fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Dark brown, nearly black body with thick tan lacing head. Aroma is molasses, malt, grain. Flavor is bitter and malty. Medium to thin palate. Flavor doesn’t match up to the appearance or aroma.

czar (3784) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
pours unclear light brown with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. faint roasted malts, slightly grainy and spicy maltiness, hint of coffee - stale coffee grinds, peppery and overall quite spicy, some bland herbal-grassy notes. moderate carbonation, light body - slightly watery, dry herbal-grassy-spicy finish. inoffensive like a handfull of dark malts thrown into a large pale malt bill mash. meh.

mansquito (3106) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2014
New Beer Distributors, NYC 50cl: Pours black with a creamy head. Aroma is light chocolate, grainy malt, and some dirt. Taste is pretty much in line. Very slightly sweet. Mild chocolate. Easy to drink. I found it pleasant.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Half liter fliptop from WFM Lexington. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large foamy brown head. Average head retention. Aroma of doughy malt, earth and raisin. The taste is raisin and not much else. Mild hints of toffee and Noble hops. Thin bodied. Meh.

Monchito_IPA (112) - SPAIN - FEB 7, 2014
Muy oscura con espuma beige. Aroma a tostado y caramelo, humo y un toque raro, artificial, que también se encuentra en el gusto, como a cocacola. Dulce en el paladar, más bien aguada, con sabor a viejo, óxido, muy cansina. Si necesitas botellas con tapón mecánico genial, si no, mejor no.

Idiosynkrasie (3234) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing, dark brown colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Dark malty aroma, hints of malt lozenge, a touch of rock sugar. Taste is minimally grainy, cautiously sweet dark malty. Lacks intensity in aroma and taste, cautious hints of artificiality concerning colour and sweetness.

dnicolaescu (536) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 18, 2014
SWING-TOP 50CL. Look: almost black with red highlights, clear. Medium-sized beige frothy head with an average retention. Aroma: starts with some winey acidity/oxidation but that fades out quickly, a bit of caramel, just a touch of toast. Quite faint. Taste: Dr, light bitter, some mineral sharpness. More like a coloured dortmunder. Very little roasted grain character.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle:   Translucent fiery brown, small sudsy off-white head, little lacing.   Hamster food like aroma.   Really smells like pet feed of some sort.   Biscuit to start, overly sweet yet thin in body.   A bit astringent.   Seems light struck.   Has a fairly poor mealy taste, pellet food like profile.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft whole wheat bread finish, along with that pellet food.   A touch of caramel. but a bit astringent.   Not a Schwarzbier I care to ever have again.   Reminds me a bit of really old beef stew.   Blech...
