caramel, bread, chocolate, coffee, grass, herbs, brown, black, clear, minimal head, tan foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, bitter Nice malty aromas with dark cocoa/coffee hints. Hops very low key. Medium carbonation with tan foam. A bit thinner then aromas would suggest - I thought it would be fuller bodied, and this feels a bit watered down. Mild bitter finish, again bringing to mind coffee.

visionthing (5124) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 8, 2016
50cl bottle at Rakija Bar Kaldrma, Skopje. Pours close to black with a fairly decent, beige head. Malty aroma with bready notes and hints of caramel and roasted notes. Nice change from the domestic pale lagers of Macedonia.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste caramel, roasted malt, very mild. I thought this was okay. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

adamnowek (2384) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2016
Somewhat surprising that the Brewer listed this beer as being fully flavoured. Bland schwarzbier with no head or character.

Butelka. Aromat słodko słodowy, z wyczuwalną palonością. Ciemnobrązowe z rubinowymi przebłyskami, klarowne. Piana grubopęcherzykowa. Smak lekko słodowy, oglnie dość pusty. Goryczka niska. Średnia pełnia, średnio-wysokie nagazowanie.

Nonshaugen (563) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2016
50 cl can. Very dark reddish mahogany in front of a bright lightbulb, thin beige to tan head. Aromas of dark malt, caramel and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. "Dark" flavours of dark malt, caramel, coffee and some dark fruit at the back. Long and rich aftertaste.

ston3s42 (234) - - JAN 9, 2016
Quite black appearance with lots of foam that disappears after a while. Tastes of brown banana, sweet malt and some caramel and hops. Medium body, bubbly carbonation and a finish of dark chocolate. Tasty, still refreshing.
