500 ml bottle. Dark reddish body with a small, but dense beige head. Strong aroma of roasted malt, caramel and chocolate. Flavor is mild, dark malt, dark chocolate and moderate bitter. Very nice, but not outstanding. Pyrmir (6126) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle a ÖÖWF 2012. Aroma weak, the only notes that sticks out are the burnt ones. Tastes burnt and unbalanced. ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle. Black body, huge light beige foamy head which dies after a short while. Nose is licorice, leather, coffee and hints of roasted bread. Taste is light coffee, toast and hints of leather. A bit boring and thin, but hey - what do you expect of a Schwarz? visionthing (5406) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 15, 2012

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.

0.5l bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm, This one pours a near black body - or actually it’s black with a nice tan creamy head. The aroma has chocolate ice cream, dark malts, caramel and hints of cardboard. It has a average carbonation level and a silky and rich mouthfeel. Quite impressive for a 5 percenter actually. It’s quite dry and chalky in the flavor with tones of roasted or burned malts, lots of cold coffee, some leather hints and a light bitter finish. Not a horrible Schwarz at all, but not completely my thing. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2009
0.5 L bottle from Systembolaget, Charlottenberg. Two-finger, mostely diminishing, beige head. Black body with almost no clarity. Fairly dry malt aroma, medium roasted, pepper, dark bread, mild coffee and some fruit tones. Taste is light to medium sweet and dominated by sllightly roasted, ashy dark malts. Notes of burnt caramel, English licorice, milk-chocolate and coffee ground. Mildly hopped, some salty undertones. Slick mouthfeel, not very filling.
Dryish, powdery chocolate finish. jesperhammer (4788) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2010
03-DEC-2010, bottle @Ulkløbben @Henrik, from Systembolaget "Boräs".
Dark dark brown.
Roasted, brown ale like nose.
Taste is fine roasted as well, but the brew turns very thin. For a schwartzbier it is fine. I guess I just hoped for a bit more.
Still fine brew. stouby (4669) - Holbæk, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2010
