The full-flavoured beer with a fine and malty taste.

Un plaisir noir avec une marque grillée.

ElDesmadre (2153) - Mikołów, POLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle. Caramelly, grainy beer with notes of stale coffee. Some prune additionally in the flavour. Watery, dry, with an unpleasant, astringent bitterness. And there it goes, down the drain.

PawelD (309) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Aromat mocno zbożowy, lekka czekolada. Kolor czarna smoła nieprzejrzyste, bujna betonowa piana do ostatniego łyka. Piwo słodkie, bardzo bogaty kawowo czekoladowy smak, lecz brak jakiejkolwiek goryczki goryczki. Wysycenie średnie. Bardzo dobre i pijalne piwo dla miłośników czegoś słodszego aczkolwiek nie nachalnego.

Toomio (323) - Joensuu, FINLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Maku hyvä, mutta liian laiha. Aivan hyvä maanantai-iltaan. Häjyt ja jumitus Sapsussa.

Speedy_Charly (126) - Plaisance, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
Bouteille de 330ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Robe foncée avec reflets de rubis surmontée d’un col beige assez épais et persistant. Arôme de sucre brûlé et de malt. Caramel et mélasse avec des notes de citron, cette noire se laisse boire assez allègrement pour terminer sur une finale légèrement acidulée mais un peu pauvre côté houblon.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Appears black. Thick texture. Foamy brown head. Smells like molasses and sweetfeed. Tastes like molasses, sweetfeed, stone amd.water. way too sweet for.a man to drink. Was this meant for adolescent children?

Dark color with thin white head and crisp taste with a flavor similar to Heineken but in a darker form. Overall good dark German type ale

Easy drinking dark beer. Malty taste with some citrous and smoked taste. Ok

Zarkam (529) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
500ml bottle, very dark brown colour, medium fizzy tan head, good lacing. Moderately malty roasty aroma of coffee, chocolate and caramel with light foloral hops. Taste is initally blanced bittersweet and slightly acidic, turning into a mildly bitter finish with an acetic and moderately burnt feel. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. Fairly tasty but unsurprising schwarzbier, could’ve been a bit hoppier.

Kita (1372) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear dark brown color with small creamy tan-like head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, licorice and a bit of smoke. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and roasted malt, follows by grainy sourness, a bit plain mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Pretty average schwarzbier...
