17Beer (117) - 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.

(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.

Gracijani (5) - Beograd, SERBIA - JUL 25, 2015 does not count
Too heavy on palate. Too strong aftertaste. But quite Intriguing. Caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasty, raisin.

JorisPPattyn (8570) - Ursel, 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

Tranquillity (1454) - 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.

RexTalionis (3108) - 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.
