Deep dark color with a fine off white head. Mostly a bit sweet toffee aroma with some roasted notes. Medium body. A bit unbalanced over to the swet side. Average carbonation. Toffee, some coffee and mild fruity flavor. A bit to sweet, but still easy drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 0,5 liter as dark horse. Good smell and taste, foam is light beige and stays for some minutes, the beer is tasting best when it is around 8-10 degrees in temperature, not the best Schwartzbier, but good for the money and easy-to-drink also.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shared a 50cl bottle from Danish Deli (Luxembourg). Pours a deep dark brown colour with a big thin tan head. Aroma is roasted, red fruits and coffee. Soft to average carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is more sweet than bitter, with some coffee and liquorice notes. Overall, a nice beer but not remarkable, but drinkable though.
