3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark black color, foamy head and nice lacing. Light malty-roasted aroma. Slightly roasted chocolaty malt character, well balanced by a lighter hoppieness. Simple flavor but quite good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
These beers present beautifully when initially poured. The deep dark body with a creamy head, that in my case lasted reasonably well. The nose is all chocolate and low hop which mirrors the taste. Loads of crystal and chocolate malt here with a good (but not really solid) body to match. You definitely think about another one after drinking the first.

It beckoned well, but was a tad disappointing in its delivery. I expect a true schwarzbier to be thicker, richer...

Very black, completely opaque. Quick diminishing tan colour head. Malty aroma, super malty flavour. My first of the type and I have to say, it was pretty decent.

Sweet molasses aroma. Tan two finger head recedes steadily with some lacing. Dark brown with ruby tone not quite opaque. Some roasted malts apparent but generally plain flavour. Very thin body. Can.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown colour with a nice cappuccino head that leaves some nice lacing behind. Mild roasty aroma with a hint of chocolate. Very light bodied with smooth malt flavours and a metallic edge (likely from the can). Not bad, but really needs more heft in the body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice moka head to start with, but collapses fast. Faint chocolate smell, with some malt. Chocolat and malt in mouth, with smooth bitterness in pst taste...tin taste due to can...a good deal for the price...preferered the bottle version!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours dark brown body with a very large head that fades to a big head! Bit roasty, some dry bitterness. Was expecting more from this. Would have preferred a heavier body.
