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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
03-DEC-2010, bottle @Ulkløbben @Henrik, from Systembolaget "Boräs".
Dark dark brown.
Roasted, brown ale like nose.
Taste is fine roasted as well, but the brew turns very thin. For a schwartzbier it is fine. I guess I just hoped for a bit more.
Still fine brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours dark brown with red hints. Pale nougat coloured head. The aroma is medium to heavily roasted with burned notes. Tones of salty soy, new asphalt, burned/smoky rubber, cigar ash, green pepper/gravel/parsley-like coffee, dry cocoa/dark grainy chocolate, burned caramel, dark bread, nutshells and salty black liquorice. The nose is dry and clean with some “green-ish” hops lurking in the background. The flavour holds some sweetness alongside light to medium bitterness. Tones of caramel, sweet liquorice, soy, dark bready wort, coffee and chocolate (what a surprise). Hops are earthy and green. The mouthfeel is clean and light peppery with a near medium carbonation. Mild earthy roast, light mint and sweet liquorice in the finish. Light to medium bodied.

Yes, jag gillar denna.
Det är kul med svart lager, och här har de verkligen fått det till tycker jag.
Fina toner av kaffe, choklad, lakrits, lite syrlighet från humle – allt blandat samman till en trevlig
