Pours a very dark brown/black with a slight light brown head. Scent has sweet caramel malts and sugars. Taste has a good mixture of sweet caramel malts and robust malts. Flavor is bold and has a decent texture but the finish is a little dry with a little bit of a chalky after taste. A rather interesting version of a schwarzbier.

minutemat (1300) - 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.

Pours a brown color with khaki head. Bread, grains, and some caramel malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some toast.

tomekk1978 (408) - 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.

visionthing (2583) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
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.

Black color, medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, malt, dried fruits and hint of chocolate. Taste has roasted malt, light coffee, dark fruits, hint of ash - dry sweet with gently bitter finish. Light body and average carbonation. Decent beer, quite drinkable, especially while watching Brazil playing a world cup game...

Couleur noire avec reflets ambrés, mousse qui disparait. Nez de malt grillé, café, caramel grillé. Gout doux de malt grillé et caramel, le tout assez leger et aqueux .

Bottle. Pours black, opaque. Very little head dissipated almost immediately. Aroma is toasted malt, coffee, some grassy hops, licorice (very light.) Flavor is a pleasing combination of roasted coffee, light hop bite, and light bitterness. Pleasantly surprised with this one.

It pours into the glass a very dark brown/black color and when held up to the light it shows very dark crimson highlights. On top sits a nice tan head of slow fading foam. A thin cap hangs on to the end. Lacing is mostly slick but there is some sticky lace just up at the top of the glass. Sweet roasted barley and bready notes fill the nose. Also there are hints of raw grain and even some very slight white grape and peach candy notes. Just as the aroma suggests there is a good sweet roasted malty character. I also picked up the fruity notes of white grape and sugar covered peach gummy candy. The body is quite easy drinking, about a light medium. Its texture is some with a light or mellow, yet still active carbonation.
