danielecamo (521) - ITALY - MAR 6, 2014
In bottiglia. Aroma di tostato persistente, nocciola, frutta secca, leggero affumicato. Al palato morbida, rotonda con sentori di tostato, cioccolato, nocciola e un amaro dato dal malto che ben bilancia la birra. Ben fatta.

Sissio (708) - Orsenigo, ITALY - MAR 2, 2014
Pours dark brown, clear, brown rich head, but not persistent. Light medium malts, light sweetness, coffee, roasted malts, caramel and aromatic hop notes very equilibrated. Taste: light sweetness, smooth malts to roasted malts (coffe, raw cocoa seeds, licorice) greatly balanced with the aromatic hop component. Exquisetly equilibrated.

Absolutbeerginer (26) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bière très foncée (quasi noire) mais brillante. Une apparence intéressante qui pourtant ne cache pas beaucoup de subtilités. Faible richesse aromatique au nez. Terre, café certes, couverture de cheval, chien mouillé. Ne devrait pas être servie dans des verres à dégustation. En bouche, cette lager sombre est heureusement plus intéressante. Le malt et rien que le malt domine. Le malt torréfié donne une certaine amertume, un goût de brûlé avec des notes de café. Corps moyen, texture sèche, la finale est amère et sucrée. Enfin, la longueur en bouche est plutôt moyenne à courte.

Aroma: Bread and toasted malts. Appearance: black, medium brown head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: fully body, medium carbonation, first sweet again, then very light bitterness appearing in the finish. Overall: nice Schwarzbier, not too heavy. Bottle at Shishabar Thun, Switzerland.

MichaelAwesome (4566) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Für ein schwarzbier recht mild und so gar nicht nach Hühnerbrühe schmeckend, doch ansonsten wie ein abgestandenes Export mit dunkler Farbe. Trinkbar und ohne Highlights. Ganz ok.

McTapps (4566) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Pours out in a very deep black colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of malt and coffee. Surprisingly nice taste of browned butter, malt, vanilla, woods and cake. Hints of brown sugar and light -very light- smoke (something I am allergic to). Nice and buttery finish. Beer got better the more air it got but it still was a little bit average and boring. Solid Schwarzbier though.
