badhack (550) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Roasted malt, dark malt, no charcoal flavor but there is a light smoke finish. Pours cola colored and had a thinner mouth feel. Head was thick and creamy and lumpy. A bit of raisin and nuttiness.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- schwarze Farbe mit leichter schneller zerfallender Schaumbildung - ausgeprägtes Malzaroma mit einer leichten Kaffeenote - die Carbonisierung ist m. E. eine Spur zu hoch für diesen Biertyp - geschmacklich kommt dann nichts neues mehr - der Körper ist leider zu dünn und der Abgang wird dann auch leider zu wässrig Fazit: Trinkbares Schwarzbier für den „normalen“ deutschen Markt
