Butelka. Aromat słodko słodowy, z wyczuwalną palonością. Ciemnobrązowe z rubinowymi przebłyskami, klarowne. Piana grubopęcherzykowa. Smak lekko słodowy, ogólnie dość pusty. Goryczka niska. Średnia pełnia, średnio-wysokie nagazowanie.

50 cl can. Very dark reddish mahogany in front of a bright lightbulb, thin beige to tan head. Aromas of dark malt, caramel and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. "Dark" flavours of dark malt, caramel, coffee and some dark fruit at the back. Long and rich aftertaste.

Quite black appearance with lots of foam that disappears after a while. Tastes of brown banana, sweet malt and some caramel and hops. Medium body, bubbly carbonation and a finish of dark chocolate. Tasty, still refreshing.

0,5 l can. Aroma is sweet malty. Taste is the same but with some metalic taste as well. A freh bitterness in the end. This beer is ok, but not much more than that.

Deep ruby highlights and a tan head. Aroma roasty and sweet. Taste roasty, clean, with a slight metallic note. Not fabulous.

olsvammel (4939) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2015
Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2015. Light smell with a dark malty aroma. Similar taste with some chocolate. Clean and drinkable but not the best schwarzbier I’ve tried. Too mild.

tandembrauer (886) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2015
Can at home. Pours dark brown with dense beige head. Distinct aroma of DMS, especially right after opening the can. Dark bread, grains, chocolate, some roasted notes. Some sweetness, but well balanced. Bitter finish.

A fine example of a German Schwarzbier. Crisp taste, very clean, easily drinkable.
