2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of foamy medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy dark yellow colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was hoppy malty yeasty and banana. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow malty aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of yeast banana hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Dark muddy blackish color. Very little aroma. Taste was surprisingly good. Smooth and full bodied with no aftertaste. Carbonation was perfect. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark brown with a thin head. Roasty nose kinda like burnt popcorn but not so bad, with a biscuity malty sweetness, and a roasty earthiness. Lightish body but balanced and well rounded flavor, kinda biscuit and crackery with an earthy sweetness and some Kolsh-like maltiness and bitterness. Like a sweet and roasty well-made Kolsh. Amazing.

Received a six pack as a gift. Wasn’t encouraged by the description of a black malt Kolsch, but was pleasantly surprised. Smooth, clean and very drinkable. Some day I will learn to not doubt Saint Arnold.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has the aroma of a schwarz, but lacks almost all other characteristics. Approaches the smoothness of a kolsch, but leaves a sticky aftertaste. Above average beer.

botlle received as an extra, much thanx to azzy ( not sure he’s on RB as well though) splitted with 77 ships
pours dark brown ( swartzbier? Black krolsh? would have expected much darker )
no real foam, smells like bread. light mouthfeel, malty.. not much taste i’d call this a dark coloured lager / pils kinda beer. ( what krolsh is , i’ve heard.. never had one so dont know for sure )

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black Kölsch? Robijn amber rood, weinig kraag. Zware vintage geuren, lichte oxidatie, donker fruit, ijzer, lager gist, lichtjes waterig. Zoet ijzer, lager gist, metaal, hoest siroop, kruiden, bruin brood, donker brood, bitter metaal, kruiden op het einde, herfst bladeren. OK mondgevoel voor iets wat oudere lager. Ok.
