On tap at Astoria Beer Garden- pours a very dark brown color with little light passing through. Full chocolate colored head. Aroma is very faint and sweet with a little hop character and malt. Taste is a little bitter with some maltiness. Palate is average. Thin body. Not too bad of a brew but dont go out of your way to get this one. Linnet (1834) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2008
500 ml can abv is 4,4% maybe a swedish version? Thick creamy beige head. Colour is dark. very light aroma, I only detect some dark malts and maybe some notes of dark bread. Again bread in the flavour which is very thin for this kind of beer. This beer wasn’t for me. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Dark brown pour with a thin head. The aroma is pretty light with some dark malts, moderate sweetness, and a touch of metal. Flavor is much the same; rather light, unobtrusive. Meh. Rune (12840) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2008
500ml can shared at a gathering in Tromsø - very fine as a partner to herring food. Pours a nice mahogany body under a fluffy, off-white head. Roasted caramel malts to the nose. Ditto taste with a dry ending. Easy to drink (21.10.2008). WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2008
I hated this one. No character, no malt, nothing. The beer that was not there.

bottle. fizzy carbonation on the pour (probably a bad sign). dark brown with a fizzy tan head. aroma is sweet malts and a touch of roasty chocolate. taste is light caramel malt followed up with a bit of smokiness. a little thin and a bit of an acidic aftertaste. don’t have a lot of schwarzbier experience to compare it to at this point. HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2008
I was rather surprised by the appearance and taste of this. Almost black and the taste is very stouty. Fairly bitter and dry and hints of coffe. Plenty of taste for such a low strength.
