31st July 2013
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Bruce’s. It pours near black with a thick tan head. The nose is roasty, cocoa, earth, milk chocolate, lactose and wood. The taste is roasted malt, earth, toasted caramel, dark fruit, coffee, earth, plum and spice with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Smooth, well-integrated and pretty tasty.

If you like schwarzbier, you’ll like this one ! I is a little hard on the taste, but goes beautifully with food. I’d drink it again any time !

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of my favorite styles, though this is almost a stout. Creamy with lots of chocolate and coffee, yet still refreshing. Tasty beer bought at Drinks of the World in Zürich.
