1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is a bit skunked with a little bit of caramel malt, chocolate, nuts, and a touch of grassy hops. The appearance is cola brown with a small head. The flavor is sweet and bitter but a lot like the aroma and also skunked. The palate is thin. Overall this is not that good and hardly a schwarzbier.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle courtesy of beastiefan2k. Amber coloured pour with a smell that can only be described as "macro". Pale malt with a touch of light nuttiness. Lightly honeyish. It’s drinkable, but it’s not good.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ Beerfest Asia. Fizzy head dissipates fast on a clear, light brown body. Aroma is flawed with butter and phenols. Light and fizzy palate. Some smokiness in the flavors is good. Actually it’s light but not bad to drink. Has good malt character and some floral overtones to boot.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light brown pour with an off-white head. Slightly malty aroma, notes of caramel and biscuit. Flavor is watery and weak. There’s just no depth to this brew at all.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled at The Globe, Central, HongKong. Clear nut brown, small head. Fruity nose with some paper. Mid-sweet and medium bodied with clean mouthfeel and taste profile. Barely enough substance to hide the 6.5%. Fruity and a syrupy despite being relatively dry. No bitterness. Dull, lifeless and Carlsbergy.

courtesy of Philipp and Thomas - pours a clear brown beer under a solid and long lasting pale beige foam; very buttery aroma with notes of caramel and cola; sweet and medium-bodied; initially velvety mouthfeel but with a late earthy tartness; dry aftertaste of butterscotch and vegetables - cloying and unpleasant

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Much better than the local Indochinese lagers, this is still a poor beer. Too watery, with hardly any aroma. The "black beer" taste is over diluted.
