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.

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.

Sweet taste, again lots of toasted malts, even more chocolate now, light coffee and mocha, molasses.

Pours black with a frothy beige head. Aroma is sweet malts and slightly roasted. Taste is slightly roasty, slightly syrupy which is a turnoff and sweet.

Bottle; pours a very dark brown with a beige head; aroma is sweet with sugar, caramel, and a little roasted malt; taste is very sweet, almost overpowering, of sugar with hints of coffee and roasted malt; has a dry bitter finish; would be better if it was not so sweet

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2014 So this beer was the reason for the "Brandenburg beer war". Dark brown colour, beige head. Weak aroma of bread, some hay, coffee. Very sweet taste, due to the added syrup - hints of candied sugar, some chocolate, not much more. Would have probably been a lot better without the syrup.

Gammalt tyskt munkrecept. Mörkt bröd socker, mörkt sirap, russin å mogna frukter. Ganska bra Schwarzbier inte lika bra som köstritzer i min mening. Lite för söt för min smak men ändå god att njuta av.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, very dark brown color, firm tan head. Roasted nose. Aroma is sweet, and slightly hoppy. Flavour is somehow out of balance and very sweet with covered hops. Too thin for its sweetness.
