Pours black, big brown head. Aromantic of toast, toffee, dark fruit. Taste has an interesting bitterness over the sweet malt and a dark fruitiness, some coffee. Mouthful is light. FatPhil (17080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2016
355ml bottle (Pien, Helsinki)Marduk (8408) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2016
Pleasant sweetish roasty aroma, a bit of burnt toast, but saying more dunkel than schwarz. Dar red, brief tan head. Thinnish palate, some burnt dryness. Some lactic aspect, also some hop pungency, but these things are fleet, and non-reproduceable. Bit messy. Dullish cerne, I’d prefer almost any czech one, but certainly drinkable. (And now I imagine Beer House Dunkles, from just round the corner, which nukes even the czech ones off the map.)
355ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Very dark brown, chestnut color. Medium size, beige-brownish head, stays. Nutty, sweet, roast, caramel, bit buttery in aroma. Roast, old wet carpet, nutty, husky, grainy in taste. Sharp, large bubble type of carbonation. Nutty, barley roast in aftertaste. Oily / buttery mouthfeel. Solid brew.

Can from my old buddy Brian. Pours a super dark cola color with a tan head. The smell is roasted dark malt, some molasses, coffee. The taste is as it smells with some dark fruit lingering as well then a dry roasty ending. The body is light with about average carbonation. Pretty decent overall and at 4% it’s a sessionable. ogre71 (359) - Utah, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Not a big fan of dark beers. But this one was very drinkable. Lots of malty sweetness smooth easy drinking. Would recommend.

12 oz. can. Pour was black with a off white head. Aroma was sweet coffee, roasted malts. Taste was sweeter, fresh coffee, chocolate, malty, roasted grain. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is a pitch black color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is chocolate and coffee. The taste matches the nose. An excellent beer. sinfull (1804) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Black color. Medium-sized , beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and bread. Roasted malt dominate in taste . Moderate sweetness with some smoky notes. Roasted bitterness at the end. Very good.

Excellent. Dark pour effemeral tan head, slightly sour aroma but not taste. Palate is light/lagerish, flavor nice hint of nut+earth. Excellent beer

Pour was brown black, no head or lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and nuts. Flavor much the same, diluted, old milk chocolate and stale nuts. Mouthfeel was thin and undercarbonated. A miserable schwarzbier.
