I read labels and try to relate. I read this one and cannot. It's verbal diarrhea. What does surfing at midnight have in common with a schwarzbier? Moving forward. Pours abysmal black...think Siberia darkness 24x7 season...yeah it's bleak! It meets the standard and is a tastier black lager than the newer Guiness black watery lager. There is value in your choice tonight. Coffee, earthly, terroir and bitter.

Very dark brown to black color with a tan head. Aroma has some chocolate, as well as some roasted malt and a bit of smoke. The flavor is more of the same. The smoke and roasted malt notes are complimented by some nice chocolate. There is also a hint of grass. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Very nice.

Brown/black with a poufy brown head. Aroma is lightly roasty with mild piney notes. Taste is the same, and mostly clean into the finish, with lingering roast. Finn (8149) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 2, 2013
Flaske 0,65 l. spandert av Rune i Skibotn 6 Okt 12.Svart. Høyt mokkafarget luftig skum som varer ei lita stund. Svak sjokoladearoma med innslag av røstet malt. Smaken er røstet malt med sjokoladepreg. Mye bunnfall. Habanero (4848) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2012
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a medium sized tan head, leaving a fair lacing. Nose of roasted malt and notes of coffee. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Light to medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft CO2. A very nice schwartz.★★★

On tap at Urban Family Public House, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt and some bittersweet cocoa. Flavour is pretty subdued, with dry bitter cocoa, bready malts – pretty bland / flat, with no life / body. Whether this is the norm or not, I’m not sure. Disappointing stuff. ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2012
Nice black pour with a creamy, tan foam. Roasty aroma with notes of coffee and malts. taste is also roasty, with mild fruityness and subdued maltiness. A very good schwarz beer! _angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2012
Bomber bought @ beermerchants.com. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a big frothy brownish beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet and malty with dark bread, liquorice root, charred wood, soil, burnt cereal, caraway, roasted hazelnuts, caramel and hay. Taste is slightly sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, moist soil, dark bread, charred wood, burnt cereal, bitter chocolate, lemon zest, hay and hints of wet stone. Mouthfeel is round, dry, smooth, tiny watery and medium bodied. Finish is bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark bread, moist soil, hay, burnt cereal, charred wood and dark roast coffee. Great schwarzbier! closey22 (2101) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Good looking black with nice tan head; slight metallic aroma, not much else; plenty of flava tho, roasty malt, herbal hops, slight acidicness in the feel; finishes crisp and dry with some grassy/herbal notes which are enjoyable; good summer swarzbier daje (4535) - NORWAY - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle shared by esp0r at our (ok probably not so) wild and insane #1000 milestone afterparty. Dark brown body with a low beige head. Looks kind of flat but luckily it aint. Aroma of bread, caramel, lightly roasted. Taste is also quite malty, joined by yeast and flowery hops. Thin body compared to other Port Brewings, but after all it’s a lager at 5% so that’s probably not so strange. Nice roasty-hoppy finish.
