Grand Tasting @ The Harlequin, Sheffield.
Pours deep red-brown with a nice, creamy, beige head. Pleasant, sweet chocolate aroma with some roasted tones. A bit thin, soft carbonation. Flavour has caramel, softly roasted. Fairly long, lingering bitterness. Okay.

Bov (11974) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 12, 2009
courtesy of Oliver Bieri - opaque dark black coloured with a firm and long lasting beige foam; fairly toasted nose with notes of ashes and bacon; moderate malt body, very creamy palate, tart and slightly acidic; moderately dry, creamy and toasted malty finish with weird notes of vegetables - something looks wrong to me here

[322-20070525] Tap @ Craft (Athens). Sweet malty coffee aroma. Dark brown red body with a quick white head. Sweet molasses toffee cream flavour. Medium-full body is creamy. Expecting thicker but smooth and silky was great.

nimbleprop (7489) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2009
Scored a bottle of this while in Rhodes. I love schwarzbiers and this was a pretty good one. Pours a translucent black (surprise) with a thin white head. Aroma is a little absent though, some light toast, maybe a little faint coffee, a touch nutty. Flavor was nice though, nutty, malty, bready, crackers, biscuits and a little bit of toast. Not much hop presence to speak of. Finish was dry and crisp. I enjoyed this quite a bit.
