This is a nice lighter tasting dark schwartzbeer (dark beer). It’s smooth and flavorful. Not like a porter or a stout, but better than the typical Euro Dark. Nice session dark beer at only 3.8% ABV. This is refreshing in any season! Sure, I’ll have another...

Oleg85 (50) - Yaroslavl, RUSSIA - FEB 3, 2016
L: The color is really black, so black i couldn’t see anything through it. Head is 2-3 fingers tall, looks thick, but diappears quick without lacing. S: Caramel, raisins, metal (!?). T: Rhy bread crust. A bit sour and bitter finish. F: Light to medium-bodied, low carbonation. O: Nice. I like there’s no sweetness, but the taste is weak.

Rask0lnikov (162) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 5, 2016
Dark brown colour. Nice white head, which stays quite long time. Slight caramel and hints of coffee in the aroma. Watery beginning. Roasted malts and caramel in the middle. Bitter finish. Light bodied, high carbonated, watery dark beer. Maybe appropriate to drink in the sauna half a bottle just to releive thurst.
