PalCabral (162) - - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours black with some rare red hints and the nice beige layer of scum. Malty roasted aroma, not so strong, maybe some dark chocolate or cacau. The taste malty, more roasted malts with some backing bitterness more likely coming from the use of schwartzmalz rather than hops. The texture is very smooth and the carb low, and I think I would guess this would be a stout in a blind test. I am not overly fond of this beer type, I think it is one of those you should drink in situ to really enjoy, but it is a nice example of the type. Would prefer more bubbles in it, the flatness of it makes it tiresome in the long run.

ALIBALI (2002) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2017
Fast ausschließlich getragen von Röst und leichten Kaffeearomen und Flavours, kommt dieser Blacky zu keinem Zeitpunkt über das Mittelmaß hinaus. Die Optik einen Tick zu muddy, das Aroma nur ein Hauch und der Trunk dezent säuerlich. Ganz hinten im Background vermutet man auch ein paar Rotfruchtnuancen und findet, wenn man genau hinschmeckt, auch A Touch Of Hopbitterness. Bomber aus dem Kühler, bei MARTINS WEINDEPOT KIEL. Unter 5€!?

Röstmalziger Antrunk, Brotig, Toffee und Bitterschokolade ergänzen sich gut, feinherb (Hopfen: Magnum und Saphir) im Abgang.

Bottle @ Frankfurt airport. This is a nice well crafted Schwartzbeir with lots of roasting and some light smokiness in the finish.

Mørk og lækker med tæt gyldent skum. Brændt karamel, lakrids og malt, men ikke for meget. Lidt hen ad limfjordsporter.
