3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
From the archive, bottle bought in Luxembourg. Malziger, leicht röstiger Geruch. Das Bier beginnt malzig-trocken, etwas wässrig. Die malzige Note wird im Hauptteil deutlicher, dabei frisch-süffig (besonders durch den dünnen Körper), kaum süß, aber angenehm schwarzbierig-röstig. Der Nachgeschmack ist mittellang, recht sehr wässrig, aber trotzdem nicht zu aromen-arm.
Insgesamt nicht schlecht! 10/12/9/10

[Bottle] Coca-cola colored pour without much fizz. Aroma of caramel and cocoa powder. Taste includes dusty malts, caramel, molasses, light nut and vanilla notes. Mild earthy notes in the finish. Body is about what I expected. Tasting notes from early 2012.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco. Consumed at home. Very dark brown. Decent carb and a small beige head. Aroma of smoke, chocolate malt, seawater. Taste is more of a let-down: sweet and salty with an artificial taste, almost like corn syrup. Weak, watery mouthfeel. Salty aftertaste. Odd but passable,

Label Didnt clearly indicate this was a schwartzbier - thought it was going to be a stout. Good for its genre but not what I was hoping for.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 500ml. A deep brown colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt and plum. Flavour has malt, caramel and some fresh hop notes. A little thin on the palate. Moderate carbonation. A little bitterness in the finish. Perfectly drinkable but could be much better.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Lovely pour of dark cola and nut brown head. Head dies much too quickly, but what there is is nice. Aroma of caramel, peanuts, bakery, and toffee. But that’s is where the fun ends. The mouth feel is much too light, and the texture is very watery. This doesn’t drink like a dark beer at all. It seems more like a light beer on the palate. Flavor is watered down, aftertaste is nonexistant. Meh.
