Lemke10 (784) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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.

bottle. Pours a very dark brown to black with a small creamy beige head. Aroma is roasty caramel and chocolate with a bit of hazelnut. Mostly one-dimensional sweet flavor. Light bodied with a smooth sweet finish. Decent.

kaups (11) - ESTONIA - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle @ de Tolly joogipood, Tartu, Estonia. Pours with moderate brown head that won´t last. Aroma of some roasted malt and bit sweetness. Taste is fruity, little bit sour, sweet. Aftertaste is also sweet with very little bready bitterness. Overall quite weak head, weak aroma, weak taste, weak aftertaste. Not the worst but not good either. Left emotionless

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a strong malt smell with a sweet follow on Appearance- The beer is black as night and it has a nice creamy tan head Taste- : A lightly bitter flavor with a rich hop taste. Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- This reminds me of Guinness Black Lager, but I prefer Guinness over this. Not terrible and I would recommend people to give it a whirl

jrodooo5 (1015) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Good opaque pour w/ a retaining tan head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is a little funky - kind of sweet yet sour. The taste is relatively clean w/ a little bit of that odd sweet/sour combo & a touch of roastiness. Easily drinkable if nothing else!
