I had this on tap. The dark black body is well contrasted by the rich creamy head. There was little aroma, but the flavor was wonderfully rich. It had little hopiness and was very smooth. The palate was also very pleasant. A very good beer.

Chewy first taste. A bears ass for sure. It's a bit watery, but true to the label it's not too malty. No after taste. No memory to encourage a repeat. ���� ---Rat via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At the Loop Hotel with Hrabren, visnja666v and Goran (thanks guys!).
. Blackish, extremely dark amber really. Dull sweet aroma, raisins. Light, light creamy, raisiny taste, more sweet than dry. Vague soapy notes, pollen. This is awful for a Schwarzbier and just an average Dunkel, below average even. There is ABSOLUTELY NO reason to import it here. Useless and way too expensive (again, here).

0.33 at Loop hotel, Folka. Dark brown with small head. Raisin, malts, dry figs, maybe some chocolate, caramel. Light body, roasty bitterness, malty taste. Watery. Not good.

Do yourself a favor and drink 2 before rating, the initial taste will throw you off , but it delivers a decent mouth feel and taste.

HammerTroll (1015) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 9, 2015
Clear dark brown color with big tan head. Chocolate aroma, roasted malt. Spicy taste with roasty finish. Kind of weird (or unique?) notes. Too bad it’s so watery. Different than usual schwarzbier, but i’m not impressed.
(Pivoteka 0,33l bottle)

Less than average black lager. Lacks the creamy chocolate sweetness. Thin body.

Drank from the bottle, purchased at Matt Brewing Company. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, and slight chocolately aroma. Tastes gross, roasty with a not so nice hop finish. Go get a different beer.
