What a beautifull colour. What a marvellous sound when pouting to glas. It really invites you for a first drink. What a feeling in mouth - small bubbles are really caress tung and palate. But who on earth added some lemon soda in my schwartzen bier?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from the tap on the Mulheim an de Ruhr Bierborse (12/07/2014). Dark brown colour with a lacing foam head. Aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, banana and malts. Taste has some roasted malts, hops and caramels. Sweet aftertaste with medium carbonation. Balanced body with low alcohol. Next one please!

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 50cl. Black with a beige head (which quickly disappear). It has a nice aroma of some "black" and caramel, but the taste is very sweet. Too much for my taste. If it would have had a bitter finish that would compensate the sweet flavour it could be a quite nice beer, but unfortunate no.

Clear dark brown. Small, light beige head. Aroma is sugary sweet, so is the flavour. Metallic hints of ashtray. Terrible.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black with big light brown/gray lacing foam head. Aroma is bit sweet, some smokey notes. Taste initially sweet again, but slowly turning is some light sweetened coffee, some smoke again. Interesting. Sweet aftertaste again. (Velp 201406)

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank with Thijs 19-4-2014. Dark beer, looks good. Taste is disappointing though. Very sweet, unbalanced. Tastes like sweet limonade with slight carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark cognac color with small (not solid) head. Aroma of wine, chocolate, rye bread. Beer with sugar syrup, it makes beer very sweet. Sweetness blocks hops. As for me it would be better without sugar syrup.

Bottle from McTapps, many thanks a lot Sabine. Dark red brown with medium beige head. Sweet dark malty aroma with caramel. Taste start with roasted malt, coffe, but then very quickly sugar arrives, tons of sugar. Oh, Jesus.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
50cl Maruhn, 12/2013. Label mentions use of inverted syrup, ergo no "Bier". Sadly, this still infringement of the Reinheitsgebot means something and the result is a sweet and sticky syrup perversion of a nice and dark dry Schwarz: reddish-brown, artificial glucose notes, roasted fairground nuts, hops smothered in caramel. Neuzeller also produces Badebier - bathe in this and feel your nutsack caramelise.
