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.

50cL bottle, courtesy of omhper. Thanks, Per! Pours a very deep dark mahogany color; bright off-white head with creamy, medium-sized bubbles (almost like milk froth) with textured, thin lacing. Plenty of nougat and lightly roasted malts in the aroma; cocoa powder and chocolate; sweet without being sticky. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: plenty of cocoa and milk chocolate and nougat; a warm vanilla note permeates the mid-palate, with a bready note, and slight citrus adding some nice acidity. Lengthy, doughy and vanilla finish; ends quite soft (think: cloud).

Vignale (3374) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2011
Mörk, närmast svart. Stor doft av choklad och rostad malt. Smaken är fruktig med mycket choklad, rostade porterliknande syrliga toner, len, krämig och med en medelstor beska som avrundning. Välbalanserad, lättdrucken och ett öl som passar i många sammanhang. Konstigt att den inte ingår i systemets ordinarie sortiment. Svårt att tänka på någon bättre öl som liknar denna. Åtminstone ingen svensk.

Fungrim (60) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2011
Bottle @ Grövelsjöns Fjällstation. An old friend that has been absent for a while (at least in Stockholm). A huge beer. Big creamy head, off-white. Colour of deep read wine, almost black. Citrus aroma with malts lurking underneath. A lot of malt in the body with some caramel icing on top. Medium-small carbonation. A nicely balanced bitter ending. Delicious mouth-feel and entirely drinkable. As I said, an old friend.

Jämtland show again that lager can be great. Pitch dark, milk chocolate head, full hoppy dryness that lingers for a long time.Fine for sipping, great with food. Not for novices, perhaps. I’d love to have the Jämtland beers available in Norway!

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 Bottle. Deep brown color with a beige head. Aroma of roasted/burned malt, chocolate, toffee, and coffee. Tastes of roasted and sweet malt, coffee, chocolate, caramel and a bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. A bit similar to a stout/porter.

Mad_Ferret (1006) - SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2011
Bottle. Clear chestnut, almost black, with a big tanned compact head that leaves a crater in the glass. Big sweet malty aroma with lots of chocolate, dark bread, syrup, butter, some sweet licorice and nice grassy hops. Taste is sweet and rich with chocolate, crisp bread, caramel, coffee, berries, vanilla and a nice grassy bitterness. Medium to bigger body with soft carbonation. Very rich and nice and, like someone said, almost porter like.
