1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
33cl. the beer starts sweet and malty. Like a malt beverage with alcohol. But very watery. Especially for 5.6%. And very sweet - too sweet for a beer. Probably too sweet for a good malt beverage as well. The aftertaste is long - the dark brown sugars and the maltyness stay long. Nearly no hops visable.
--> Sweet dark watery brew - nothing worth to mention.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 5.6%. Fat, roasted aroma. Very dark brown colour, red shine. Small tan head. The flavour is very malty and sweet. Lots of maltose, but not quite molassis. Similar to hvidtøl. I like it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear very dark copper brown with airy tan head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel with notes of molasses and roast. Sweetish flavour of caramel and malt with a note of sweetener. Mildly bitter, slightly metallic finish, otherwise sweet. Not the best Schwarzbier I’ve tasted (it is one at all?), but drinkable.
