4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a pint glass. Dark brown with amber hues and an inch of grey/tannish head.
Very aromatic; strong burnt and roasted malt, like a cup of Black Patent Malt with a little honey.
An initial light flavor: mildly malty, leading to a dominating burnt malt taste and a nibble of hops.
Light lager body with moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink.
Excellent schwarzbier. It has a great balance of maltiness and light body with a solid flavor profile.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copenhagen 20/5 2017. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Very German label with a lot of medieval paraphernalia like Shields, lions and Regal Birds. Black of course. It is a Schwarzbier after all. Pours clear dark brown - almost opaque - with big off-white head. Settles as thin almost transparent layer of foam with lacing along the rim of the glass. Aroma is not particularly strong. Sweet dark malts, butter and caramel with light roastiness. Soft carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is rather sweet followed by light bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet slightly burnt caramel. Traditional and easily drinkable schwarzbier. No surprises - but pleasant enough.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(330 ml bottle) Jet black beer, with a dense tan head. A sweet aroma of roasted malt, and a savoury yeast extract note. Coffee, milk chocolate, mineral water, brown sugar, and a hint of raspberry. This leads to a bitter finish, with notes of oak and earth.
A pleasant roasty beer, but could do with a deeper aroma, and a richer palate.
