Nice roasted aroma smells pretty sweet. Pours dark with a creamy head. Whoa! Flavor explosion. More like a dopplebock, no maybe scotch, no maybedouble dunkl, wow I don’t know. Complex, too dark for me, I can’t even finish it but I give it props.

Przyjemny aromat kawy i czekolady. Jest dość wytrawny i lekko ziołowy. W smaku lekkie, kawowe. Bardzo intensywne w smaku. Pełne w odczuciu, zostawia posmak kawy z mlekiem. Bardzo dobre piwo.

Daboch (172) - Gdansk, POLAND - NOV 21, 2017
Ciemne nieprzezroczyste piwo z dość obfitą jasnobezową pianą. Aromat palony, słodowy, lekko wędzony. W smaku podobnie nuty palone, trochę słodowe, posmak lekko dymionych słodow. Dobry schwarzbier z Szwajcarii

SlackerMads (3523) - DENMARK - OCT 28, 2017
Bottle received in the Local European Swap, thanks to kto for this top 50 schwarzbier. Pours black with a dense light brown head with good retention, lace and regeneration. The nose has roasted malt, meaty smoke and light fruity notes. The flavour follows the nose with roasted malt, chalk, vanilla, light smoke, light iron. Medium body, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Long roasted finish. Pleasant and flavourful.

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.

badhack (566) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours nearly black. However palate is light, a small amount of smoke. Dark chocolate and dark malt dominates. It was served very cold. After warning I noticed a lot of honey on the nose and tongue.

milewide (2315) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Fine for the Schwarzbier style noted above, but bottle calls it a stout. Too bland and sweet for a stout.

I bought this bottle at Manora Geneva. I drank it yesterday at home, relax after the job. The price and quality is really good, nice product, the best beer from this brewery. The body is a deep black color, brown foam and creamy. The taste is well balanced, mixing roasted malt, coffee, toffee, a little bit smocked, hop, bitterness. It sounds like a porter. The taste in the mouth is just great.

andrepintado (3667) - Porto, PORTUGAL - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle thanks to CH-303. Dark color. Thin brown head. Thin sweetness, medium bitterness. Finish is dry and long. Aroma is coffee, liquorice, chocolate, roasted, light fruity. Very very good. I wasn’t expecting this at all!
