Black,. yellow brown foam that lasts. Sour aroma with a hint of burned malt. Thick with low carbon. Malty taste with a little fruit. Strong aftertaste, coffee and chocolate that lasts somewhat. Not a typical scwarzbier and not well balanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Roasty malts, which give off a powdery cocoa, light coffee vibe. A little earthy/herbal with the hops, which are light overall. Appearance: Garnet black, inky pour with a bubbly mocha head that dissipates almost completely. Flavor: Matches the nose; pretty dried out all around; hops are more earthy, almost woody. Palate: Light body, oily-ish texture, very soft carbonation, bitter finish. A little hot. Overall: An above-average Schwarz.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Deep and rich, I can see why this could be placed under the Baltic Porter category,even though it explicitly states that it is a Scwarrzbier on the label. Big, doughy brown chocolate, luscious and rich, smooth and clean. Sugary and sweet, but fits the style well here. Easy on the palate still, has that cloudy, doughy lightness. Excellent beer, a Schwarz/Baltic Porter hybrid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Dark aroma of coffee, chocolate, malt, and caramel. Bitter. roasty flavour, with notes of coffee, giving way to sweetish touches of malt, chocolate and liquorice. Mildly bitter and roasty finish. Rather hogh carbonation. I don’t quite know what it is. The label says Schwarzbier, Ratebeer says Baltic Porter, I think it tastes like something in between these two. It’s good, though. I hope it doesn’t kill me :-)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great bubbles and mouth feel. The burnt chocolate and coffee flavors are over bearing though.
