too mild of taste,especially with the name given for this schwarz.tastes like a creamy/smooth burnt chocolate milkshake.

Bottle@Hotel. Dry stout with a very strong coffee flavour. I’d never call this a Schwarzbier.

330ml botte from Fifth Element. I wasn’t expecting the thick black goodness that poured forth from the botte. Good tan head with a roasted malt aroma thick with coffee and smoke. Long smokey flavour that sits in the mouth for a long time. Unexpectedly very good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows chocolate, soy sauce, roasted malt. Somehow both sweet and salty smelling...
More complexity shown in the flavours. Big cocoa and chocolate liqueur but also a bold roasted character with plastic notes.
Body seems a little watery.

This beer was really really good. Pours black with a nice sized khaki head. Excellent flavors of cocoa, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Smells mostly of roasted cocoa and coffee. Slightly sweet finish and oily mouthfeel. Impressive beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at ibrew Ginza. Dark brown, almost black. Aroma is soy sauce, bit of chocolate. Taste is similar but with a bit of cream in there too and a touch of fruitiness and spice. Not bad. I continue to be a sucker for Schwarzbiers.

Bottle from Vintage Cellars. Nice malty beer. Aromas of caramel and chocolate. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Dark brown, with a disappearing head.
