Drought. Dark brown with small spongy beige head, no specific aroma, you can taste coffee beans in the background, average carbonation, abrupt finish. Not bad but not special either.

Café! Delícia, bem balanceada, cremosa, malte tostado evidente, mas sem amargar nem ser doce. Muito bom! Só o aroma é fraco. Também năo deu espuma, mas o copo năo era adequado.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meget mørk rødbrun med stabilt lysebrunt skum. Duften er svag men præget af mørk malt. Smagen er maltdomineret med bitterhed fra både mørk malt og humle. Forholdsvis kort mild bitterhed i eftersmagen. Meget velbalanceret schwarzbier.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Archetypical German Schwarzbier with DDR origins, blackish in colour with a beige head, caramelly aroma with roasted malts, smooth mouthfeel with deep caramel malts as well as oasted bitterness and a pungent but brief bitterhops ’sting’ in the finish. Still a very good example of its style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle bb172015, local. Deep mahogani brown-near black pour with generous, stable beige head. Aroma is less inviting, revealing its basic black lager character here: subdued dark malts and strange meaty metallics, which reappear in the taste as a mineral green vegetable (spinache, leek) note. Main body is composed of democratically roasted malts, very light ash, and generous diluted caramel. Semi-dry palate. I do not mind having this benchmark and near-only consolidated Schwarz once in a while, but would prefer to sample more smaller batch, unpasteurised Schwazrbier specimens, a dying style even in the (former) East now it seems.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle. Pours very dark reddy brown with a medium head. Aroma is dusty Weetabix, cola and coffee. Taste is watery cola to start and some yeasty beef on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beautiful looking but rather watery beverage with faint aromas of roasted malts and coffee. Some slightly sour fruits shine through. Disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear but nontransparant appearance, medium head. Roasted malt, caramel and herbal aromas, semi sweet coffee taste. Good Schwarzbier.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drink cold (8°)
Eye: pours a deep black colour with some sort of beige stripes in it. thick long-lasting beige to brown head.
Nose: smoke, coffee and roasted malts, spices as well such as pepper. smells even a bit burned
Mouth: coffee, chocolate and smoke
Palate: coffee, chocolate and smoke again a bit watery though
Overall: a bit one sided because of the strong malts and smokiness. not bad though if you like this kind of beer.

I actually bought it in a mini keg so my rating might have been different if I drank from a bottle. The beer had a strong but pleasant smell, the looks keg is very appealing, and the beer itself is good with a dark black body and white slightly creamy foam head,light taste, watery feeling when she goes down, bitter and cheap after taste but overall a great beer
