Bottle 330 ml. What a great beer this is, nice pitch black colour, medium beige foam which stays a bit, good aroma combined with the Swartz taste is really good, not to mention the after taste of anis and the soft consistency f the beer it self. :-)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, from a trade with Countbeer, thanks! Poured into a tall tulip, ABV 4.7%
Dark brown in colour wih a small and thin light beige head. Average retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of coffee, light chocolate, liquorice.
Taste is slighty better but nothing to be too excited for, again coffee, lighter liquorice, some hops giving a nice bitterness quite fast and carrying on the aftertaste, along with dark chocolate.
Thin body, okay carbonation.
Mixed feelings about this beer, is nothing spectacular but it leaves a good impression at the end. I’d say it’s a decent example.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An easy to drink beer with a little bitterness in it. Some chemical off-flavors makes this beer falls short of my expectations, but on the whole a pretty good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with decent head. Roasted and hoppy scents with crisp bread and citrus. Palate is slightly thin but well balanced with good lingering bitterness and toffee-like tastes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark color and head. Quite rich roasty dark smell and full body taste with roasty taste. Rather sweet too which is not my favorite, but still a very good dark ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared a 33cl bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with some reflections and a tan head. Aroma is liquorice, malty, caramel, hops and coffee. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is more bitter than sweet with a dry finish. Overall, a very nice dark beer but not necessarily remarkable.
