olio (8206) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2014
65 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours pitch black color with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of licorice, wood, caramel malts, some nutty notes, cocoa and fruits, faint berry notes also. Flavor of tar, caramel, syrup, smokey ham hints, some coffee notes appear also, chocolate, wood, soy and grain. Strong carbonation, some hops might have faded a bit as this was a bit older bottle. Very tasty and quite massive feel for a Schwarzbier.

jde123 (768) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 4, 2014
This is a lovely surprise. I was expecting, based on the label of "black lager" it would be thin and weak like most beers advertised as "black xyz:" thick flavorful wonderful.

Black with a foamy dark brown head and no lacing. Aroma of smoked malts, chocolate, yeasts, floral hops and roasted barley. Likewise with the flavor but way more roasty forward. Mild carbonation and a light body; Easy to drink. Pretty good!

c0fein (392) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2014
660ml bottle @ home. From Saveur Biere.

Black outlook with beautiful brown foam. I could guess from outlook that this is Imperial Stout. Little bit burned aroma. Good one, but too roasted periodically.
