Bottled. Deep amber colour, small brown head. Aroma is caramel, liquorice, mild hops and some slight roasted malty notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same with chocolate being there as well. Very nice. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2009
0.5 l bottle from Systembolaget. Very dark reddish brown. Sweet, worty, coffeish, chocolatey and licoricey aroma with hint of sulfur (scrathed matches). Sweet worty chocolatey and coffeish flavor with licorice and hint of smoke and nuts. Full bodied and smooth palate. Despite the sulfur aroma, quite enjoyable beer. hirigalzkar (3158) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2010 Bottle. I love smoked licorice. I love this beer! Lots of flavors (chocolate, coffee etc.), yet easy to drink and refreshing.
gyllenbock (9177) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2009
50cl bottle. Black with a quite small brownish head. Coffee, smoke, roasted malt, chocolate in aroma and flavor. Also some sourness in the flavor. Did feel something sweet in the finish and flavors of nuts. On the whole, a rather nice beer. finol (3389) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2009

Bottle, thanks to Fredrik. Pours a black colour with a nice beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Flavour is nicely malty and roasted with coffee, chocolate, and liquorice. Medium bitterness. Body is medium, and the texture is slightly oily. Quite dry. Very balanced and nice. Svesse (8601) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2009

Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark bread, dark fruit, well roasted grain and hints of chocolate. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and a dry, grainy finish with hints of dark fruit. Moderate bitterness. Medium body. Well balanced and nice. Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2009
500 ml bottle. Dark brown. Looks hazy. Small off-white head that clings to the glass. Motor oil aroma. Nuts and licorce in the nose. Refreshing flavours initially. Medium-bodied. Light nutty flavours balanced by a roasted dry maltiness. Nicely balanced, and quite nice for a schwartzbier. Unlike most of them this one has a personality.
