2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served in a snifter. An aggressive pour yields a solid 1+ finger light tan creamy head that is falling steadily as I watch, leaving a substantive lacing on the sides of the glass. The color is black, with some clear brown on the edges when examined with a light. Aroma is mild and elusive, perhaps that of a light chocolate bar with a touch of vanilla. Flavor is mild and balanced, with a hint of sweetness, a hint of bitterness, and a light roast malts. Palate is as promised, creamy and pleasing, driven more by the soft carbonation and less by the body. At 4.4% this is a decent session beer.

En swartzbier. Den smager meget af denne tyske klassiker, den er lidt mere syrlig og skarp i smagen end en porter vil være.
Kan, hvis jeg lukker øjene, godt forstille mig på cafe i Rio drikke denne øl rigtig kold.

Bottle - Nice smell of exotic fruits, dark brown color, stable head. Taste is dark malts, chocolate. Body is medium. A bit bitter in the end. Quite drinkable, you might think at first. But the more you drink the more the added sugar unnerves you. And why is there artificial colorant, stabilizer and antioxidants? Would rate better if they just let the chemicals out of it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with beige top which disappears quickly. Aroma is a bit milk chocolate, caramel and some fruity notes. Quite fresh and appetising aroma. Taste is also fresh, quite milky, some caramel and white chocolate notes. Not very heavy, after lasts some time and brings up milk caramel. Easy to drink and fresh enjoyable taste!
