3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2014/01/26 - Pours a dark brown amber colour with a two finger, foamy, khaki head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is bread, smoke and cocoa. Taste is similar to nose; bread dominant with some roasted coffee and bitter cocoa notes. Mouthfeel is oily with sharp carbonation and a crisp finish that leaves a smokey and mildly bitter aftertaste.

Esta es mi gold standard para las cervezas negras. Tiene todo lo que se espera de una buena negra: buen olor, cuerpo, potabilidad, ligera al principio y amarga al final. Perfecta. En segundo lugar dejo a la Kross Stout.

Near black pour with a tan head of tight bubbles. Grainy nose with light molasses notes. There’s also a foresty sort of aroma that I can’t quite define. Much less grain on the palate. Light molasses and that foresty note. A touch of licorice. Medium body. I’m not sure what to make of this.

A tasty little brau on a Winter afternoon, the Schwarz is with this one. Dusky brown with a following lace of beige, notes of toasted nuts, smoke, caramelised maple syrup, kibbles, chocolate and coffee build a malty tower of flavour and scent. The maltiness is nicely balanced by lightly spicy and herbal hop bitterness. A nice light prickliness gets the flavours across and letting this mellow on your tongue leaves a nice smokey-mocha taste.
