Fairly light brown for a dunkel with a head that lasts nicely through the glass. Smooth with some bitterness in the finish but no complexity. Drinkable but bland.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark brown colour with a nice white head that stayes for a while. Aroma of coffee, spruce and some yeast. Flavour is pretty much the same. Low carbonation, and an okey mouthfeel. A very okey beer, nothing more.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (Systembolaget, Stockholm)
Dark, and with a dark beige head. Sweet sickly roast aroma, treacle. More burnt in the taste, quite dry, not ashy though. Full palate, a little slick. Finish hasa a metallic tingle and is very dry. This is too harsh even if the first instant it was in your mouth it was briefly good. And what the heck is the commercial description supposed to mean? And where did it come from? That’s not what it says on the label. I may not know much spanish, but I know it didn’t say that. (It mentioned that it was a premium product, a dark munich style, with a chocolately taste, amongst other things.)

Nice brown head, quite black. Roasted caramel, cornflakes, nice but a little simple. Somebody and length. Semisweet with roasted malts, cornflakes, very pleasant in spite of being only 5,5 %

At Barcellona - El Prat airport. A good schwarz beer, with a black body and small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and ripe fruits. Taste is bitter like coffee. To be a "macro", it’s quite good.
