Darkmagus82 (490) - - JUL 20, 2014
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours an almost pitch black color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a roasted malt smell as well as some other darker aromas of cocoa. Along with the darker aromas are some sweeter smells with some caramel and a bit of a cola like aroma. A little bit of a nutty and plum smell are there as well with a hint of graininess rounding it all out. Taste – The taste begins a roasted malt and cola like flavor with some fruit flavors of a light plum. The plum flavors get more intense as the flavors advances with a little bit of coffee adding a touch of bitterness. While the coffee comes to the tongue it quickly fades all while the sweeter plum and cola flavors get more intense. A light herbal flavor mixed with some nutty and chocolate flavors come at the end and mixes with the rest of the flavors to leave a light roasty and sweet flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is average. The thinner body is quite appropriate for the lower abv and the sweeter flavors of the brew, but did minimize some of the darker flavors. The average carbonation was rather fitting for the brew and taking into account the thinness, made for a fairly good feel overall. Overall – A sweet and easy drinking lighter roasted black lager. A good “darker” brew for a warmer summer day.

Kita (991) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle, 0.355l. Hazy ruby brown color with small light brown frothy head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, wine, mild roasted malt and dark fruits. Taste starts with medium sweet caramel malt, follows by mild roasted malt and coffee with dark fruity notes and light bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Quite average mainstream beer, a bit too artificial aroma and sweetness...

minutemat (1349) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
330ml bottle from Everyman Wines, Shrewsbury. My Brazil beer for the Brazil vs Netherlands match. Pours a deep black with cream head. Judging by the colour I was expecting it to taste stronger than it was but this is a pretty standard Schwarzbier, easy-drinking and innoffensive.

tomekk1978 (418) - POLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Barwa: ciemna, z rubinowymi refleksami, pod światło. Piana beżowa, znikoma, drobno pęcherzykowa, szybko opadająca i pozostająca jedynie przy ściankach. [4/5] Aromat: karmel, odrobina czekolady, orzechów, trochę miodu gryczanego oraz niestety mokry karton. Brak chmielu czy alkoholu. Smak: raczej lekki, słodowy, dość słodki, ale również nico kwaskowy. Karmel, lekka czekolada, kawa oraz wspomniany miód. Jeszcze jedno piwo "książkowe" zakupione w Żywcu. Tym razem schwarzbier rodem z Brazylii. Niestety już sam skład i mnogość niesłodowych dodatków odbiera ochotę na degustację. Barwa jest nie najgorsza, choć piana powinna być większa i bardziej trwała. Aromat jest niestety dość ubogi do tego miodowo - "papierowy", co sugeruje utlenienie. Może to być prawdą, wziąwszy pod uwagę nieczytelną datę przydatności do spożycia.

35,5cl bottle from Stockmann, Tallinn. Pours very dark brown with a beige head. Mild roasty aroma with caramel and hints of dark fruits and spices. Medium sweet with mild, but nice malty flavours and a light bitterness. Pleasant one.
