Fruit and roast aromas. Beige head. Dark red coloured a little rich on the palate and fruity with a creamy dry and slightly bitter roast finish.
Herold Black Lager is a real drink , the best Schwarzbier in the world imo. Had this cask at a JDWS and it was cool and more interesting than most in their festival. Roasted chocolate and burnt raisin profile , with a little motor oil in the finish . Swillable ,tasty Schwarz. wheresthepath (2405) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2010
[Gravity cask at the Back of Beyond, Reading] Black with ruby hints, no head. Sweet chocolate, camp coffee and a bit of treacle causes it to be rather sweet up front. However, it’s saved by roasted malt coming through in the surprisingly dry finish. It’s rather nice actually. Bullit (4719) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 26, 2010
Cask @ Edward Wylie, JDW. Dark brown - red colour, tan lacings. Aroma is toasted malts, sweet licorice. Flavour of sweet licorice, roasted malts, some fruits. A bit watery. Agree on the aniseed mention. A bit smoky. Lots of things going on in this beer, but its a bit on the sweet side. bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the Moon and Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Almost black with a creamy tan head. Dry roast coffee and chocolate with a little caramel and peppery Saaz hops. Interesting to try this cask conditioned. berkshirejohn (6687) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Black with a reddish glow and ring of tan head; aniseed aroma; thinly bodied, the flavour blends aniseed and fruit with a light waft of smoke. Very drinkable.
