Dark black beer with a quickly diminishing head. Creamy, chocolate aroma. Very malty and smooth. I lighter tasting dark beer. An excellent crisp, hoppy finish.

Quite enjoyed this. WOuldn’t tush out and buy a carton or anything, but the flavour was evident right from the start. Slight chocolatey taste at first and quite roasty afterwards.

Prominent chocolate aroma and taste. The pick of the MOnteiths line up for me - I was quite partial to the Krystall, but that was last years brew, and this years is not quite to the same standard.

Pours a deep red/black with a head that lasts as long as a brides nightie. Some chocolate and coffee notes apparent in the restrained nose. Body is slighty thin IMO. Big chocolate flavour, with a light bitter finish - slightly one dimensional, but I still like it. Could some pub put this on tap for me in Brisbane please?

A bit of a musty chocolate smell to this one. Appearance is almost black, with no head at all! There is a slight roastiness to the mouthfeel but not a great deal of depth. Not a bad beer though.

Deep dark malts, bit of chocolate and a touch of dry hoppiness. Super dark with a head that laces. bit of sweet then coffee flavour. Rather nice beer. I think I'd enjoy drinking this of a friday evening after work.

The aroma is sweet caramelic with notes of roasted bread. The color is dark brown and it has a small disappearing head. The flavor is of caramel, roasted malt, and a light maltyness, before it ends on an OK bitterness. The body is thin. A boring schwarzbier.

It's a little too watery but then on the other hand, possesses a mild chocolate flavour which is quite pleasant.
Nothing much, as far as I can tell, aroma-wise; besides a little more suble chocolate and water.
It's appearance is that of a mild Cola with a nice slightly brownish-white head which lasts only approx. 20 seconds.
Anyway, after a few attempts at enjoying this brew, I've decided that it's actually quite good.

Flat looking black beer with a good coffee aroma, but a fairly weak malty flavour. Overall a plain dark beer.
