yespr (32033) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2008
12 fl oz bottle. Pours deep brown and golden deep amber with a small lacing tan head. Mild roasted malty aroma, light liqourice and hoppy fruity. Sweet and fruity flavour with a light breadish roasted malt note. Lingering fruity hops finish, quite distinct and slight liqourice flavoured too. Not the classic schwarz bier yet a pleasant interpretation of the style.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2006
A deep red-brown beer with a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of chocolate, and a citrusy hop note. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel at first, before notes of citrus and hints of chocolate joins in, leading to a dry and quite bitter end from a combination of roasted malt and hops. But the body is a bit thin, as You often find in Schwarzbiers. I find it like an American interpretaion of a Schwarzbier, and quite nice.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, reddish chestnut brown with a small, off-white head. Fruity, berry-like nose. Medium-bodied with roasted malts and some burned caramel accents. Some malt astringency. Decent - but I believe the Germans would laugh at this to be considered a Schwarz. 080507

Bottled. Dark rubyish brown colour, small beige head. Aroma is malty, slight caramel and hoppyness. Flavour is metallic, malty, hoppy and breadish. Finish and aftertaste is mainly hoppy and leathery. Schwarzbier? hmmm... Also quite watery.

omhper (19972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2006
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Transparently black, average head. Aroma of resiny hops, metal and rec currant. The clean, hard crystal malt character gives a shiny metallic surface, but no depth. The pleasant hop character provides some interesting flavours and a soothing finishwith restrained bitterness. A decent beer with an awful bogus commercial description. This is extremely American in style, and I have no idea what they are talking about to when they are referring to it as a Bavarian style beer. Black Forest isn’t even in Bavaria.
