2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, september 8th 2013. Very dark brown, almost ’schwarz’ in appearance, with a big creamy beige head. Aroma of almond, dark malt, yeast. Taste is kinda off, lightly roasted malt and mayonnaise, which is just wrong. The mayo taste escapes fast but comes back in every sip. After it disappeared there’s a nut and coffee taste, and heavy malt sweetness. Sweetness lasts long into the aftertaste. I guess (hope) the whole mayo stuff is something wrong with this bottle, taking that aside it has some qualities that reminds me of a drinkable beer, so I’ll happily give it another chanc later.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mørk brun selv om den heter schwarzbier, men den er klar og fin. Lukter sjokolade, og en smak som minner meg om halslinser. Kort ettersmak, litt lakris.

Bottle from Systembolaget Jönköping shared with Simonsen & Carsten
Amber, tanned head. Well....a schwarzbier quite far away from being black. Smells of caramel, hints of roast and coffee, malts. Medium sweet, caramel, no roast in flavor, hints of coffee. Moderate bitter finish. Quite far away from the good schwarzbiers out there
