3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
15-11-2017; bottle; at home (bought somewhere in Germany).
The looks of the beer are very nice. The beer truly is a Schwarzbier. It is very dark. The color is a very dark brown, approaching black. At the edges the beer has a dark coppery reddish brown color, also approaching black. Nice. On top of the beer a lovely light brown soft head is formed. Foam retention is average. After a while a nice thin light brown drape is left. Lovely.
The smell of the beer is nice. It isn't very strong though. I smell some nice malt aromas, that clearly have a toasted and roasted character. This gives some nice touches of chocolate, coffee and some caramel. I also smell some dark red fruits. Hop aromas aren't that clearly present. They give just a fresh balancing touch to the beer. Nice though.
The taste of the beer is very nice. I taste some clear toasted malts. Some chocolate, coffee and caramel. The hops give a nice fresh bitterness and a slight acidity. I also taste some nice red fruits. Some touches of cherry and a hint of raspberry. Lovely and very well balanced, with a nice bitter undertone. I like it.
The palate of the beer is nice. Full body, smooth and high carbonation. The finish is a tiny bit short. It is mainly bitter, a bit dry even. There are some bitter toast flavours, some chocolate and some bitter hops. All in all, another great beer from BraufactuM. Good job. cgarvieuk (25984) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 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.
