Leighton (9874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2014
Can in Gabrovo, Bulgaria - picked up at the local Kaufland. Pours muted, mostly clear brown with a soft, creamy beige head. Pretty decent aroma, just some lightly toasted, brown bread malts, dashes of cocoa. Medium sweet flavor with nicely rounded, bready malts, some toasty toffee, soft earth, mild dried fruits. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Sweet finish with more toasty brown bread, mellow toffee, suggestions of roast and cocoa, very faint bitter earth and dirty leaves, some further dried fruit sweetness. I mean, schwarzbiers don’t really get much better than this. The balance is here, there’s some decent depth of character...I think this is really damn solid stuff.

Gurthnar (1249) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 9, 2014
Can, Kaufland. Aroma mild, cardboard, soapy. Light caramel. Clear dark ruby-brown colour. Beige head, rather short duration. Taste is again mild, neutral. Shortage of flavour. Rather sweet, light caramel, almost nonexistent dark malts. Some cardboard. Not so bad, but very weak. Drinkable, but sad.

veceo (237) - CROATIA - FEB 15, 2014
Dark brown color, thin tan head. Light body, watery texture. Chocolate, caramel aroma. Too sweet and too thin for a schwarzbier.

fredthecat (295) - CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
colour is a very dark brown, decent cream coloured head. smell is of toffee, burnt sugar, roasty bits. taste is minerally, carbonation, dark roasted grain/burnt grain, astringent. palate is a bit harsh, overcarbonated. overall it’s poor for the style but tastes significantly better than a similarly cheap german macro lager.

Can. Pours clear black, large creamy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma is light roasty, cardboard, grain. Flavor is medium sweet, little bitterness, grainy, grassy. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Not going to win any awards, but its not bad.

Piwko z Kaufa. Trochę zbyt wodniste, ale ogólnie to dobre. Przy następnej okazji zakupię pewnie znów.
