3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark brown colour. Very fresh malty aroma - it is a Baron beer after all. Light coffee flavour, fairly light but again quite fresh. Lacks the depths of dark malt I’d expect in a schwarzbier...it’s more of a dunkel but even then the freshness is more accented than the complexity.

Bomber from Sondra. Blackish color with ruby translucence. Beige head that left quickly. Aromas of dark roasted malt and perhaps coffee and chocolate notes. Near medium body with light, fizzy carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour dark roast malt. Finish is rather balanced. Fairly refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Dark black with light ruby tints and a thick creamy tan head. Aroma is very toasty, with some nuttiness and a light noble hop aroma. Well lagered. Flavour is also malty, nutty, and toasty with some faint earthiness. Subtle noble hop flavour on the finish. Easy to drink with a bit of faint anise and sweet maltiness in the finish. These guys know how to do Germany proud.

Bottle: Dark mahogany, nice head and lacing. Nose of peanut shells and light roast, some caramel in the flavor. Nutty and roasty, nice smooth finish. A bit lacking in the roast department but plenty nutty and still tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22. Black with no head, lace, or visible carb. Mild roasty, cola-like nose. Fizzy thin body. Roasty, cola-like mid-palate, with a long cola finish. Needs a little breadth of flavor, and some more visible carb and head. Plenty of carb in the body; maybe a bit too much.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This Schwarzbier pours a deep brown color from a 22oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is chocolate and roasty malts with a touch of earthy hops. Medium to lighter bodied dark lager. Malts are roasty and semi-sweet chocolate. Hops are earthy and floral. Somewhat toasty and nutty tasting. Nice balance. Good carbonation. This beer reminds me of the generic “dark beer”, simple, good and drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a touch roasty.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pours a medium mahogany brown with a rather lively light brown head. aroma of coffee with fruity nuances. Palate is on the thin side and slightly overcarbonated, with flavours of coffee, chocolate, with a reedy vegetal note in the end. Just okay for me, not as roasty as I like.
