Big thanks to Allen for this one. Bottle looks great, as well as the beer in the glass. Deep black, small creamy head. Smoky aroma. Starts strong-malty, modest dry, fine smoky. Finish a little bit sweeter, prickly, wonderful balanced. Very drinkable and good beer!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of and shared with ogivlado (as were the others) who got it in a trade with Allen (thanks both!)
POured a very dark brown-black body with a small off white-tan head. Yoghurty-malty dark malts in the nose, with some raisins as well, remarkably nice. The taste is nicely malty again, raisins and chocolate, sweet, some notes of cappuccino-flavored waffles. Roasty aftertaste. Quite balanced. Not exactly flashy, but still a very tasty schwarzbier!

Pours deep black with a generous tanned head leaving a very nice lacing on the glass. Smoked and roasted malts with sweet fruits aroma. Well balanced malty/hoppy/fruity flavor. Round hoppy/malty on the palate with a dry hoppy/malty very nice finish.

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!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2010 Bottled 33cl. A very dark beer with a nicely remaining full beige head. The aroma is of apples, coffee, hops, cigarette smoke, pumpernickel and marshmallows. The taste is quite similar, but with some coffee showing up. Sweet, full bodied and earthy with some metallic hints. Quite hoppy. A mediocre mouthfeel. The finish is of coffee. Nothing special or outstanding.... Additional comment: Not my kind of beer. Definitely well brewed though. I don’t like the malt profile. Staying with the initial rating.
