bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2010
Dark brown body, almost black with a lasting light tan head. Nose is a little sweet, milk chocolate, coffee and a hint of smoke. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with just some bitterness helping out.

50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Very dark brown colour with a nice light brown head. Aroma of smooth roastedness and toffee combined with a light smooth hoppieness. Light sweet roasted flavour with caramel, ends up dry. Nice made but nothing overwelming.

RexTalionis (2522) - FINLAND - FEB 25, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Poured black coca-cola like colour with foamy tan head. Aroma is light roasted malt with hints of sweet sugar. Flavour similar, from slightly burned to sweet taste. Pretty nice roasted aftertaste, even if it feels a bit thin.

ALLOVATE (2437) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2011
From the bottle, into the classic schwarzbier flute like that pictured, not quite chilled. Yields a very fine bead with a tight, compact tan head that holds and laces well. Shimmering, darkest ruby-brown is the body. Smells oddly of cured beef, fresh Biltong, anchovies and cocoa with hints of cola soda and rust coming through, at least it has character. Sweet and bitter burnt, caramelised sugars dominate in the mouth atop a bed of toasted and chocolaty malts. Twiggy bark, burnt wood and rust in back tries to soften the sweetness. Lightly bitter malt swallow holds some chocolate ice-cream notes and wood to linger long with much residual sugar. Body is medium-light but it sits quite heavy and become increasingly cloying as it warms further. Just doesn’t come together, it is way too sweet form me! (50cL, BB 10/12/10, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

armando629 (2415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 16, 2011
0,5 l bottle from Pivo Söröző, Budapest.
Clear deep brown beer with some ruby tones in the body, medium goodlokin’ foamy tan-light beige head that stays on the surface. Moderated aroma with some liqourice, some roasted malt, caramel and molasses. Medium bodied one, roasted grains leads the slip, after that comes the caramel, some coffee/cocoa, herbal hops in the finish. Light roasted aftertaste.

Pours very dark red with a high head. Light aroma is roasted malts. Flavor is mostly roasted malts with a hint of coffee. Pretty decent dark lager.

POLK (2219) - Hřrning, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2012
Inexpensive dark bottom fermented lager, which is just good enough, nothing special. Easy drinkable.
