500ml bottle @ Zinnkeller, Helsinki. Pours very dark reddish brown, almost black. Aroma of roasted malt, bread and some plum and other dark fruits. Roasted flavour with caramel and some grassy hops. Dryish finish.

McGarnigle (632) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2017
One of those nice ceramic top bottles, scratched up a bit to begin with (re-use, not recycled). This is a decent enough schwarzbier, dark, malty and thick on the tongue. On the sweet side. Very slight chocolatey roast. It’s lightness may be an issue for some, but that’s supposed to be OK for the style.

radassace (101) - SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2016
First Schwarzbier I’v ever tried. 500ml bottle. Pours a dark coffee brown with a tan head. Kind of a dark Pils, lager type thing. Nose is slightly sweet bread, nutty roasted malt. Taste is similar with a slightly bitter finish. Very nice and I need to try more of this style.

Black colour, big beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, hops, hints of chocolate and nuts. Dry sweet taste with light bitterness in finish and aftertaste. Thin body and average carbonation. Nice dark beer, with mild taste and very drinkable.

Fules (976) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - OCT 4, 2016
Közepes, bézs, tartós hab, sötétbarna szín. Feketecsokis, kakaós, porteres illat. Íze csokis, kakaós, némi komlós fűszerességgel. Könnyed, épp csak nem vizes, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén kesernyés. Nem rossz, könnyű kis sör, de nem nyűgözött le különösebben.
