3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky brown color with a beautifull, thick, frothy, white head, nice lacing too. Aroma of roasted malt, mild chocolate and fruit (cherries and raspberries).Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate and fruits. Light body, soft carbonation, chalky finish. Not bad but I’m not too fond of schwarzbier.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml can. Very dark brown/mohogany coloured beer with a thick, lasting off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and light fruit. Flavour is similar but also has a nice herbal quality. A trace of flowery hops in both the nose and the mouth. Dry finish. Very tasty.

Aroma is chocolate, roasty, butterscotch. Pour is a black, ruby with light. Nice lasting head. Light chocolate, with cherry, and rasberries. A very nice beer, this is something I could drink often.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coffee colored with ruby tints and a large foamy white head. Lightly sweet malts, some raosted barley and bitter-sweet cocoa all come through in the flavor. Finishes dry and moderatley bitter. Nice stuff.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours black with a reddish head. Chocolate malt to the nose. This was a disappointment in the flavor area, with a definite musty, moldy taste that makes me think my beer was either no longer fresh or infected. Ugh.

12oz bottle: Pours an actual black in the bottle. A bit scary at frist, but it is called Schwarzbier for a reason. Has a thick red head. Overtone of malt with an almost coffee like aftertaste. Good beer, I’ll have to get it again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very deep, rich, mahogany colour. Almost opaque. The aroma is restrained malt - not very assertive. The flavours are a lot more interesting with burnt malt, chocolate, prunes and caramel. Mellow, yet with some bitterness to provide an edge. Rather nice. Bottled from beersofeurope.co.uk. BBE 31 August 2004.
