Aroma is a little subtle, but rings of espresso and cacao. The malt is indeed black, rendering the beer a nearly opaque color in the glass. Despite the high caramelization in the malt, the beer finishes cleanly but gives you a moment to savor the work they put into it. Definitely a beer for those who like this style, but it will even appease those with preferences for something lighter.

Bottle pour with almost no head. Darker than a black steers tuckus on a moonless night. Nice coffee flavor that lingers just a bit too long. Smells faintly of locker room socks.

0.355l bottle @ Barleycorn. More or less deep dark cola colored with a small filmy sidesticking top. Smells a little roasty, dry. Dark dry caramelly. Some cardboard. Tates nice. Dark roasty slightly charred flavors. It has a thin oily texture in the mouth and itís just below average on the carbonation. Caramel and roasted grains. Easy and tasty enough. 16.06.2017 ebone1988 (1851) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2017

Dark brown color with a taller, lasting tan head. Aromas of dark roasted malt/black malt. Hints of dark cocoa, vanilla and peat. Not a powerful scent, one needs to search for a things. Fairly lifeless feel. Flavors of dark chocolate, dark roasted malts and some burnt sugar. Finish and linger are fairly dry. 2/12

Solid schwarzbier from Uinta, offering up a surprising depth of rich, roasty malt flavor for such a low-ABV brew. Modest mocha notes combine with a deep smoky undercurrent, leading to a stout-leaning back end with hints of raisin and anise. Finishes dry with a mild bitterness. Textureís good if a bit slight, and the nose is on point, full of rich espresso and smoke. TBone (17439) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottled 355ml (BB 05/2017, K-Supermarket Isolinna)mviljamaa (158) - Jyvšskylš, FINLAND - APR 13, 2017
Dark brown color, medium-sized beige head. Aroma has light aromatic hops, bread and caramel with light tartness and cooked vegetables. LIght-bodied. Bready, light acidic tartness, vegetables. Gone bad.
Pours with a lot of bubbly light brown foam. Color is black. Inviting aroma has hot chocolate, cappuccino, lemon candy, licorice. Palate is light and fairly balanced with airy carbonation. Taste has sour fruity notes, sour beer -like notes, a hint of pink grapefruit, lemon soda, some bitterness from hops. Very refreshing. A surprising lager that doesnít taste like lagers Iíve had before. Itís more like an IPA mixed with brown ale mixed with sour/fruit beer. Definite "will buy again". thegreenrooster (4373) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Pour is a black with some brown highlights around the edges. Aroma is a nice roasted malt with chocolate notes. Flavor is a little thin bodied but there is a nice roasted malt with some ashy dryness after the swallow. A little thin all around but probably the most flavorful 4% Iíve had.
