Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 18, 2007
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.

Black with aromas of plum, black treacle and a little liquorice. Light roasty malt flavour along with milk chocolate and a little toffee.

RexTalionis (2427) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle 33 cl from Drink of the worlds, Basel. Poured cola like in colour with foamy beige head. Coffee and roasted malts in aroma with some hints of dark chocolate as well. Flavour roasted malts and coffee mostly. Not so heavy to drink as one would suspect.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Oily, opaque, black with tan ring. Syrup, sweet chocolate liquor aroma, rich, sweet flavour, faint wood, faint dryness. Smooth, full body, hardly any carbonation. Good.

Tasty schwarzbier. Malty, with some herbs and a fresh floral touch. And a cool bottle of course.

finol (2159) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle from Drinks of the World, Zurich. Pours dark brown with a dark tan head. Aroma of rosted malt. A rather sweet doubble bock like malty taste but also some rosted malt and coffee.

Gr0ve (2134) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2009
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.

One of my favorite styles, though this is almost a stout. Creamy with lots of chocolate and coffee, yet still refreshing. Tasty beer bought at Drinks of the World in Zürich.
