3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle. Caramel, roasty aroma and quite hoppy. Good aroma and better appearance, almost black colour, tones of pretty dark red/amber. Good brown thick head. Perhaps quite a weak flavour. Still, a very drinkable dark beer.

Tydelig smag af chokolade. Lidt flad i kulsyren. Ville godt have lidt mere dybt i den for at være rigtig god.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It has fine persistent foam and smells wonderful hard roasted malt with touches of rich licorice. Taste wise the first sip is a little water and anonymous, but it develops in the mouth and become better. Behind the first impression hides the taste of dark rye bread, hard roasted malt, a little nuts, licorice and maybe a little dark chocolate. It lives probably not quite up to expectations for a Schwarzbier, but I want to take it in defense precisely because it is so easy to drink and have most of this beer types characteristics.

Pours dark, black in glass, massive tanned head. Smell of dark malts, hints of coffee, soil, caramel, toast and hay. Moderate sweet, toasty malts, dark malts, grass and hay, Moderate bitter, hay finish. An ok schwarz i guess. Not very exciting, but no flaws either. It’s definitly an ok beer

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear black body with a small head. Malty and strong aroma of dark caramel and chocolate, and coffee in the back. Strong flavour that follows the aroma, with a tad more emphasis on the coffee. Light sweet and moderate bitter taste. Thin, light-bodied and watery on the palate, moderate carbonation. Another schwarzbier that fails to impress me.
