>> Holy **** appearance of God, extremely overcarbonated but generating an insane creamy head with retention and lacing of Zeus. Clear deep brown color. Nose is fantastic smoke, lavender, fresh herbs, assertive Black IPA style. Taste is salt, fluffy, aerated, buoyant, never thin, Black IPA bitterness and savoriness. Extremely drinkable. Shocked.

Absolutbeerginer (23) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 7, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 Mélange de malt torréfiés et houblons (fumés). Notes de café, réglisse, herbe verte, et quelques traces animales peu agréables au nez(couverture de cheval). Amertume moyenne contrebalancée par des arômes de malt torréfié qui évoluent (lentement) vers une finale sucrée. S’ajoutent quelques pointes d’acidité. Bière relativement bien équilibrée, sobre, présentée dans une bouteille élégante.

blipp (5974) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Draft at Ginger Man. Pours brown with an off white head. Light caramel malts, faint toast, and some light nutty sweetness. Some light bitterness creeps in at the end as well. Enjoyable.

Dark brown colour with light brown head. Slight aroma of hops. Taste is a bit watery,roasted matls,warmed by alcohol. Not bad overall.

BiddleBrau (929) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Sample at Iron Abbey. Dark brown nice tan head. Aroma is murky, not sure how to describe. Flavor is chocolate with some malt sweetness, hint of roastiness and hop bitterness finish. Still murky though.

Slipstream (2004) - USA - JAN 16, 2014
This was a Merry Christmas draft at the (surprisingly subdued) Ginger Man, where it was called Nigredo Alchemista. Porter-like schwarzbier. Lightly smoked and nicely balanced. Malty, mild espresso, a little nutty, smooth, but with a nice tingle on the palate. Bready aroma. Very nice.

Stew41 (1735) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2013
5 euro for a 400ml hand pump at Bere Buona Birra. Apparently an experimental beer based on a schwarz, which makes sense given the roast, black colour and chocolate. Very soft structure, as expected out of the handpump, but the flavours come through wonderfully well. Good layers of chocolate before the roast kicks in. Good advertisement for higher alcohol schwarz.

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Tap @Luppolo 12, Roma 20.7.2013
Almost opaque dark ruby-black color, good creamy beige head. Light coffeish, hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Citrusy hoppyness, coffee with some caramel. Quite short finish. Label said "schwarzbier" but this tastes more like a black IPA.

gramix79 (2) - BELLAGIO, ITALY - NOV 29, 2013 does not count
provata in bottiglia.schiuma non molto persistente..molto meglio in bocca dove eccellono le note tostate sia del malto..ma sopratutto del luppolo...note di liquirizia evidenti. Una bella birretta.
