The golden Bohemian skies turned black. The cool floral breeze spiked into a whirl of burning bitter fruits. Everything changed. A beautiful dance between darkness and light. Brutal and elegant. Thunder and shooting stars. It was Friday the 13th. Black Friday.

On tap at Brew Dog Notts. Black - yes - one-dimensional smooth bitter thing with little flavour or finish. Slight smokey liquorice. Ok.

Keg at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Ash brown pour with a beige head. Smoke, pepper and dark berry aroma. Flavours of roasted malt, burnt sugar, raisin, black cherry and light smoke. Dark fruit mouthfeel. Tasty stuff.

Keg at The White Hart, Crystal Palace, London. Dark brown with cream head. Quite a sweetish, malty beer, there is a vegetable hint alongside a plummy fruitiness. Not a great deal of palate but enough. Reasonable.

harrisoni (14873) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
On tap at The Brewery. Very dark brown beer. Lasting beige head. Hoppy dark lager. Hops jump out of the glass at you. Then some chocolate malt then more hops. Fresh tasty and lovely. Excellent.

Keg at Black Heart, Camden. Very dark brown, almost opaque. A little bit of brownish head and lacing. Light aroma of grain, cola, liquorice, grape juice... it’s pleasant but hard to get my head around. Sweet candied taste, turning only slightly more bitter in the finish. Clean light body. This is a hard style to pull off, but I’ve enjoyed this.

mR_fr0g (5015) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Keg at the brewery. Aroma is nutty, dark malt extract, sticky, mineral, hint of dried fruits. Opaque dark murky brown coloured pour with a lasting frothy cream coloured head. Flavour is composed of thin roast malts, really malty, some dark choc, dried fruits, very dry in the finish. Very archetypal Schwartz beer. Clean interesting and goes down very easy. Little mineral on the tongue. Nice dry finish begs another sio. Palate is medium light with a crisp dry finish.really tasty Schwartz beer.

Leighton (13605) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Keg at the brewery taproom. Pours clear, deep brown with a lasting, foamy beige head. The aroma holds nicely toasted biscuits and cereal, hints of roast and cocoa. Light-medium sweet flavor with moderate roast, some scorched earth bitterness, mild cocoa, dried fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes a little dry and roasty with further earthy bitterness, burnt toast and biscuits, bittersweet chocolate. Solid.
