1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is pure awful candy beer. Seriously, I would like to take the brewer of this beer and stick his head in a bucket of hops and keep it there until his body absorbed enough that his mere proximty to the brewing process would ensure that this never happens again. I am not sure how this beer has ratings as high as it does. One of the few beers that I have not enjoyed at some level.

Bottle 500 ml, pours dark brown with no head. In aroma slightly coffee with a lot of cooked vegetables. Extremly sweet and nothing more. Leave a sour aftertaste. Undrinkable. Spilled away.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pechschwarz mit einem hellen schönen Schaum. Schöne Aromen vom Röstmalz, etwas Kaffee.
Geschmack recht süß (enthält Invertzuckersirup!), malzig, etwas rauchig. Erinnert an das Störtebeker Hanse-Porter.

Far too sweet, I much prefer a bitterer beer. Granted I generally havent enjoyed the schwarz beers I have had so maybe I should just avoid the category altogether.

Bottle 500 ml. Dark with ruby. Pleasant aroma: sweetness, caramel, light smoke from burned sugar and malt, a little coffee and cake. Sweet taste with caramel, instant coffee, liquorice and sugar candy with a slight bitterness. Beer for dessert or ice cream.

German trip 2010: A ok Schwarzbier. Rather thin and watery. Remind me of a UK bitter with gas and less body.

(Neuzeller Schwarzer Abt (Black Abbot)) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a glass tankard, ABV 3.9%
Dark brown colour on the boy with deep red hues, tall and thick, creamy, tan head, with very good retention, leaving medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, light chocolate.
Sweet taste, again lots of toasted malts, even more chocolate now, light coffee and mocha, molasses.
Medium thin body, low carbonation. Slightly sticky on the palate.
Very drinkable this one.
