Schönes mild-trockenes Schwarzbier. Sehr trockene Aromen mit leichtem Röstmalz, leicht süßlich-frisch, leider nicht zu tief. Schöne leichte Lakritze im Nachgeschmack, trocken malzig, süffig mit einem leichten Hauch Restsüße. Aber nicht zu intensiv alle Aromen. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine nett röstig-lakritzig-trockene Note mit einem Hauch malziger Süße. Nett.

PS: This is the first beer, which I had to downgrade in "appearance" and "overall" after reading the backside-label. The brewery promotes its beer by saying that they use selected hops and special malts to brew this unique beer. But the ingredients say: ... Hopfenextrakt and Röstmalzbier. So using only cheaper hop-extract and the even more convenient "Röstmalzbier" (a "beer" brewed by a large factory using only roasted malt to sell it to breweries that don’t use special malts for their own brews but want to sell a f.ex. Schwarzbier) but promoting it differently is in my eyes cheating on customers. Ok - they could read the ingredients, but brewing a good Schwarzbier is for me not brewing a Helles or Pils and mixing it with convenient "Röstmalzbier".

Ein irgendwie ungewoehnliches Schwarzes mit ein wenig Malz, etwas Zucker und ein paar Rosinen. Nicht sueffig, nicht zu einfach zu trinken. Eunfach derber Durchschnitt, der etwas milder als andere Schwarze ist.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a clear dark brown colour with low steady head and medium body. Aroma of dark grains and malt. Taste of roasted barley, dark grains, straw, nuts and chocolate. Easy drinkable and more of a Dunkel than a Schwarz.

ElDesmadre (2507) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Caramel, a roasted note, dark bread crumbs and a metallic note. Dry taste, low on flavour, a bit caramelly, a bit roasted, a tad bitter. Oh, and a bit metallis as well. Boring.

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
A dark, reddish-brown coloured beer with a frothy off-white head. A light malty aroma, nutty, and a little smoky. Dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A dry malty flavour, nutty, smoky with a hint of sour hops in the background. The finish is dry and malty with the sour hop being more prominent. Bottle from Globus, Plauen.

Bottle, danke David. Dark brown with a red hue, low off-white lace. Fresh roast aroma. Lightbodied, roasted, a hint fruit, sparkly mouthfeel, dark roasted malt and bitterhop quick finish. Refreshing, but feels a bit thin.
