2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. BB 18/07/13. From bierzwerg.de.
Very gloomy labelled bottle gives me 330 ml of dark reddish brown almost black coloured beer with a tiny tan head. The aroma is sweetish malty and liquoricy. The flavour is bready malt, mild sweetness, salt and liquorice. Watery. Not the best example of Schwarzbier but not that undrinkable either.

Bottle looks okay, beer in the glass deep black, small head. Starts intense malty, very dusty-malty and roasty. A bit too much I think. Finish mild, boring-malty. Not so good.
