Even sweeter than the pale lager. A Schwatrzbier brewed under the influence of other intoxicants from the country?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml can all the way from Colombia with big thanks to Deycy. Black with a reddish tint but no lasting head. Smells sweet, toasted and cereally like Shreddies and honey. Some fruitcake in there. Taste has some marzipan and burnt grassy notes. Quite well balanced but sweeter than it is bitter. Light and drinkable despite the dark appearance. I enjoyed this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: front quiet creamy with cleaner lager themed notes. Proper mineral feel with continental hops. 6-
Look: clear dark brown with lighter tanned top. Rather short lived. 3-
Taste/Palate: medium bodied. Slight nutty feel with dark roasted barley, hint of fig and rye. Dark malts behind, hinted with chocolate and proper hops. Good profile but why so flat (served from can and very fresh)?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Some light coffee notes in the aroma. The appearance is dark brown with a very thin poor-looking head. The flavor is that of a schwarzbier on the lighter side with a bit of coffee hanging around in the aftertaste. Mostly just okay.
