Bottle. Dark brown with bubbly beige head. Packed to the brim! Malt, coffee, dark chocolate, leather, vegemite, chalky (do not want to steal duff’s ashtray/charcoal - but that’s more it!), dry and bitter finish. Full, fluffy(?) mouthfeel. I love it - must be one of the best bottom-fermented beer I’ve ever had.

Brown colour tan head looks nice. Aroma is roasted but rather weak. Flavour is again roasted and sad to say a bit watery. Carbonation is lively.

Bottled. Dark reddish brown colour. Beige, small head. Chocolatey, caramelly aroma. Roastmalty, bitterchocolatey taste. Not very hoppy for the style. Medium bitter and roasty finish. Mediumbodied. A great, though untypical schwarzbier. Thanks to MrWalker for this nice treat.

50 cl bottle - Dark brown with a brown, big and lasting head as with most schwarzbiers. Big fruity aroma with some hops. Roasty and almost smoked flavor combined with some mild hoppiness. Was expecting more from Jämtlands and its high ratings. More sweetness is to be desired.

To me it’s more a dark lager than a schwartzbier. Very dark, lots of roasted character but still lets the hops through. Refreshing for a dark beer like this. NIce aftertaste.
