Riecht nur ein wenig malzig. Der Geschmack ist wässrig nicht stark. Im nachgeschmack kommt der karamellige malz Geschmack etwas raus.

ClubGonzo (5422) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle. Dark chocolate body, big cloudy light beige head. Nose is sour-ish vinegar-like ashy tones with hints of dark chocolate. Weird. Taste is light acidic chocolate with hints of licorice and ashes, which somehow workds really well. Full body, medium carbonation which is more than I had expected. Surprisingly nice for what is essentially a kind of weird schwartz.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Mittelmäßige Schaumkrone. Nicht so süß wie viele andere Schwarzbiere, Lakritzgeschmack der bei diesem aber nicht so dolle schmeckt, bisschen herb. Außerdem geht´s ins süß-säuerliche vor allem im Nachgeschmack. Habe das Gefühl das mir das Bier ein bisschen im Hals stecken bleibt, was wohl am Brauwasser liegt. Fazit: Nicht so toll, knapp unterm Durchschnitt. Test vom 11.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,8,7,7,9,8 - 8,05

mzaar (2799) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2012
Mahognyfärgad, stort smutsvitt skum. Jag letar och jag letar, kupar händerna runt glaset - förgäves. Aromen är så svag att nästan inget uppfattas. Dock örter och kol. Kanske för att jag fick den på fat? Smakar bättre: karamell, jordkällare, lingon. Påminner lite om julmust faktiskt.

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2012
Nov 2006 from BA: When I left Berlin in 1990, just after the wall came down, this beer was unheard of. Black beers were not popular in the West, only a few East German breweries kept up the tradition of this style. How pleased and surprised I was to be given this half litre bottle by my wife, after she had revisited the city with some friends. A real dark ruby, almost truely black colour, with a fine light brown foaming head, which sadly disappeared very quickly after my first mouthfull. No great smell, burnt caramel, malt and mushrooms, in that order. Fizzy, full bodied and slightly sweet, I liked it. Aftertaste stays with you longer than the head did, a kind of burnt maltyness lingers in the back of your mouth, which I enjoyed. Very drinkable, I am going back to Berlin, early 2007 and hope to find this on tap somewhere, a second review will be posted if I do.
