Vörösesbarna szín, világosbarna közepes hab. Édeskés, melaszos, aszaltszilvás illat. Közepesen szénsavas, közepesen testes. Íze enyhén édes, benne pörkölt maláta , kevés gyümölcsös fanyarsággal. Utóíze gyengén komlós, édes.

Bottle thanks to sarkynortherner. Dark black colour with thin tan head ok lacing. Aroma is weak roasted malts + metal. Taste is slight roasted malts light bitter watery finish. Thin to medium body medium carbonation. This was ok easy to drink but nothing to get excited about.

Taste was good in first but later it was wetty. Appearance is good and I can easily give my recommendation for this.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
500 ml bottle bought at TASTE in Festival Walk, Kowloon Tong.
Clear opaque Cola black colour; Half finger head and off white foam which last for 1 minute; Good sticky lacing and active carbonation; Aroma of fairly light roasted malt, with light toffee, sugar, light caramel, light chocolate, thin cream, black coffee and hay; Light sweet taste of roasted malt, with light wet cardboard, unsweetened Cola, light black coffee, faint nuts, hint of citrus, liquorices and hay; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is blackish near-water, with related Schwarz tastes like chocolate, toffee, etc are near zero. Even its Coke taste nothing like Diet nor Zero, just completely unsweetened and void. WTF... Hoppiness is hay in nose, thin lemon and straw in taste. Liquorices gives noticeable low bitterness for low-fi finish; Wet after taste, very easy and slightly bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is essentially a Milwaukee’s Best Premium disguised in black - desperately low in aroma, body and palate nearly identical to water, and close to tasteless bar hop extract. Drain pours after half a glass. Avoid!
