Mörkaste brun i färgen med offwhite skum. Doftar mörkt rågbröd, fruktigt med mörka bär, lite choklad och kaffe. Smakar söt mörk malt, lite gräs, karamell, fruktigt med mörka bär. Lätt bitterhet på slutet.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a lively solid but fizzy black with good tan head that stayed well. Aroma dry and of faint espresso. Flavour initially mild espresso but then moves into simple dusty cocoa / dark chocolate notes. After a while than secondary flavour seems chalky. Watery on palate, yet medium body due to lively carbonation, long finish. Overall ok, something to quaff rather than savour. Perhaps a good introduction to dark brews.

Roasted malt nose.
Poured black with not much head.
Mild bitterness with roasted malt finish. Body a bit thin.
Also a touch oxidized.
OK session black beer I guess.

Poured from a tap. Smells like a less salty marmite. As a mainstream beer this is quite enjoyable. Nothing fantastic but has more flavour to it than a lot of other standard monteiths. Smooth finish.

Coarse sustained light brown foam covers a limited aroma of hard roasted malt. The flavor is excellent and contains lots of rich roasted malt tones with a little bit English licorice in the background. It is certainly very tasty and can certainly be equated with many of the best German schwarzbier. Only a slight hoppy bitterness contributes to the long after taste where malt is used to continuously maintain the taste buds. It is certainly worth recommending.

Bottle to pint glass. Lovely dark mahogany, medium head. Some coffee, soy sauce and milk chocolate. A little on the thin side, but flavours were pleasant.

Coming from a warm country, I tend to drink cold beer. This Schwarzbier version has enough flavour to still provide plenty of taste straight from a cold fridge, without making you feel you are drinking a heavy beer. Because it is a lager and not an ale, it still has quite a crisp and clean finish (unlike the dark ales fruity finishes) which means the flavour doesn’t linger as long, but it is more consistent in it’s chocolately / coffee flavour. Good mouthfeel with nice carbonation which provides a nice frothy head if you give it an active pour. Will come down at a moderate pace and leave nice lacing on the glass.
Because of the lack of lingering finish, you do keep going back for more quickly making this quite the session beer - so on the colder nights (only around 12 to 15 degrees Celsius) this is a great beer to polish off with mates, Goes well with chocolate brownies.
