3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I love a good schwarzbier, and this is one of them. Aroma is typical for style, choc & coffee plus some v slight phenol. Full malty flavour raisins toffee, some toasty bite. Sweet slightly alcholic finish. Pretty good

I dont see any lager here but it is quite nice beer. Lots of malt, coffee taste, sweetness and a bit of biterness. Too much acidic and watery taste.

Dark roasted and very malty in the beginning. Nicely hopped. The mainpart is bitter, very dry, slightly roasted and well balanced. In the long aftertaste even becoming dryer, crisp and roasted!

Shared 330 ml bottle. Pours jetblack with a small tan head. Aroma is a bit hoppy with some fruit and malty. Taste is really sweet with burnt malts, a tad too sweet for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor, the old label. Pretty much a stock standard dark ale like many before it. Think Monteith’s Black, Toohey’s Old .etc. Solid dark with high carbonation to help the bitterness flow. Nice enough but nothing to set it apart from other beers of this style

bottle @ home. colore marrone limpido con evidenti riflessi rosso rubino. profumo poco intenso e poco persistente di malto e di frutta secca, sia noci che nocciole. lieve torrefazione. gusto abbastanza intenso ed abbastanza persistente. dolce abboccata, poco amara, per nulla acida. rotonda, poco calda, è molto equilibrata per via del lievissimo amaro da tostatura, molto elegante. armonica, è piacevole in tutte le sue componenti.
