3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dense, dark, reddish-brown, verging on black, with a thick brown head.
The aromas signal smoothness - roasted malts, milk chocolate, cappucino rather than coffee, smoke, licorice, hops, ashes.
Dry, medium bodied, medium bitterness, lively CO2.
Roasted malt and coffee dominate the taste, chocolate, hops, licorice, ashes.
There’s an acidity, most likely from the roasted malt, that leaves the finish a bit astringent, and it feels as if a bit more body would have been great. Still quite nice and balanced. (2011-11-05)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Dark brown. Looks hazy. Small off-white head that clings to the glass. Motor oil aroma. Nuts and licorce in the nose. Refreshing flavours initially. Medium-bodied. Light nutty flavours balanced by a roasted dry maltiness. Nicely balanced, and quite nice for a schwartzbier. Unlike most of them this one has a personality.
