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 (844) - 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.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
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 !

Bottle at Bruce’s - London. Big thanks to the host. Pours deep, red-brown with a creamy beige head. Dusty cocoa on the nose,some brown bread. Light sweet flavor, bready and toasty malts, milk chocolate, mild earth. Light bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Milk chocolate on the finish, more toasty brown bread. Very well rounded.

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.
