JorgeLee (1793) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of Hermann. Deep dark brown in colour, ruddy, white foam. Well balanced with sweet fruity treacle malt and pleasant hop bitterness. Lakshmi liked this one. All these Fiege brews have been very well made.

markschiedon (596) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2016
Drinking from a 500 ml bottle. In the aroma chocolate, caramel, coffee and cherries. The clear black beer has a medium brown head. The taste doesn’t conflict with the aroma, nicely balanced. Medium carbonated.

22/V/15 - 50cl bottle from a trade @ Brazilian Tasting (home) - BB: 30/V/15 (2015-658) Thanks to Thirstybird for the extra in the trade!

Clear dark brown beer, small creamy light beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very malty, caramel, bit sweet. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of caramel, bit sweet, malty touch, some bitterness, citrus. Aftertaste: pretty hoppy, mocha, caramel, grains, hay, cow fodder, nice roast. Really liked this one. Very surprised about bartlebier’s low rating. Maybe I was just very very thirsty. :p

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2015
50cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Tderoeck and 77ships. BB 30/05/2015. Brune voire cuivrée, col blanc-cassé. Arôme au bouquet légèrement malté, note grillée, un peu de fruité noir perçant en rétro-nasal et rappelant la prune. Palais est maté, grillé, caramel et une pointe de chocolat. Le tout gardant une fine note d’amertume venant d’un houblon noble. Se termine sur une pointe poussiéreuse voire cendre qui reste sèche. Fruité noir reste présent quoique léger en fin de bouche.

ThirstyBird (2617) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Pours Like a glass of cola with a large tan head. The smell is dull roasted malt, molasses. The taste is rich roasted malt, molasses ending dry and crisp. Light+ in body with fine carbonation. Nice stuff.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2015 50cl fliptop bb05/2015, cheers McTapps. Stale aroma of wet cardboard sheets glued together by cheap industrial honey, soggy wort. Taste adds some roast aromatics, never really delving into real charred black Schwarzbier territory, evoking more cheap sugared milk chocolate drink than coffee and dark chocolate, with a pancake syrupy edge. Strange metallic blood quality to the mouthfeel, as if enriched with hemoglobine. Despite all of this pretty drinkable and not offensively bad, just off the Schwarz mark.

Moravius (1130) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2014
Bügelverschlußflasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Sehr tiefes, ins Schwarze reichendes Rubinrot, reichlich beigefarbener Schaum. - Die Nase ist mild malzsüß-röstmalzig, leider auch mit deutlichen Noten von Pappe oder Tapetenkleister, wie man sie von Billigbieren kennt. - Der Antrunk ist für ein Schwarzbier überraschend weich und füllig; bestimmend ist eine weiche Malzsüße mit schönen Noten von Röstmalz: Kaffee, Bitterschokolade, Nuß. Mild rezent, kremig und weich im Mund. Im Abgang wird es doch noch schön trocken mit leicht erdig-holziger Bittere; auch fruchtige Hopfennoten huschen kurz über die Zunge. - Etwas unentschlossenes Bier: beginnt wie ein Dunkles und entsinnt sich erst gegen Ende der Vorstellung, daß es eigentlich ein Schwarzbier sein möchte ... Der gute Abgang rettet es noch. Wäre da nur nicht der üble Geruch ...
