Cannette 500ml. Couleur noire opaque, mousse moka disparaîssant rapidement. Arôme métallique qui disparaît lorsque aéré, malt torréfié, mélasse, cassonnade, miel?, levure, café et cola. Goût de malt légèrement torréfié avec un arrière-goût métallique. Carbonation et corps faible, un peu aqueuse.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- schwarze Farbe mit leichter schneller zerfallender Schaumbildung - ausgeprägtes Malzaroma mit einer leichten Kaffeenote - die Carbonisierung ist m. E. eine Spur zu hoch für diesen Biertyp - geschmacklich kommt dann nichts neues mehr - der Körper ist leider zu dünn und der Abgang wird dann auch leider zu wässrig Fazit: Trinkbares Schwarzbier für den „normalen“ deutschen Markt

Całkiem przyjemna paloność oraz kawa. Mało ciała, ociera się o wodnistość. Spore wysycenie. Przyzwoity przedstawiciel stylu.

My favorite black beer so far. I hope to homebrew something close one day. I do not detect much roast/fruit/other smells or flavors. It is just smooth smooth drinkable. Disappears from the glass too fast. I’m very curious what malt blend they use to get the color without any harsh roast flavors. Seek this out.

Night_Cap (114) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2016 Bottle 330ml. Served at room temperature. Pours dark brown (almost black) with a ruby tint. Head is very lightly tanned, large, foamy and mostly lasting. Aroma is of lightly toasted brown bread, brown sugar, caramel, coco, raisins and sultana’s. Flavour is smooth with a light bitterness, lightly toasted malts, brown bread, cooked brown sugar, dried currants, milk chocolate and light toasty/nut notes in the finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation and a short, clean finish. Quite thin, but easy drinking.

Nice tan head that was long lasting. A nice dark color with an aroma of coffee with a nutty undertone. Nice palate and pleasing after taste.
