled dove i guesss. It feels like the old west. This town isn't big enough for the both of us. Now draw! Delicious

Pours a dark brown with medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Taste is roasty, smoky, sweet, with hints of caramel, bitter chocolate, and coffee. Very good for the style.

As I pour this into my 25cl tulip glass I get a full, roasted aroma. The head forms an initially three finger thick, slightly brown, tan color that recedes at a medium pace. The beer is an opaque black color that shows a stunningly, brilliantly clear, rich ruby hue when held up to the light. Roasted notes take on flavors of deeply browned bread crust, black coffee, burnt grain flavors and a soft, but substantial salty smokiness; this last made me look at the bottle & yep there is some smoke malt in the grain bill. I really like the extra depth that the smoked malt adds to the aroma.
Fairly light bodied with a touch of sweetness to it that is accentuated by the fact that it is a bit cold. Warming the beer helps a bit, including a boost to the body which seemed a bit thin before. The finish has a touch of chalkiness to it in addition to a thin smoke note that isn't nearly as lush and appetizing as it is in the aroma. A significant roast character provides lost of burnt flavors, a touch of acidity, some astringent burnt grain husk flavors. A touch of fruitiness seems to be here at times, though it is very subtle, but most reminds me of burnt cherries. The roast grain here definitely supplies a bit of bitterness to the finish.
This has a great aroma to it, but unfortunately the flavor doesn't quite live up to the promise of the nose. Not bad, but the aroma got me expecting something that was quite tasty.
