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.

Palme (4181) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2012
0.33l bottle from #416. This one also pops out of the bottle seconds after popping the cap. Experienced as I am with these Birradamare beers, I opened it over my kitchen sink so no catastrophic consequences here. Anyhow, it pours a deep dark brown body with a medium sized somewhat lasting brown little top. The nose is light roasted and kinda coffee acidic. Some thin chocolate paper also in here. It’s creamy and almost lively on the carbonation. The flavors are not all bad either. Coffee and chocolate, the light burned kind with that clear soft gentle acidic touch found in the aroma. Some might say that it’s a bit thin and almost on the border of being watery, but it’s undoubtedly light drinkable, chocolaty, smooth and quite flavorful. I liked this. 19.10.2012

ClubGonzo (5468) - 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.

larsga (7313) - 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.)

Rune (11365) - 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).

tussius (10) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 1, 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.

mansquito (5474) - 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.
