500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
7 Super rich, slightly chocolatey, roasty aroma.
5- Very dark red, just some ruby glints through it, lovely tight, fairly persistent, thick tan head.
7- Solid roasty body, slightly milky and again chocolatey. Hint of real burntness too. Very pleasant, even though it’s not a very complex.
4 Smooth palate, full-feeling and succulent in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Finish is mostly the richly roasted grains. Some slight bitterness from burntness and hops accompany that.
13 Pretty solid schwartz, fortunately less sweet that many others we’ve had. Good one.

Near black body with gray-brown head. Aroma is coffee, moderately sweet. Taste is sugared coffee, with cream even -- not as oversweetened as the Black Abbot (thank goodness), but still too sweet for my taste.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2004
Black beeer with a nice reddish hue, with a light collapsing moka head. Chocolate vinous aroma with a touch of fresh air. Pleasant caramle malts, some nice little hops, some vanilla. Bodied is lighter than expected but the beer is thoroughly enjoyable. Sweetness is increased by camembert, which alos refreshes the beer even more. A big thanks to Maibockaddict, who recommend a slow sipping session, which i am doing right now, after a day of biking!!! Haaaaa.

bierkoning (12383) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2006
Deep dark brown, almost opague. Roasted malt and anis in the aroma. Pours a huge head. Soft malty sweet flavor with anis and mint. Roasted malt. Looks a bit like a Belgian sweet stout, but I like this beer better.

thewolf (12079) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2006
Almost completely black, but lets in a ruby-red flicker of light. Dense creamy head. Aroma is peppery, roasted and with some caramel. Low to medium carbonated. Taste is filled with caramel and roasted tones. Some smoke is in there as well, and so is a touch of final bitterness.

Bov (11973) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 30, 2008
pours a very dark brown colour with an elusive foam; aroma of caramel with strange vegetal notes; sweet and light-bodied with a solid carbonation; no bitterness and a short and quite watery caramelish aftertaste
