gunser (55) - HUNGARY - JAN 17, 2014
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.

500ml bottle at home. Pours dark brown, minimal tan head. Faint aromas of sugar and generic maltiness. More dark sugar on the taste, light herbal bitterness. Medium body, clean finish. OK.

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.

GoufCustom (825) - HONG KONG - DEC 4, 2013

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!

From a 11.2 FL.OZ bottle, I smell lite roasted coffee and faint wood. I taste smoky wood, brown sugar, some caramel and malt.

piscator34 (1968) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
Draft sample. Near black in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of sulfur, pils malt, mild chocolate and a bit of roast. Very mild classic German Pilsner flavour, with a bit of chocolate and light roast coffee on the back end. Light bodied with a quick mineral-like finish. Not overly complex, but not bad at all
