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

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Oily, opaque, black with tan ring. Syrup, sweet chocolate liquor aroma, rich, sweet flavour, faint wood, faint dryness. Smooth, full body, hardly any carbonation. Good.

RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle. Pitch black beer with a strong wispy light brown head. The aroma is sweetly roasted with a gentle hint of bitterness. The flavour is mildly malty and roasted coffee. Overall a nice malty roasted dark beer.

Many thanks for this beer to CH-303. Piwo ma srednia pianke ale solidna i w miare trwala, bardzo odznacza sie ma szkle. Ciemno brazowa barwe, nawet jeszcze nie przelewajac wszystkiego i juz byla nieprzezroczysta. Metne i pachnace ciemne piwo piernikiem. W smaku wytrawne palony slod, tort czy ciasto czekoladowe, piernik z rodzynkami do tego nieco lukrecji. Zasluzony top w swoim stylu.

Pours deep black with a generous tanned head leaving a very nice lacing on the glass. Smoked and roasted malts with sweet fruits aroma. Well balanced malty/hoppy/fruity flavor. Round hoppy/malty on the palate with a dry hoppy/malty very nice finish.

500 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 at The Chouffe Party 2016 after party. This one has a Best Before 27.05.2015 on it, so someone dropped the ball. The pour is a light black color, a bit thin as it pours with a thin bubbly collar and s couple soapy spots of lace. The aroma is a little roasty with a light chocolate and caramel and a lingeringly metallic finish. It definitely smells like its best days are behind it. There is a little smokiness on the back end and we’ll see how it holds up. The flavor is pretty invisible. There is a light smoke and a light malt that comes with it, but there is hardly anything there. It’s just missing anything else. The mouth feel is thinner and lackadaisically carbonated with a lingeringly smokey and slightly malty aftertaste. This is just iffy all the way. Not that great.

RexTalionis (3775) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle 33 cl from Drink of the worlds, Basel. Poured cola like in colour with foamy beige head. Coffee and roasted malts in aroma with some hints of dark chocolate as well. Flavour roasted malts and coffee mostly. Not so heavy to drink as one would suspect.
