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.

Sigmund (5703) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2015
330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet. BB date was 09.2013, appears to have cellared well. ABV is 5.5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. Decent aroma of chocolate / cocoa and coffee. The flavour is neither too sweet nor too dry. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, mild coffee and moderate but noticeable hops. Well balanced and enjoyable.

Lele (237) - Padova, ITALY - SEP 28, 2014
Birra italiana particolare e gustosa. Colore nero impenetrabile, schiuma fitta, ma grossolana in superficie, color cappuccino chiaro.All’aroma si avverte dell’affumicato, nonché dei sentori liquorosi, di cioccolato e di caffè. Tutti queste quattro note si avvertono anche nel gusto, nonché un leggerissimo acidulo e della liquirizia. Retrogusto non molto persistente.

Alengrin (3147) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Schwarzbier from a young micro brewery in Rome, carrying a light beige, creamy, stable head and very dark bronze colour, almost black, as typical for this style. Cold coffee aroma with hints of caramel, tobacco, dried figues and liquorice. Taste a dry chocolatey and caramelly maltiness, some dried fruit, light spicy tones, smoky touch, finishing in a long, dry toasted bitterness. More than average example of its style.

Ragnampiza (746) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 21, 2014
330 ml bottle. Very dark brown, almost black looking, with a tiny, non persistent beige head. Quite intense nose, lots of roasted malts, light chocolate and coffee, definitely some licorice, perhaps some vanilla and meaty qualities as well. Pleasent hoppy, herbal and bitter kick upfront, sweet-ish malty backbon as following, roasted, slightly spicy. Not as watery as expected, in fact it’s quite silky and almost wine-like smooth. Lingering chocolate, earth/wood and licorice in the aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Solid schwarz!

Come dice la bottiglia. BBONA! La descrizione che riporta ratebeer confermata a tutti i livelli. Gusto pieno ma non esagerato benché forte.

sebletitje (7498) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2013
Draft @ Fiera della Birra di Ferrara, Nov 2013. Brune foncée, col blanc cassé. Arôme est malté avce pas mal de torréfié, grillé qui dominent et procure un agréable bouquet. Palais est malté avec un profil café torréfié assez dominant dans un style qui pour moi était plus proche du stout anglais que d’une Schwarzbier. Palais sec et légèrement chocolaté. Effervescence est moyenne ponctuée par une légère amertume.
