2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Fairly dark, it is a schwarzbier afterall, but light still shines through. A slightly copper hue when it is held up to the light.
Hmm. A medicinal smell. Not pleasant or attractive.
I like the taste for it being a schwarzbier, but only because I usually do not like the sweet maltness of the German schwarzbiers that I have had. This does not have any sweetness to it, which I like.
The smell seemed to die off as I drank the glass so it was not as off-putting as the first few drinks were. The carbonation was annoying too. Still, I liked the taste.

Medium to mild roast flavor, not deep. I get the description thing. Mild roast flavors and somewhat watery. Lager like black ale yes. Nothing real memorable.

En flyvsk øl der er svær at holde i glasset når den varme brise suser på vinterens sidste dag.
En røget smag. En kraftfuld udgave af Rehfvindinges Skibsøl.

Poured from bottle, deep dark brown with light beige head. Aroma is full, with notes of caramel, coffee, fudge and some herbs. Taste is sweet with a slight bitterness, a rather light body and a nice bitter sweet after taste. Notes of coffee, some chocolate, liquorice and herbs.

Mörkbrun nästan svart öl med mörkbeige skumkrona. Doft/smak: sötma, rostad malt, kaffe, choklad, karamell och viss rökighet. Mer än ok! Flaska från Systembolaget.

Copenhagen 6/12 2014. 35,5 cl bottle from Fakta. Pours very dark brown with beige head. Dissipates to thin lacing after a few minutes. Aroma is sweet with hints of chocolate and a little nut. Medium carbonation. Taste is not that intense - but rather light. Follows the nose. Mostly sweetness and roasted malts. Almost no bitterness. A little disappointing for a fan of Mr. Adams.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark cola-brown with tinges of deep red and purple. Has a medium khaki head that leaves nice, sticky lacing. Deep roasted chocolate and caramel in the smell, with notes of coffee. Also smoky, with a peppery spiciness, like a well-done steak or pork roast. Taste carries on the smokiness, with roasted malts bordering on burnt. A light hoppiness also makes its presence known in the back half of the swallow, along with a burnt bitterness that hits after the swallow. Also catching some sweet prunes. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not particularly well-balanced. There are a lot of flavors in there that seem to compete with one another.

En god traditionel lager. Dejlig mørk med en dyb karakter. Absolut værd at drikke.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Opaque dark brown and a ringed eggshell head. Soft choc, softer roast, battery tinny. Soft choc initial taste and little else. Medium carbonation and grippy mouthfeel. Finishes not too bad but not too rusty.
