Sombeast's rating

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2007
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.

Bottled sample. Roasted coffee aroma. Pours black with an off white head and little carbonation. Malty flavour with apple notes and a little watery.

Deep black white lasting head. Sweet roasted malt, short slightly bitter finish. Strange stout.

mighty_meadow (246) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Very dark with small bubbly head. Smells and tastes very sweet. Takes a while to taste any bitterness in the finish but it is there. Pleasant enough but not exceptional.

Medium tan head, and poured a deep ebony. Fruity aroma. Sweet and malty on the front end of the taste, and finished with a light bitterness.

Eructoblaster (3113) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
On tap at Bier Markt (Ottawa, ON). Pours a black body with a thin beige creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with some light roasty hints. Its well balanced taste carries chocolate and roasted cereals notes. Ends with a good bitter/roasty finish. Very decent Schwarzbier.

VereTipsu (20) - ESTONIA - NOV 28, 2014
Head: light brown, stays on Aroma: not very strong at all, usual metallic lager aroma, but nothing much else besides a sweetish note of malt. Color: dark auburn against light (clear), black otherwise Taste: sweet malt and caramel up front, some roastiness in the middle, a bit of hops in the finish Palate: quite light body, moderately high carbonation (which dies down a bit when sitting in glass), slightly burnt caramel in aftertaste.

Satyroneto (134) - - NOV 27, 2014
Cor negra com espuma cremosa que lembra espuma de capuccino de alta formação e média persistência com bom lacing; Aroma adocicado de rapadura/mel de engenho até agradável, mas de dulçor um pouco exagerado que já prediz o sabor; Sabor adocicado de rapadura sem nenhuma nota de amargor para conferir algum equilíbrio. Portanto sabor enjoativo; corpo leve e baixa carbonatação. O dulçor exagerado e falta de carbonatação da a impressão de estar tomando refrigerante de cola que passou a noite aberto na geladeira.

ScottWallace82 (71) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle into a glass. Pours a dark, almost black, brown with a tan head. Not a bad schwartzbier, but not great either. Worth a try.
