3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Løgismose, Cph.
Pours almost black; only some slight brown edges. A great, large, creamy, cappucino head. Aroma is sweet, some Belgian sugars, lots of roasted malts and chocolate. A light ashy note as well. Medium, pcrickly carbonation, good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is relatively sweet at first, some caramel and milky chocolate. But the finish is really nice, lots of darker chocolate, roasted malts and a long, lingering dry note with fresh ground coffee. Very nice.

330 ml bottle. Dark brown, almost black. Coarse light beige head. Acidic dark roasted malt aroma. The flavour is much the same with acidic dark malts. Hints of toffe. Reminds me a little of a thin imperial stout. Not particularly good though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl, bb Aug 09. Opaque with a lasting quarter-inch of cream above. Aromas of coffee, char, anise, metal, dry cocoa and light caramel. Well-balanced tastes of charred wood, espresso, bittersweet chocolate, anise, vanilla, caramel, and tart apple. Maybe some hints of oat and lactose as well. Heavy body is slightly watery, smoothly drinkable with light carbonation, and roasty-dry. Thanks to Allen for this one!

Bottle. Dark body with a thick brown head. The aroma is smokey, with coffee and chocolate and butterscotch. The taste is full and very long. Oily and foamy texture. I love the coffee tones rising in the finish.

Dark brown with red glimts and a wonderfull huge dark beige head. Stuuning appearance. Sweet aroma with loads of roasted malt, coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Sweet flavour with loads of burned malt, coffee, chocolate and liqeurice. Absolutely lovely schwarzbeer. But I would call it a stout.
