Caratteristica de ’na biretta nera è il colore impenetrabile. Intensa ed ampiamente profumata, porta al naso sentori di malto tostato e cioccolato fino ad una punta di liquirizia e caffè senza estremismi. La schiuma si presenta densa e cremosa, il corpo rimane equilibrato, morbido e persistente. ’na biretta nera si sposa egregiamente con arrosti, affettati affumicati, carni e verdure alla brace.

Rune (8705) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
Nice kind of 330ml bottle, lotto 416, picked up at Vinmonopolet Valkendorf in Bergen, carried home and shared with Finn. Tan-coloured head that laces well down the glass. Jet black body colour. Smell of earthy malts with hints of chocolate. Creamy chocolate to the fore offset by the taste of roasted coffee beans. Dry ending containing hints of almond. Mid-sweet. Pleasant schwarzbier (Tromsø, 20.09.2012).

Pours a nice, thick head like crema. Nice notes of cherries, chocolate and coffee. A little meager on the palate, and leaves a little to be desired. Short aftertaste. It’s good, but I feel it should have a little more intense aromas of roasted malts and more body.

Rangi (617) - NEW ZEALAND - JUN 16, 2012
This was a surprisingly good beer! The beer poured jet black, any head quickly disappeared. The aroma was like a stout nice roasted malts, coffee and chocolate but was subtle and retrained with no significant after taste. Had it with an Italian meal which it complemented extremely well.

Bottle from local Italian market. Poured super dark black. Little head no lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, coffee, chocolate. Sweet like a good and plenty, light but watery. Definitely worth another shot with a fish dinner.

ClubGonzo (4370) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a near-black brown body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is cocoa, dark berries, hints of leather and cream. Taste is dark chocolate, cream and hints of ashes. A bit thin, but that is to be expected from a Schwartz I suppose. OK, but rather dull on average.

mansquito (3754) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Total Wine, Fairfax 500ml ($5): Pours black with tan head. Aroma is heavily chocolate and coffee. Taste is much the same. It be nice and bitter. Roasted malts are pretty powerful in this one. Body is a little light, but way more substantial than that of other beers of this style. Very drinkable. Minor aftertaste. Quite good.

larsga (6372) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2012
Medium brown head. Opaque black body goes deep dark brown with visible particles at edge. Roasty licorice aroma with earthy coffee notes. Dry-sweetish roasty licorice taste with earthy mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dry roasty coffee aftertaste with burnt toast notes. The burnt, ashy toast lingers for a good while. Underlying resiny hoppy background throughout. Very nice and harmonic, really a well-brewed beer, and highly drinkable. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

This stuff is very dark. Jet black, even. There’s a significant head, but it fades fast and doesn’t leave a lot lacing down the glass. The smell is like a stout, there’s burnt toast and coffee and anise, and more of that in the flavor. A little sweet chocolate, too. But the flavor is all in the front. The finish is light and crisp and maybe a little to watery. I found the flavor was fading before I’d even finished swallowing each sip. Not bad, but but really what I want.
