Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2007
Pours a dark brown, near black colour with some light brown head, perhaps a little too fizzy, although that seemed to disipate. Quite nice dark chocolate aroma and a mellow chocolate taste that’s quite pleasant, but a bit too fleating. There’s very little aftertaste.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2006
6th Dutch Ratebeer Gathering. Black/reddish coloured. Hard to say what the aroma is. A bit chocolate like. It’s malty and a bit watery.

"Heban Black Beer", says the label, "first Polish Black Beer", though, oddly, the brewer or city of origin is not given. Only Berlson Imports, Minneapolis, MN. A little web searching leads us to the Jurand Brewery. Now, let’s crack open this black beauty and see what lies within... Blackness, absolutely, in appearance, under a prodigious helping of creamy cocoa/ tan foam. Nutty in the nose, creamy, lovely cocoa aroma, a hint of coffee, sweet, yet dry. Nice. Tasting it...nice, full flavor, big chocolate, minor nuts, prevalent coffee tones. Brisk carbonation, nice sweetness, swiftly offset by bitter. Medium bodied, with a long, tasty, sweet finish. Very supple and easy-going in the mouth. Quite likable. Nice dessert beer. Mellow and tasty. Take your time and relax with it. Stuck figuring the style though. Is it a lager or an ale? Could pass for a stout, but it really plays like a dark lager, and it is identified elsewhere as a Bohemian schwarzbier, so that’s gotta be it. I’m a sucker for a well-done version, and this is that. Well worth the $1.88 for the 16.9 oz. bottle.

jerohen (2181) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2006
Dutch Ratebeer Gathering. Clear, very dark coloured, small head. Malty, somewhat sweet, not really roasted. Very watery. Not very special, but it’s a beer i could drink more in a row of.

Stefano (1972) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2007
Black colored, slight red hints. Little beige head. Nicely roasted coffee aroma with caramelly sweetness. Taste was roasty and a bit dark with some hints of chocolate up front a slight amount of caramel or possibly burnt caramel and finishes up with a roasty chocolate.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Good black color,small but long lived tan head that left a nice lace behind.The aroma was roasty and malty with a slight bit of caramel in the back ground.The flavor was roasty and a bit dark with some hints of chocolate up front a slight amount of caramel or possibly burnt caramel and finishes up with a roasty chocolate.I actually have to say i like this alot and must rate this above what the average is.Very nice flavorful brew that is just plain smooth all around.

Appareantly the first "black beer" in Poland. I assume that also includes dark beers in general. The beer is however completely black with a thick head, although it’s not as thick as the picture on the bottle. The aroma is strong of roasted coffee and bitter cocoa-powder. Very good taste indeed. The coffee-theme is continued with an added sweetness reminding me of mudcake. The finish is short but strong. Good one, but hard to find in Warsaw.
