Too heavy on palate. Too strong aftertaste. But quite Intriguing. Caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasty, raisin.

Despite having an overall good experience with this beer there was nothing above other beers. Interesting and mellow aroma hint of caramel. Good looking with thick foam.

Bottle from Bignens Vins. I bought a few random bottles from this brewery with pretty much zero expectations. All the others tried so far have exceeded expectations through being solid. This was actually really good. Dark black colour with a thick slightly off-white foam. Strong roasty flavours, coffee, treacle. None of the bitterness of a stout. Perhaps the tiniest hint of butter, but I wouldn’t call that a flaw here. Drank clean and hid the alcohol very well, was amazed to see it’s more than 6%. Splendid stuff.

Marcius (442) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Nice bottle and label. Appearance with black color and rocky brown head. Toasted Malty Aroma. On the palate, it has a full body and bitter (long) finish. Excellent Schwarzbier!!!

anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours black with almost no head. Roasty malt nose, a bit of liquorice. Balanced, but a bit boring.

jfb (6229) - GERMANY - FEB 19, 2015
(bottle) black colour with a frothy brown head. aroma of bubble gum, marzipan and dark chocolate, with a hint of cherry schnaps, toffee and yeast. flavour is mostly brown sugar, dark fruit and milk chocolate, slightly sweet, with a hint of roasted malts, sugar icing and more yeast. medium-bodied with average carbonation. great stuff!
