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!

Tart and good with burnt flavors, great body and a creamier texture than German schwarzbier.

33 cl bottle in a tall schooner. Malty aroma of caramel, coffee. pours a clear dar, dark brown with a big dark tan, frothy head that lingers and leaves strong lacing. Sweet and tangy like espresso with some sugar. Round and malty flavors too. A full body, lively, with a nice, lingering, pleasantly bitter finish. My favorite Schwarzbier yet.

(Flasche) Es hat eine undurchsichtige, dunkelbraune Farbe und eine braune Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist röstig, leicht rauchig, mit Karamell und etwas frisch gemalenem Malz. Der Geschmack ist sehr röstig, eher schlank, etwas nach Asche, Rauch und Treibholz. Die Bittere scheint vom Röstmalz zu kommen und der Abgang ist schlank und angenehm.

JorisPPattyn (7910) - 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

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - APR 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown colour. Aroma of roasted malt, some liquorice and chocolate. Nice filling mouthfeel. The flavour has some sweetness with roasted malt, dark fruits, chocolate and bit of smoke. Nice!

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle. Dark body with a thick brown head. The aroma is smokey, with coffee and chocolate and butterscotch. The taste is full and very long. Oily and foamy texture. I love the coffee tones rising in the finish.
