jookos (3343) - FINLAND - JAN 21, 2013
Bottle. Brown, clear. Dark bready malts, lager notes. Some light metallic, roasted malts, woody notes and tar-y things. A dark lager pretty much, with some tarry jerky. Body is good medium light. Smooth. Tasty for a dark lager, with the slight tar, oaky, notes. A bit light, but ok.

RexTalionis (2978) - FINLAND - JAN 18, 2013
Flip-top bottle. Pours dark brown in color with small beige head. Sweet maltyness along with roasted malts and hints of chocolate in aroma. Reminds a bit of some sweet rye bread actually. Roasted malty mostly and hints of coffee in flavor but sadly there it ends. A bit dry in taste and feels a bit monotonous compared to the fact that the aroma promised a bit more. The malty sweetness and ’juiciness’ was not just there in the end.

inbirraveritas (1330) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 2, 2012
Bottled. Nearly non-transparent black/ruby body, beige head. Smell of molasses and black bread. Heavy malty aroma ruled by molasses, black bread and dough underpainted by mild roasted malt and grassy hops. Usually Schwarzbier charactered, somewhat thin mouthfeel. Mild roasty, sweetbitter finish. Tasty, easy drinkable brew .

BlackHaddock (4840) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2012
5.2%ABV Flip-top, half-litre bottleBBD 19 Jan 2013: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard @ home on 21 Nov 2012. Large pop as I opened the bottle, the beer wanted to get out: the glass filled with tanned foam and only half the actual beer left the bottle before my glass almost overflowed with the huge head I’d produced. Once everything had calmed down a bit I poured the remaining beer into my glass and had a good sniff: toasted/roasted bread/biscuity malt esters in the smell. The taste was also mostly of malts, I found some toffee flavours before stronger dark chocolate and mildly hoppy finish rounded off each sip. This is one of the better brews I’ve had in this style: more depth of flavour and body strength from start to finish.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 14, 2012
Már a neve is adja, hogy milyen színe van ennek a sörnek, amit egy kapucsínó szerű és színű ha takar be, elég kitartóan. Íze is illata pörkölt malátás, kávés, sötét, bogyós gyümölcsös és enyhén fás. Könnyű teste van és elég szénsavas. Utóíze kesernyés, enyhén fanyar és száraz. Érdekes és remekül itatja magát.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2012
#892 Ein Schwarzbier mit schöner Optik, das leider überhaupt nicht meinen Geschmack trifft. Das beginnt mit diesem Pumpernickel-Aroma und endet in eben diesem bitter-süßen Geschmack, der leider überhaupt nicht süffig ist. Nicht mein Bier! Test vom 13.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,6,7,7,12,7 - 7,60

Blasphemer (104) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2012
23.09.12:(Flasche):sehr dunkel mit Rotstich und cremefarbener Schaum. Dunkle Trockenfrüchte, Röstaromen und Schokolade im Aroma. Der Geschmack ist recht leer. Neben Vollmundigkeit gibts noch eine angenehme Bittere. Rundes Bier aber nichts besonderes.

blipp (6836) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Draft. Poured into a ceramic mug with an off white head. Toasted bread, a little bit of weird malty sweetness, and a toffee-sweet malty finish. Decent.
