djoeye (3835) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2015
Look; huge beige foamcrown, dark clear copper-red body. Aroma; dark caramels, dark fruits, dusty raisins, dusty chocolate, grassy modest hops behind. Taste; dark fruits, brown caramels, dark malts, prunes, plum peel, grassy hops - leading to an about soft finish with dark malts and some prunes and grass. Normal texture and soft carbonation. Tasty beer, I just thought it would be black. [50cl brown swingtop-bottle 5.2%abv BB11-11-2015 T@Ferie2015]

ThirstyBird (2617) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
On tap at the source, pours a super dark brown with a light tan head. The smell is roasted malt, molasses, dark bread. The taste is molasses, roasted malt, a bit herbal. The body is light plus with average carbonation.

ippopotamo36 (1771) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 8, 2015
My last beer of my first trip to Franconia :-( Gravity keg (as the waitress reported) at the source in Bamberg-Germany. Pours chestnut skin color, dark with a frothy and tick off-white cap. Nose: dusty, a bit of these "burnt" malts, some well-hidden initial metallic notes, dry prunes. Mouth: frizzy-medium carbonation, round roasted malts, bread crust. Very balanced mouth and quite fresh. Easy to drink and tasty. Apparently I was lucky...the beers are not always in shape here.

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2014
Fra fat på bryggeripuben 10 Okt 14. Ultradypbrun/svart. Filmskum. Aroma av karamell. Smaken er røstet malt & karamell. Svakt røykpreg og passe søt. Et behagelig øl.

Rune (11360) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Poured vom fass, 500ml, at the brewpub. Fading beige head to a deep black coloured body with rustic highlights. Nicely roasted malts on the nose. Dark caramel taste joined by coffee, roasted. Dark malty finish. Well bodied, but easy to drink. Likable (Bamberg 10.10.2014).

Marheb (5019) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
(Bue sur place): Une belle robe sombre laisse passer la lumière. Chocolat noir, caramel et mélasse se mélangent et se laissent compléter par une touche herbacée, poivrée.

Tap at the brewery. From old notes. Black, burnt malt, rich and creamy yet with a pretty light body, hints of fruit. A fabulous schwarzbier

Moravius (1131) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Tiefes Schwarzbraun, klar; reichlich beigefarbener Schaum. - Nase röstmalzig-würzig und fruchtig (Schwarzkirsche). - Im Antrunk gediegenes Röstmalz, schwarzer Kaffee, Karamelsüße, Schwarzkirschen mit pikant-säuerlicher Note. Mild rezent, weich im Mund. Die Karamelsüße nimmt nicht überhand, da durch trockene Röstaromen austariert. Ausreichend hopfenwürzig-krautiger Hopfen im Abgang. Leicht erdig-röstmalziger Nachtrunk mit trockenem Kakao. - Schönes (wenngleich streckenweise etwas holpriges) Zusammenspiel von malzsüßen, pikant säuerlichen und erdig-bitteren Aromen - ein richtig gutes Schwarzbier. - Laut Etikett mit 5,2 % Alkohol und leider auch mit Hopfenextrakt.
