Alexi91 (225) - Bristol/Romsey, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Origin: Tap. Vessel: Tumbler. Supplier: Zero Degrees (Bristol). Very little nose but heavy hit of roasted malts when tasted. Gives way to rising smokiness.

Pours quite dark with little tan head. Roasty, caramel, liquorice aromas. Taste follows the nose. Nice and tasty dunkel.

Aroma: roasted malts, grain, chocolate. Appearance: black, small, creamy, beige head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: malty sweets coming up quickly, grains and toasted malts again, lively carbonation. Overall: decent Dunkel, quite well-balanced. Pint at Zerodegrees, Blackheath.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Draught at the Reading Zerodegrees Brewpub on 22 March 2014. Poured a dark brown, with a halo of rocky, beige head. If I didn’t know better, I would have assumed that this was a pint of cola. Aroma of burnt sugar, toasted malt and rye bread. Dark malt flavours, with notes of brown sugar and chewy grain. Finish was bread, liquorice and grassy hop. Definitely the best of their beers that I tried.

kwik-lime (1517) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Dark with a beige head that lasts nicely. Rich roasted malt, brown sugar, caramel, some dry hop to balance - really nice beer, easily the best of the three I tried.

DanielBrown (4147) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Keg at Zero Degrees, Bristol. Very good, smooth coffee flavour. Quite nice. Easy to swig. A pleasant surprise. One of the better Schwarzbiers I’ve tried.

Desverger (4369) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2015 (On tap at Zerodegrees, Blackheath, London) It pours dark brown with a tan head, nice aroma and complex taste combination of smoky, nutty, malt/caramel, and coffee chocolate. A firm session favourite of mine at the local. Updated: Tried again on recent visit back to UK middle of 2014, is just not as good as remembered sadly, bit more watery and not as powerful, or maybe my palate has just evolved over time. Rating amended to reflect this.
