Bottled (thanks Bov!). Deep rubyish brown/close to black colour, mediumsized brown creamy head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, slightly roasted malts and some spicyness. Flavour is smoked wood, some caramel malts and yeast. A mild, but quite wellbalanced brew.

thewolf (10767) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2009
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.

Marko (3766) - 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!

nazzty (820) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2013
Tart and good with burnt flavors, great body and a creamier texture than German schwarzbier.

JorisPPattyn (7715) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2007
Black beer with dark beige head. Coffee, a bit cheesy, faraway chocolate & tobacco aromas. Some hops, lots of coffee, chocolate and a very dry aftertaste. Nearly full-bodied, pretty thick, certainly for a ’Schwarzbier’. Nice beer, curious about the category - lots of characteristics of mild, non-sweet stout! Danke, Herrn Unterseeer
