2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very dark chocolate color but not biter at all, it was actually very watery for my taste although it has a beautiful crown.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The body is a very dark brown with a medium khaki colored head. The aroma is sweetened coffee with some molasses. The taste has some lightly roasted coffee with some bread crust. There is also a hint of unsalted roasted peanut shells. This is a light bodied beer that I like more than many of the European made Schwarzbiers I have had before. Those were too sweet. This is more balanced with some roast and the sweetness is reasonable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a dark brown to black color, some red hues when held to light. Head was nice and had decent retention, no special lacing. The aroma was grainy with some light roast and a touch of bubblegum. Flavor was licorice, light coffee roast, light bubblegum, light nuts, some bready/cardboardy notes, as well. Mouthfeel was moderate to light for the style and the finish was dry with a lightly sweet touch in the aftertaste.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark amber in color with virtually no head. I smell just a little bit of yeast and the lightest hint of malt in the aroma and nothing else. It has a light caramel flavor from the malt, slightly dryer grain malt and just a small amount of hops. It is light in body and is also a little watery. Overall the flavor is on the light side for a Swarzbeir compare to some I’ve tried in Germany. Maybe the bottle states it is a light beer in Czech and I just can’t read it.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours to an opaque dark brown with just a hint of ruby, and thick tan head that shrinks quickly to fair lacing. Try as I might, it was difficult to detect much of any aroma at all. Although body was thin and slightly watery, there was a nice chocolate-caramel flavor with a hint of malty sweetness. Finish was smooth and fairly long lasting. I just picked this up on a whim....glad I did. Not a bad beer at all.
