ogivlado (6428) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 16, 2010
Bottled 330ml. -Trade with Allen (thanks Julian!). Pitch black coloured, medium sized brown head, malty chocolate nose. Roasted malt, chocolate and prunes and other dried fruits but a bit too sweet. Second Appenzeller beer in last several weeks, and this one is few light years better than Quöllfrisch Hell.

jonas (6141) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2009
Bottle, thanks Allen! Opaque black with a red shine and nice creamy lacing head. Sweet coffee and molassis aroma, porterlike. Agressive caramel and coffee roast start, toasted bread, herbal hops, caramel, burned sugar retronasal. Chewy body, mellow mouthfeel. Lot of flavor in this one, nice!

ekstedt (6032) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2011

McTapps (5853) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Pours out in a very deep black colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of malt and coffee. Surprisingly nice taste of browned butter, malt, vanilla, woods and cake. Hints of brown sugar and light -very light- smoke (something I am allergic to). Nice and buttery finish. Beer got better the more air it got but it still was a little bit average and boring. Solid Schwarzbier though.

MichaelAwesome (5852) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Für ein schwarzbier recht mild und so gar nicht nach Hühnerbrühe schmeckend, doch ansonsten wie ein abgestandenes Export mit dunkler Farbe. Trinkbar und ohne Highlights. Ganz ok.

Erzengel (5644) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Der Antrunk ist vollmundig, herb, trocken. Zum Hauptteil machen sich angenehm verbrannt Röstmalzaromen im Mund breit, sehr angenehme leichte malzigige Süße. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang anhaltend, angenehm malzig-herb-röstmalzig mit einer sehr schönen Milde.
→ Ein sehr leckeres Schwarzbier, allerdings im Nachgeschmack vielleicht einen kleinen Tick zu süßlich. 12/12/11/12

kappldav123 (5510) - GERMANY - MAY 18, 2010
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!

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Bottle @ Beerfest Asia Singapore. Thick black (goes glug glug when poured) with lasting tan head. Inky aroma with iodine and major black molasses. Creamy soft and luscious yet remarkably drinkable and not too potent. Has notes of coffee and chocolate. The interplay between sweet and dry is gorgeous. Well made.
