3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with an off-white head. Aroma of smoke, toffee and some herbal notes. Flavour of light bready malts, milk chocolate, smoke, tar and quite bitter hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a finish of malts and some smoke. Too light mouthfeel but other than that quite good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kaadettaessa lasiin näyttää mustalta ja beigevaahtoiselta. Kuitenkin valoa vasten katsottaessa paljastuu, että ihan pikimustasta oluesta ei tietenkään ole kysymys. Tuoksussa on toffeeta, paahtunutaa mallasta ja kermakahvia. Maussa on paahtunutta mallasta, katkeraa humalaa ja hieman sokerista makeutta. Melkoa pehmeää juotavaa ja hiilihappoja on melko keskiverto määrä. Miellyttävä vaihtoehto esim. Prykmestar Schwarzille.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from The Grove Huddersfield. Not expecting this to be super fresh as they were selling it off cheap. Black with dark brown edges and thick dark beige head. Its a decent schwarz not too sweet. Some ok malts. Its fine. Easy drinking and in fact what you could call mild.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark amber with a nice typical small head. Aroma really malty, as well as the taste. Really overwhelms the product, which is god or bad depending who you ask. Do I have to eat after this? Not Bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 01.11.2012
Back label has BBE text in Finnish and Sweden. However, the BBE marking is not there but on the front label.
Aroma is malty and a bit grainy with chocolate, coffee and hints of metal. Flavour has coffee and chocolate with hints of metal that becames stronger in the finish. Some caramel also occurs at the end of the glass. Nice schwartz, but the metalliness disturbs a bit.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
So you can drink this stuff or take a bath in it, whichever your fancy. Personally, I am drinking it but if there is ever a RateBathWater.com, I’m there. This is sort of a flat, dark, watery lager. The nose has a hint of sourness but it does not come through in the flavor, which is predominantly dark malts and cardboard. This is an unfortunately bland beer and much of the flavor that is there is bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Clear dark brown to black pour, solid off-white head. Aroma is roasted, somewhat creamy, a hint of chocolate and dark fruits. Flavor is bitter roasted, quite dry, somewhat spicy an a bit watery. Decent balance and very well drinkable. Nice brew.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Like most from this brewery it is almost like an extract brew. It has some nice roasted notes but is otherwise un-memorable.
