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?

Zarkam (526) - 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, couldíve been a bit hoppier.

Kita (1348) - 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...

UXO (674) - CANADA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a deep cola brown with two fingers of fluffy tan head, decent retention and well-defined moderate lacing. Nose is dark roasted malts, caramel and molasses, slightly smoky. Taste is light malt, hint of smoke, mild bitter finish. Mouth feel is watery, light body and moderate carbonation. So... itís a... slightly smokey... dark... lager... with a little bitter on the finish? Itís OK, I guess - better than an adjunct lager - but itís not something Iíd go looking for again.
