3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice creamy head. Starts intense malty, mild roasty, mild dry background. Modest sweet. Finish a bit milder, but not washy. Well balanced malty finish. Nice!

Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil - dark amber beer, with a moderate, soapy lace - lightly smoky aroma, with notes of chocolate, char, tobacco - medium-bodied - crisp, almost tart up front, followed by some notes of berries, doughy flavors, light bitterness and roast - very smooth, solid, drinkable - nice schwarz.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at brewery. Dark brown, almost black with red tint and foamy off-white head. Nice looking brew. clean with asphalt, husk, and dark malt. Quaffable beer with low carbonation. Nice sweet malty flavors and licorice permeat, then finish also with anise and asphalt and is not a toasty example. Really good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle MHD 8.12. Nose of roasted malt, very mildly sweet. Dark ruby but a dark brown-black away from light, has a fizzy, rocky tan head. Sharp smack of acidity up front, roast and strong mocha, faint fruit, sweet but drying. Low bitterness and a medium body leaning to light. A crisp, mild Schwarzbier that huddles with the fruitier crowd rather than the ashy chocolatiers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
.5 liter bottle at spuyten. Pours a nice deep dark amber-coppery brown with a nice lasting head. Aroma is a sharp toasty almost roasted malt character, nutty and chocolate- very clean sliight yeast, and no diacetyl like the previous beer. Rich toasty, dark munich and slight chocolate malt flavor, a drying toastiness, nutty all the way through and a crisp clean finish. Great Schwarz.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen - shared with Yngwie and Gunnfryd. Dark brown body, small white foamy head. Nose is wort and dark malts with hints of toffee. Taste is more malty, in the typical "schwartz" kinda way. Body is decently full for the genre, with a moderate amount of carbonation. Decent, but a bit bland and non-descript. At least, I don’t have much to say about it.
