jerohen (2029) - Bussum, - OCT 22, 2012
Bottled from a supermarket in Albufeira, Portugal. Black appearance, very small brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, hint of coffee and liquorice. Malty and dry flavor, liquorice, somewhat bitter finish. Quite thin mouthfeel. Feels like a ’light’ version of a schwarzbier.

Westkyoto77 (541) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 21, 2014
Discounted bottle from Yamaya. Promising hiss at opening and decent looks, rich black-brown with decent sized head. Caramelly, sweetish nose. Some chocolate, soy sauce, but of dishwater. Not bad I guess, but I'm a sucker for black beers so there's an extra few points right there.

Bottle on sale from Yamaya 170yen(so near the best by date) Ah it is a schwarzbier not a stout, that makes more sense then... still it poured a nice cola brown with a thick quickly dissipating beige head. The nose is roasty sweet malts, barley and light coffee. An effervescent carbonation reminiscent of sparkling water like Perrier on a fairly thin body. The taste is actually pretty good a well balanced mix of roasted malts, a bit of sweetness and some coffee. Not bad. Knowing it is a schwarzbier I’d say it’s quite true to style and among the nicer ones I’ve had lately... though actually it isn’t a style I seek out.

Clear dark brown ruby with light brown little lacing foam head. Aroma is caramel, some nutty and fruit tones. Watered down taste however. Again caramel, little barley, some smokey toast tones. (Velp 201411)

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle. An almost clear one, dark reddish brown in color and with a small, dense, dark beige head on top. The aroma is chocolate-ish, with a meaty touch, some toffee and a grassy, hayish touch. Chocolate, nuts, caramel and some toffee in the flavor, not much bitterness going on. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Long, chocolatey finish. Quite nice this one, but not exciting. 141011
