harrisoni (17594) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle from The Grove Huddersfield. Not expecting this to be super fresh as they were selling it off cheap. Black with dark brown edges and thick dark beige head. Its a decent schwarz not too sweet. Some ok malts. Its fine. Easy drinking and in fact what you could call mild.

Oakes (16128) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2001
Almost black; Toasty aroma - slight coffee; palate has dry, husky dark malts....then the problems start showing up. There is too much carbonation, and the body gets thin. As it warms, cardboardy flavours come out. Clearly, this sample has spent too much time in the distribution chain. The flavours are pretty good (like a cappucino & a peanut doughnut), though, so a fresh bottle would be worth drinking. I have ignored the flaws as best as I could in my rating.

MiP (15379) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2009
Bottle, 5.2%. Brown sugar aroma. Almost black colour, seems cloudy. Small tan head. The flavour is sweet and bready, a bit one-dimensional.

FatPhil (14896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 10, 2011
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
7 Super rich, slightly chocolatey, roasty aroma.
5- Very dark red, just some ruby glints through it, lovely tight, fairly persistent, thick tan head.
7- Solid roasty body, slightly milky and again chocolatey. Hint of real burntness too. Very pleasant, even though its not a very complex.
4 Smooth palate, full-feeling and succulent in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Finish is mostly the richly roasted grains. Some slight bitterness from burntness and hops accompany that.
13 Pretty solid schwartz, fortunately less sweet that many others weve had. Good one.
