Medium body, average carbonation. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle. A dense, two-finger dark beige head forms over reddish dark brown body. Nice lacings. Roasted, almost burnt aroma with a spiced and hoppy touch. Some dark berries too. It’s a bit too carbonated I think, medium to full-bodied and quite smooth. Lightly acidic, with roasted malts, dried fruits and a pleasant bitterness. Lasting finish with raisin notes and a good bitterness that lasts, of both the hoppy and roasted kind. Certainly a nice one, maybe not the most true to style schwarzbier, but good. 120324 HenrikSoegaard (14176) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2012

From notes. First reviewed 9/22/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip. Thanks to Dunt for bringing this over.
Mahogany with transparent edges and a creamy tan cap that fades.
A little bit of bourbon, dark malts, molasses, and some chocolate.
The flavor is a little bit strange. The flavor is light - chocolate, molasses, dark unroasted malt, some bourbon. It finishes kind of watery.
Somehow this has a creamy feel but a watery body. Boozy in the back of my throat. Sticky.
This is all right at best. In terms of barrel aged beers, it does not stack up well, though. Habanero (4680) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2012 Bottled. Pours clear black with a brownish glow and a small tan head. Fair lacing. Nose of roasted malt chocolate and notes of coffee + bourbon. Sweet flavor with chocolate, roasted coffee and bourbon. Medium to full bodied, creamy to oily texture and soft carbonation. Ends up more dry and slightly bitter. Quite complex for a schwartz beer.★★★ Hermod (7879) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2012
33cl bottle from Ölbutikken. More black than brown, lacing beige head. Aroma has light roastedness, light vegetable aroma and some bread. Flavor is roasted malt and lots of caramel. Dry, hoppier finish. Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2012
0.33l bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Pours a deep brown body with a small quickly fading and bubbly tan head. Light roasted and some sweet chocolate with a faint faint acidic vinegar touch. Average carbonation and it has a somewhat thin and light texture. Yeah, definitely something sour here alright. Thin chocolate, coffee with cocoa hints, is it wild yeast in this one? Licorice in the quite sweet finish and a distinct hoppy bitter aftertaste. It kinda grows a bit on you this one. Started off quite septic, but when I put away all prejudiced thoughts I have when it comes to the schwarzbier genre, it’s actually quite delicate. 27.01.2012 Idiosynkrasie (7533) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2012
355ml bottle. Opaque black with medium to huge frothy beige head, collapsing to a thin film. Bitter chocolate aroma, bitter hop accompanied, decent roasty notes. Taste has also dark bitter chocolate, grain, a matallic note, in the course nourished by sweeter chocolate notes.
