thewolf (11843) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2009
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.

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.

Dogbrick (10740) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle at Brasserie Fédéral in Zürich. This brew pours black with a thick light brown head recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is very roasty with notes of coffee and malt, along with some hops in the background. Medium body with a strong roasted coffee character and notes of sweet malt, hops and a touch of anise. The finish is brown sugar and coffee. Pretty good all around.

DSG (10564) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Black-colored with a light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roastiness, a bit of licorice notes and faint alcohol note. Bittersweet roasty flavor with coffee, some dark chocolate and a slightly bitter and slightly burnt finish. Medium-bodied. Nice, kind of a Stout-ish Schwarzbier.

KimJohansen (10408) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
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.
