danielecamo (839) - ITALY - MAR 6, 2014
In bottiglia. Aroma di tostato persistente, nocciola, frutta secca, leggero affumicato. Al palato morbida, rotonda con sentori di tostato, cioccolato, nocciola e un amaro dato dal malto che ben bilancia la birra. Ben fatta.

Sissio (1355) - Orsenigo, ITALY - MAR 2, 2014
Pours dark brown, clear, brown rich head, but not persistent. Light medium malts, light sweetness, coffee, roasted malts, caramel and aromatic hop notes very equilibrated. Taste: light sweetness, smooth malts to roasted malts (coffe, raw cocoa seeds, licorice) greatly balanced with the aromatic hop component. Exquisetly equilibrated.

Absolutbeerginer (54) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bire trs fonce (quasi noire) mais brillante. Une apparence intressante qui pourtant ne cache pas beaucoup de subtilits. Faible richesse aromatique au nez. Terre, caf certes, couverture de cheval, chien mouill. Ne devrait pas tre servie dans des verres dgustation. En bouche, cette lager sombre est heureusement plus intressante. Le malt et rien que le malt domine. Le malt torrfi donne une certaine amertume, un got de brl avec des notes de caf. Corps moyen, texture sche, la finale est amre et sucre. Enfin, la longueur en bouche est plutt moyenne courte.

Aroma: Bread and toasted malts. Appearance: black, medium brown head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: fully body, medium carbonation, first sweet again, then very light bitterness appearing in the finish. Overall: nice Schwarzbier, not too heavy. Bottle at Shishabar Thun, Switzerland.

MichaelAwesome (6483) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Fr ein schwarzbier recht mild und so gar nicht nach Hhnerbrhe schmeckend, doch ansonsten wie ein abgestandenes Export mit dunkler Farbe. Trinkbar und ohne Highlights. Ganz ok.

McTapps (6559) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Pours out in a very deep black colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of malt and coffee. Surprisingly nice taste of browned butter, malt, vanilla, woods and cake. Hints of brown sugar and light -very light- smoke (something I am allergic to). Nice and buttery finish. Beer got better the more air it got but it still was a little bit average and boring. Solid Schwarzbier though.
