This is the classic schwarzbier stuff! Deep black to ruby red, a long lasting head. Really nice palate, nutty, roasted malts, hints of chocolate and a sweetness that is well balanced with the hops. A refreshing beer, though it looks "heavy", and one of my favourites. Furthermore; nice bottle design!

gripweed57 (916) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a translucent brown color with a small foamy beige head. Rich roasted malt aroma is subtle. Some chocolate notes. Flavor is sweet roasted malt with hints of cola and coffee. Bittersweet malty middle. Dry, nutty finish has a wisp of hop bitterness. Very drinkable. I enjoyed this.

jaszymku (116) - POLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Wygląd klasyczny ciemny lager, z dobrą pianą - znika ale się osadza. W aromacie słodka kawa z mlekiem, jakby był dodatek laktozy. Chyba odrobina chmielu. W smaku delikatne, z zaznaczoną goryczką, dość czysty słodowy profil, bez dużej paloności. Przyjemne na koniec wieczoru.

Holmen2 (1658) - NORWAY - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle at Stuelands Abothek 29.05.15. Almost black. Beige lacing and small head. Dark chocolate sauce and roasted malt in aroma. Similar taste, with moderate bitterness. Good drinkability. Perhaps slightly waterish.

Brandon1989 (417) - Euless, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Pours a dark brown, almost black with some ruby shining through it when it is held up to a light. There is a small tan head that left some lacing around the glass. The aroma is brown bread and roasted barley malts. The taste is roasted barley, some faint notes of chocolate, and sweetness to it. The mouthfeel is smooth and drinkability is high.

Marcius (250) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAY 14, 2015
Appearance with black color and brown dense head. Toasted aroma (coffee). On the palate, it has a nice body and bitterness. Excellent Schwarzbier!
