zenkis (667) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 13, 2012
Aroma of sweet and toasted malt, far away tones of pears. Pours clear velvet-reddish with a bit creamy cap vanishing super fast. Hops presence is sensible as in aroma as in mild bitterness afterpath. Although there is presence of oxidation (most in the taste) so a bit messy one.

carldurose (15) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2012
Rich, sweet, dark brown, strong head, would go well with dessert or as an apatief. Strong initial warming flavours of caramel are cooled down by the refreshing beer, very little hop bitterness on the finish leaves the drinker wanting another sip straight away for the initial malt flavour. My first Schwarz for a long time so may be drinking through rosé tinted glasses. Bottle kindly donated from Mediocre Beer Adventures' Dan Brown. Carl Durose

Vells (1000) - Riga, LATVIA - OCT 22, 2012
Copper brown with thin light beige head, that soon disappears leaving no laces. Aroma.. quite intense sweet roasted malts, bread Taste is quite interesting sweet (bit too much) with pleasant hoppy bitter tones. Overall.. drinkable beer from time to time, thou something lacks to buy it in regular terms.
