3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl bottle from systembolaget. Dark brown with ruby edges and a small, dying cream head. Aroma of roasty and burnt malts, brown sugar, strawberry and chocolate. Flavor is both fruity and burnt with a bitter finish and nice hop spice. full malt profile and smooth crisp balance. Body is full but not thick, fizzy but smooth. Good balance to Hell, but I didnt enjoy it as much as Hell was simply outstanding for its style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black, and with a beautiful ruby red hue. Throws a tall light brown head that clings to the glass. Roasted barley aroma with a dry dose of dark chocolate coffee. Smells like a stout. Flavour is also very dry and very roasted. This is a stout to me - and surely not a schwarzbier as there is way too much roastedness. Dryish bittering hops, and little, if no, aroma hops. Dry roasted finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle courtesy of Marsiblursi. The aroma is lightly roasted, perfumey and licorice heavy. The body is a dark ruddy brown and the head is frothy, two fingers thick, lasting and a nice tan color.
Big licorice fore gets almost salty and gamy tasting at times. Molasses, anise way too much roastiness to be a real Schwarzbier. It is nice though. Enjoyable to drink if a little smokey/gamy at first....but that fades and it is mostly a licorce/anise acented beer with some mild chocolate notes and just a hint of saltiness in the finish.

I understand where this beer gets its name from. It is absolutely divine. The scent is like floating in small clouds. The taste is like from another planet. The aftertaste is left for a while and tastes wonderful. I can not say any negative things about this beer. But buying this today. You will not regret you!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Reading 2006 (Sunday) - thanks Duff. Dark, almost black with ruby hues when held to light. The mosty malty aroma is masked by lots of carbon dioxide coming off it. To taste this is sweet caramel and malt with restrained fruit character. A beer that is extremely easy to drink.

A nice dark lager, with lots of koffee bitternes and sweety dark chocolate. A good dark lager, I like it!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, Sweden. Rudy brown colored beer with a small creamy head that doesn’t last well. Nothing to speak of in the dull nose. Faint smells. Flavor is not flawed, but again very dull and doesn’t provide much to describe. Little mouthfeel. A barely drinkable beer.
