MichaelAwesome (3558) - Wanne-Eickel, 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 (3558) - 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.

Flesje uit de coop in Luzern. Bijna zwarte kleur en een redelijke kraag. Ruikt goed, aangebrand, stroop, zoetig, cacaomelk. Smaakt redelijk vol, weinig koolzuur , donkergebrande mout, cacao , koffie. Dit smaakt niet als een Schwarzbier maar als een porter. Goed spul.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Bruce for this one. Opaque dark beer, good pale tan head. Softish airy palate with light carbonation. Airy - creamy dark malt, no roast or bitterness. Gets papery in th mid. Light dry finish. One dimensional and a touch papery.

Tart and good with burnt flavors, great body and a creamier texture than German schwarzbier.

TheJvd (781) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours almost pitch black with a small to medium brown head. Aroma is milk chocolate, lactose, some coffee and only very faint roast. Taste is quite sweet, milk chocolate, slight roast and a very soft bitterness. Medium body and carbo. Quite a smooth texture. Not sure what to think of this, because it is not really a schwarz. More like a porter, but not a very good one.
