On tap @ Kick. Clear, black body with a medium sized off-white head. A bit mild aroma of mild roasted dark malt, dark chocolate, hint of coffee and liquorice. Flavor is smooth roasted dark malt, balanced mild coffee, chocolate and liquorice, moderate bitterness. Fine balanced body and pleasant aftertaste. A really nice Schwartzbier, very enjoyable within its style.

gunnar (7604) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2015
On tap at Cirkus, Stavanger. Pours black as Coke with a weak off-white head. Aroma is weak coffe with butterscotch notes in the back. Taste is deep caramel, butter, coffee, light sticky mouthfeel, ash and tarish mild finish. Pity about the butterscotch, too much.

Nera impenetrabile con schiuma bianca, porta al naso caffè ed orzo con qualche riminiscenza di nocciola. In bocca non è diversa, nocciola con tostatura di caffè e orzo, finale leggermente amaro, secco quasi d’erba corpo snwllissimo, molto leggero, quasi acquoso.

330ml bottle on 16th Sep 2015, at the Shrewsbury Bottle Exchange Group meeting: cheers to Paolo. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Smooth and malty brew with some hop action within the flavours. Light coffee notes throughout and mild hop bitterness blended to give a decent enough beer but nothing to get excited about.

330ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, Sep 15, thanks to Paolo! Pours deep dark brown with soft foamy tan head. Light yet pillowy mouthfeel. More of a porter than a Schwarzbier, with some caramel moments. Decent.

Bottle thanks James. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Nice lacing. Coffee. Quite stout like appearance and taste. A bit dungy.

Aspetto: nero scuro, corvino, impenetrabile. Schiuma compatta marrone chiaro, color cappuccino. Al naso malto tostato, ma anche resina, agrumi e alcool. In bocca aroma di caffè, ma anche resina. Ottimo corpo, rotonda.

Spina. Colore tendente al nero, schiuma beige, presentazione già di per se ottima. Aroma che chiudendo gli occhi potrebbe far pensare ad un IPA, abbondanza di luppoli, nota resinosa, ma anche alcune caratteristiche delle stout, come malto tostato. Sapore sorprendente nel senso buono, dove emerge caffè, cioccolato, in primis, per poi lasciare spazio all’amaro dei luppoli. Carbonatazione evidente, ottima anche al palato. Veramente eccellente.
