17Beer (425) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 20, 2014
33 cl bottle in a tall schooner. Malty aroma of caramel, coffee. pours a clear dar, dark brown with a big dark tan, frothy head that lingers and leaves strong lacing. Sweet and tangy like espresso with some sugar. Round and malty flavors too. A full body, lively, with a nice, lingering, pleasantly bitter finish. My favorite Schwarzbier yet.

Pours black with rich, frothy beige head. Aroma is cocoa, brown bread and toasted malt. Taste is balanced and refreshing, slight sweetness in chocolate,some coffee and licorice notes. Mouth feel is very smooth. Taste and feels like a stout, but stunningly clean, friendly - must be the water.

Brewhemia (321) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 19, 2014
I think this is a pretty good schwarzbier in a very cool bottle. A lot od cinnamon in the aroma and taste and some burned almonds. A lot of sugersweetness.

ST247 (494) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 16, 2014
UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Bottle @home. Pours black with a light brown foam. Aroma is light chocolate, little malt. Taste is chocolate, roasted, bit coffee. Chocolate aftertaste. Really nice one.

Tasty schwarzbier. Malty, with some herbs and a fresh floral touch. And a cool bottle of course.

polaxis (73) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. At home @10°C
Pours black with a brown head. Sweetish aroma of hard roasted malts and some oak. Solid body (roasted malts and hints of fruit). Below average carbonation which allows the aroma to be in the foreground. Very well balanced beer. Certainly of one of the best beers of this brewery.

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 (1761) - 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.

Mariusz (12111) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2014
Pours black color in color, light body, crisp, caramel and a lite roasty malt taste.

Absolutbeerginer (54) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Bière très foncée (quasi noire) mais brillante. Une apparence intéressante qui pourtant ne cache pas beaucoup de subtilités. Faible richesse aromatique au nez. Terre, café certes, couverture de cheval, chien mouillé. Ne devrait pas être servie dans des verres à dégustation. En bouche, cette lager sombre est heureusement plus intéressante. Le malt et rien que le malt domine. Le malt torréfié donne une certaine amertume, un goût de brûlé avec des notes de café. Corps moyen, texture sèche, la finale est amère et sucrée. Enfin, la longueur en bouche est plutôt moyenne à courte.
