This dark brown beverage actually surprised me a little. Aroma of caramels and sweet malts. Taste is easy drinking black caramel juice with a medium carbonation. Surprised.

Bottle. The taste is quite subtle but you can still distinguish sweet malts and even some smoke.

MarkoNm (1895) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 31, 2015
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a medium sized beige colored head, quite lasting. Roasted malt in the aroma, some caramel and chocolate notes in the back. Sweet start, roasty body, quite lightl, some caramel and mild bitterness in the end. Proper schwarzbier, although a bit light. Easily drinkable.

Grisza77 (239) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Ciemne, nieprzejrzyste piwo o obfitej beżowej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie cienkiej warstewki. Aromat trochę mało intensywny kawy zbożowej. W smaku lekko wędzone i kwaskowe. Goryczka niska, ale pozostaje przyjemny kwaskowy posmak. Ogólnie dość dobre i pijalne ciemne piwo, mile mnie zaskoczyło.

visionthing (3886) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2015
50cl can from Prague airport. Pours clear mahogany coloured with a moderate, beige head. Malty aroma with caramel, notes of roasted malt and hints of herbs and dark fruits. Moderate to medium sweet with mild, but nice malty flavours and a light bitterness. Easy to drink and quite tasty - light, but nice.
