hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 Bottle... Very dark, burnt orange lager with a mid-sized, frothy, khaki head. Excellent retention. Understated aroma with afterthoughts of chocolate and smoke. Hearty, but nondeScript flavor for the most part... other than some light roastiness. Leans a touch on the bitter side of balance. Medium-bodied with a whole milk mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, medium bitter finish. Thanks go out to marsiblursi for providing the bottle!

A very good Shwartz, thanks to Abusmaster. With roasted graininess and creaminess, and a moderate malty aroma and good laciness. Brown with white head.Secondary chocolate and coffee/postum. A great session at 5%. Smooth drinking. Medium mouthfeel.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2007
Almost black with a nice head. The aroma is malty. The flavour is like the name: Heaven. It has notes of roasted malt, flower, a bit of chocolate and smoke - all accompanied by a nice bitterness, that lasts all the way through. A really delicious schwartzbier - yummi...

Rune (9995) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2007
500ml bottle sampled at Finn’s. Ruby-black body. Missing head. Malty aroma mixed with a citrus touch. Mellow fruity flavour offset by firm liquorice and caramel notes. Roasted bitter ending. Moderate carbonated. Well balanced (23.02.2007).

Bottle sample at a tasting at tomer’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Dark brown. Aroma of caramel, toast, nuts and a bit of metal. Sweetish flavor, toasty, with a bit of caramel, some nuts, and a bitterish finish with a metallic hint. Medium-bodied.

rosenbergh (9501) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2012
500 ml can. 89810-01. BB 04/13. (Systembolaget) Östersund, Sweden. Dark reddish brown colour with small light tan head. Hops, mild bitterness, roasted malt and berries in aroma. Caramel sweetness too. Flavour is caramel malt, buttery sweetness, bitterish hops and some bitterness. Maybe a little bit too much diacetyl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JorisPPattyn (8895) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2003
Very dark colour, nearly black; dark greige-brown head, fast dissipating. Very (dark)bready, chocolate & varnish nose. Bread aroma gets more burnt - Maillard? Dry, bitterish taste. Grainy flavours like specific dark grains, roaste barley or oats; slight acidic finish included. Bit smoked too. Mouthfeel bit thinnish, unlike all the grainy flavours would suggest. Good dark bottom-fermenting beer. 'Starkol' is Scandinavian perception. Big thanks to Bjorn & Anders for the Jämtlands choice.
