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.

Marko (4540) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 8, 2010
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!

RichardGretton (4524) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle. Pitch black beer with a strong wispy light brown head. The aroma is sweetly roasted with a gentle hint of bitterness. The flavour is mildly malty and roasted coffee. Overall a nice malty roasted dark beer.

nearbeer (4473) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2009
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!
