Flaska. Svart öl med ett gediget beigt skum. Dofter av kaffe, choklad och trä. Smakinslag av soja, choklad, smör och rostad malt. Mjuk munkänsla, medelbeska, lätt sälta i avslutningen. Mycket trevlig.

oh6gdx (24588) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2007
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.

Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Coffee, earth, metal and peppery taste with minty sooty notes. Dry-sweetish ashy sooty chocolatey taste with minty cocoa notes. Nice, balanced, mild. (0.33l bottle from Allen.)

thewolf (11931) - 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.

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.

17Beer (185) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 20, 2014
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.
