Pours a dark cola-brown with tinges of deep red and purple. Has a medium khaki head that leaves nice, sticky lacing. Deep roasted chocolate and caramel in the smell, with notes of coffee. Also smoky, with a peppery spiciness, like a well-done steak or pork roast. Taste carries on the smokiness, with roasted malts bordering on burnt. A light hoppiness also makes its presence known in the back half of the swallow, along with a burnt bitterness that hits after the swallow. Also catching some sweet prunes. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not particularly well-balanced. There are a lot of flavors in there that seem to compete with one another. Milter (901) - Nyborg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2017 En god traditionel lager. Dejlig mørk med en dyb karakter. Absolut værd at drikke. GarageBrewer80 (512) - SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2015
Flaska från SB. Mörkbrun färg med stor smutsbrun skumkrona. Doft av saltlakris och mörk lite rökig malt. Medelfyllig kropp. Lätt torr smak av mörk choklad och salmiak. WABeerFiend (413) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler in late 2013.
A: Black as night. No head.
S: Coffee, malt.
T: Coffee, malt, caramel.
M: Quite a bit of carbonation. Feels a little too watery too.
O: Enjoyable, but there are better schwarzbiers out there. McNeillR (2313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Opaque dark brown and a ringed eggshell head. Soft choc, softer roast, battery tinny. Soft choc initial taste and little else. Medium carbonation and grippy mouthfeel. Finishes not too bad but not too rusty.

Bottle. Very dark red color. Medium-big head which lasts. Aromas of toast, dates, caramel and chocolate. Really nice. In flavor dates, vanilla, chocolate. Full body. Sweet. Chocolate aftertaste. Wow. This is example of how lager beers actually can be flavorfull, and not so boring. Really good stuff.
