MarcoDL (4844) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2014
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.

4.1
Sissio (1623) - 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
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.

3.2
Borup (14333) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle from Magasin de Nord, Kgs. Nytorv. Black with a huge beige head. Aroma and flavour of licorice, roasted malt, dried fruit and chocolate.

MrTipple (4782) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
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.
