22nd October 2013
Bottle drank on hols in St Ives. Opaque dark brown beer. Palate is light and semi dry. Tangy malts with a modest dark character. Tangy ripe orange. A little licorice - aniseed. Light dry finish. Interesting and tasty if a bit dry. Also starting to notice a characteristic tang on Rebel beers.

Bottle. Black and pretty liveless. Also contained a hint of sulphur at first.
This dissapeared to be replaced by a reasonable malty dryness. Nice label-pity about the beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Black with red hues, meium head. Aroma is metalic. Taste is a little bit of roasted malts and a touch of dark fruits. Weak on the palate. Not a great Swarzbier.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Craft Beer Rising. It pours very dark brown with a medium beige head. The nose is earth, toast, coffee grinds and cocoa. The taste is earth, toast, bitter chocolate, coffee, light soy sauce and burnt notes with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Fairly straight-forward and unexciting schwartzbier.

This is a moment, my first added beer. A good one to start with too. It’s a little like a porter, quite thin, bit malty, and nice and crisp. And the description sounds like the kind of nonsense I come up with for reviews. Pretty sure this is my first black lager as well. Yum.
