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!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
