This pours a near opaque black with touches of red around the edges. Creamy Mocha head that gives off an aroma of toasted marshmallows with a hint of fruit. The flavor is intensely sweet with a roast malt background. Not a good Schwarzbier, weird sweetness, but some will like this

ha1ag (712) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2014
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.

Taboada (311) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUL 14, 2014
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!

Moolesen (190) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
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.

vipinvelp (2130) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2014
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)

Maarten1993 (288) - - APR 20, 2014
Drank with Thijs 19-4-2014. Dark beer, looks good. Taste is disappointing though. Very sweet, unbalanced. Tastes like sweet limonade with slight carbonation.

Dzhigga (119) - Kirov, RUSSIA - MAR 25, 2014
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.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein schwarzes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, erdig, leicht würzig. Geschmack röstmalzig, leichte Kaffe Aromen, erdig, trocken malzig, leicht süß.

Cuso (4417) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 13, 2014
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.
