Total Wine, Fairfax 500ml ($5): Pours black with tan head. Aroma is heavily chocolate and coffee. Taste is much the same. It be nice and bitter. Roasted malts are pretty powerful in this one. Body is a little light, but way more substantial than that of other beers of this style. Very drinkable. Minor aftertaste. Quite good.
Black pour, finger of tan head. Nose is mild coffee. Bittersweet. Middle is blackened malt, cocco, and hint of espresso. Finish is bittersweet and medium bodied. Delicious beer. wombat23 (1417) - Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2017

330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet. BB date was 09.2013, appears to have cellared well. ABV is 5.5%. Black colour, moderate tan head. Decent aroma of chocolate / cocoa and coffee. The flavour is neither too sweet nor too dry. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, mild coffee and moderate but noticeable hops. Well balanced and enjoyable. Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - SEP 28, 2014
Birra italiana particolare e gustosa. Colore nero impenetrabile, schiuma fitta, ma grossolana in superficie, color cappuccino chiaro.All’aroma si avverte dell’affumicato, nonché dei sentori liquorosi, di cioccolato e di caffè. Tutti queste quattro note si avvertono anche nel gusto, nonché un leggerissimo acidulo e della liquirizia. Retrogusto non molto persistente. Alengrin (5340) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Schwarzbier from a young micro brewery in Rome, carrying a light beige, creamy, stable head and very dark bronze colour, almost black, as typical for this style. Cold coffee aroma with hints of caramel, tobacco, dried figues and liquorice. Taste a dry chocolatey and caramelly maltiness, some dried fruit, light spicy tones, smoky touch, finishing in a long, dry toasted bitterness. More than average example of its style.

330 ml bottle. Very dark brown, almost black looking, with a tiny, non persistent beige head. Quite intense nose, lots of roasted malts, light chocolate and coffee, definitely some licorice, perhaps some vanilla and meaty qualities as well. Pleasent hoppy, herbal and bitter kick upfront, sweet-ish malty backbon as following, roasted, slightly spicy. Not as watery as expected, in fact it’s quite silky and almost wine-like smooth. Lingering chocolate, earth/wood and licorice in the aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Solid schwarz! zztopt5 (12) - fonzaso, ITALY - JUN 12, 2014
Come dice la bottiglia. BBONA! La descrizione che riporta ratebeer confermata a tutti i livelli. Gusto pieno ma non esagerato benché forte.
