Dark brown nearly black in color with a thin, firmly packed foamed cocoa brown head, minimal spotty lacing and a bit of a fluffy/bubbly collar stays seemingly present throughout the session. Aroma is mild but welcome of a nice calming chocolate; within lays some coffee roast and dark toffee. The coffee aroma takes over considerably as it warms. Flavors are smooth, easy, and calm; very mild chocolate in tone, not withstanding much punch or character really. Clean, and respectably so, bits of espresso-like coffee and some roasted semi-sweet malts, but not in any real noticeable capaticy or level to excite the taste buds. I’m most impressed with its cleanness but not so much its overall flavor character. Feel is just shy of medium with a low carbonation and weakened body of sweetness that tries to elude to something but never quite developes. Drys slightly after finishing with some coffee and chocolate;unbittered in variety. An easy and clean little drinkin’ porter with an easy kickback flow of smoothness but lacks some in the taste dept. to keep a significant intrigment.

Dark, almost black. Light-brown head. Low head. Burnt notes in the aroma. Flavor has the taste of burnt bread. Sweet.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Deep, dark black coloration, nice, if slim head of cocoa/ tan foam above. Aroma: creamy, cocoa, espresso, but delicious, nice and roasty, bits of cocoa and coffee, nutty, and, um, mmm! Taste: awfully smooth, not leaning too hard on the awful, just real easy, if you know what i mean, ...gritty, full-bodied, big feel on the palate..tasty, which is to say, taaaa-steeee!!! The mouthfeel/body is medium, and the finish is long and sweet, flush with cocoa and caramel...bit too sweet for a real porter, but for an Eastern (or more Eastern than England) European porter, good enough, perhaps... beyond expectations or anticipations, this is a dandy drink, a truly tasty dark brew, delicious...hey, more i drink it, more I like it...and the more it tastes like a true porter....not bad at all!

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Dark black with hints of red, a thin tan head and nicce lacing. Great aroma - chocolate, malt, roast, freshness. Palate starts out very vinous with sweet plum notes then becomes chocolate cherry coffee and burning roastyness and hoppy bitterness. Finish is long and sweeter. This seems to be much stronger than it tastes. Very surprising!

Very malty nose. Dark brown almost black, dark tan head. Roasty flavor, clean, but a little weak.

Quite powerful schwarzbier. I like this one. It is a good idea to put some extra alcohol in the schwarzbier style.

Bottle. Small tan head, good lacing, no visible carbonation, opaque, and a black hue. Malty, chocolate, coffee, roasty, burnt aroma. Sweet, chocolate, malty, smooth flavor. Aroma outweighs the flavor IMO. Smooth and dry mouthfeel. Medium bodied.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2004
Black color with little or no head. The taste is sweet light roasted malts. Pretty much a standard schwarzbier.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2004
Bottle. Black with fast disappearing head. Sweet, liqourice, raisins, wine. Low carbonation. Half a litre is more than enough.
