3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 5.6%. Weak chocolate aroma, perhaps a little roast barley. Almost black colour, seems clear. Big stable creamy light brown head. The flavour is nicely malty, very flavourful. Creamy maltiness with a mild roasted note. Late lactose sweetness (but it is not on the list of ingredients). Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from McTapps & MichaelAwesome - thank you! Pours hazy nearly pitch black with small light tan head. Clear aroma of malt, with touches of caramel and yeast, and hints of coffee. Roasty, bitter flavour, with notes of lactose, malt and coffee, and hints of hops and yeast. Lingering, roasty and coffeelike aftertaste. A decent Schwarzbier, if a trifle watery.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big fine tan head that on top of a black body. Roasted aroma and some oysters. A bit light body. Tad sweet and a mild bitterness. Really mild stuff. Nothing wrong with it, but you would hope for some more sparkling power. Mild bready, roasted and milk chocolate flavor. Decent, but slightly boring.
