Panzerfaust (561) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - JUN 8, 2014
Pours a pitch black color with a small light brown head. Aroma is sweet, malty with some mild roasted sugars coming in. Taste is pretty sweet, not overpowering. Tastes a little bit bock-ish more than your typical Southamerican ultra-sweet Schwarzbier. Hints of caramel and brown sugar. Texture is surprisingly light with a lively carbonation aiming at a fairly drinkable commercial dark lager. Anyway it has reasonable craftmanship and tastes really good.

Bottle from bamboo door, Sheffield. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is same but with some slight dry grassy bitterness. Looks great, opaque black beer with a good tan head. Decent carbonation, slightly watery body.

Maxbier (200) - Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Lite caramel malt aroma dark color with thin tan head. Simple clean Schwartz bier. A little roasted malt up front followed by a sweet finish. Easy to drink beer, probably good for non beer drinkers. A bit like a shandy/Radler.

pours a rich dark brown with a lively tan head. Aroma is malt. Decent carbonation. Hints of coffee with a little hop bitter on the finish. Quite refreshing for a dark. Good beer!

12 fl oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thin, creamy, short lived light brown head. Sweet aroma of roasted malt and brown sugar. Flavour is sweet with roasted malt, caramel and a smooth, dry finish. Medium body, creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation.

gildnerk (128) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Black pour with little tan head. Weak aromas of roasted malts. Taste is very sugary-sweet with little else. The body is somewhat oily with medium carbonation. Sour-grainy aftertaste. Not good.

Dobre i nawet najlepsze sposrod piw brazylijskich jakie testowalem. Schwarzbier tresciwy slodkawy ale nie nadmiernie jak czesto zdarza sie w tym stylu. Kolor dosc ciemny z czerwonymi refleksami. Piana srednia ale trwala znaczaca na szkle swa obecnosc. Koloru bezowego. Koncowka leciutko palona i prazona. Bylem zadowolony po degustazji egzotycznego piwa co zadko mi sie to zdaza

BitchPls (542) - FINLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Cola black beer with a dark beige head. Sweet aroma, syrup, black sugar, malts. Sugary sweet and seems like it actually does contain added sugar. Dark bread, sugar, syrup. Watery body. No bitterness. Quite drinkable but can’t appreciate the sugar.

From notes. 12 oz bottle shared at a tasting on 5 May. The pour is pretty much black, with some ruby notes around the edges, and a light tan head with some decent clingy lace. It’s got a nice dark malt profile and smells like a light porter. There isn’t a whole lot going on. The flavor is very similar. I like the chocolate presence that’s here beyond the maltiness. Unfortunately, that’s about it. The mouth feel is quite light and the hardly-there carbonation really emphasizes that. The aftertaste is just as quick, not complex, and forgettable

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Goût sucré trop prononcé. On ne sent pas vraiment le côté black beer. Bof.
