0.5 L bottle from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. Two-finger, mostely diminishing, beige head. Black body with almost no clarity. Fairly dry malt aroma, medium roasted, pepper, dark bread, mild coffee and some fruit tones. Taste is light to medium sweet and dominated by sllightly roasted, ashy dark malts. Notes of burnt caramel, English licorice, milk-chocolate and coffee ground. Mildly hopped, some salty undertones. Slick mouthfeel, not very filling.
Dryish, powdery chocolate finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske 0,5l delt med Rune. Dyprød/svart på farge. Veldig høyt kremaktig skum med litt farge. Sterk aroma med litt ristet malt & kaffe. Deilig på smak: Kaffe & ristet malt. Langvarig ettersmak i samme gate. Minner mye om en porter. Kanskje litt uvariert - men bevares: Denne kunne jeg ha drukket mye av. KI=2

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Black body, huge light beige foamy head which dies after a short while. Nose is licorice, leather, coffee and hints of roasted bread. Taste is light coffee, toast and hints of leather. A bit boring and thin, but hey - what do you expect of a Schwarz?

Bottle at home.
Dark red-black with a light brown head. Aroma heavy malty (roasted, coffee, chocolate). Flavor moderate sweet, light bitter, smooth. Coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, notes of vanilla. Medium body, not a schwarzbier to me, but very drinkabkle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with pale brown head. Rye bread, slight smoke and cookie malt in aroma. Milky mouthfeel with chocolate, toast malts and rye bread in flavour. Elegant flavour profile, with tad nuts as well. Low bitterness. Really tasty and pronounced schwarzbier!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm, This one pours a near black body - or actually it’s black with a nice tan creamy head. The aroma has chocolate ice cream, dark malts, caramel and hints of cardboard. It has a average carbonation level and a silky and rich mouthfeel. Quite impressive for a 5 percenter actually. It’s quite dry and chalky in the flavor with tones of roasted or burned malts, lots of cold coffee, some leather hints and a light bitter finish. Not a horrible Schwarz at all, but not completely my thing.
