Hmmmm... What is a black beer supposed to taste like? I was expecting something similar to a doppelbock, but this isn't. It looks like a stout, feels like porter. Malty sweet, with little hoppiness or roastiness. Interesting.

Like dark layers and there is plenty of good chocolate roasted notes. Not my favorite though.

Adding a pre-Ratebeer beer that I’m not going to have again. Originally had in Sorrento, April 2015. Sweet surgary. Enjoyable enough. The bar owner was interested to see what I thought as he thought it was horrible.

For the book. Aroma is roasted malt, burned, but sweet, dark fruit and coffee, but a lager quality is present. Appearance is dark dark brown, tan head, poured thin. Taste is caramel, sweet, then roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate, easy to drink. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, a faint roasted malt and sweet aftertaste. Overall, not good for a Schwarz but easy to drink on a hot day.

Dark brown, fluffy tan and short lived head. Medium body, moderate flavor, bright and clean mouthfeel, avg length. Bitter, offdry, good balance. Smoky, roasty, malty, some yeast. True to style, quite pleasant schwartzbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsporrer (733) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2016
Pours a dark brown to black with a thin tan ring. Thin to medium body with some lacing. Not much of an aroma. Fairly thin feel with a slightly tart and sweet malt taste. Flavors are not very bold or lasting. Pretty plain but drinkable. OK but nothing special.

Hyvin tumma, colanruskea olut pienehköllä vaahdolla. Coca colaltahan tämä näyttää ulkoisesti. Tuoksu kevyen sokerinen ja jopa aavistuksen vaniljainen sekä leipäisen mämminen. Maku ei kuitenkaan ole samalla tasolla. Olut ikäänkuin soljuu kurkusta alas sen kummemmin miltään maistumatta, karkeasti sanottuna. Tarkemmin analysoituna aavistuksen sokerinen, hitusen vaniljainen, heikosti maltainen ja jälkimaultaan metallinen. Suutuntuma keskitäyteläinen, pehmeä ja miedosti hiilihappoinen kokonaisuus. Kun ottaa valmistusmaan huomioon, on tämä ihan positiivinen yllätys. Muutoin ei herätä hurraahuutoja.
