Sample at the Beers from the Bikes Villes tasting on 11/08/2013. The beer is a solid black color with a medium beige head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing. Malt, citrus and hops in the nose. Light to medium body with a roasty character of malt and chocolate, along with some citrusy hops and licorice in the background. The finish is sweet with a roast malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Pinball (11981) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle at home. pitch dark, gigantic foamy light brown head that settles relatively quickly.roasted malty notes, woody citrussy note, could be infected, it was a little lively when opened.Quite complex aroma with notes of cocoa beans, coffe beans too. nice. Flavor is warming, cocoa, roasted malts, finest chocolate, very nice subtle chilies like bitterness, things play very well together, and it is not at all infected in any way.unusual and very flavorfull and tasty beer, lots of taste for the 5.9% abv. Quite not like Your usual schwarzbier, but very drinkable, very enjoyable

Thanks Doug, I style I like. This one somewhat coffeeish and dry, like an Irish stout. Some smoke. Black with reddish highlights and lacy.

rosenbergh (11042) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2014
22 oz bottle. 6.0%. Bottled on 9/23/14. (The Greenville Beer Exchange) Greenville, SC.
Black colour with a small tan head. Dark roasted malt, coffee, mild sweetness and some hops in the aroma. The flavour is roasted malt, strong hops, bitterness and coffee. Much stronger, hoppier and more roasted than the German ones. Good beer though but not true to original German Schwarzbier.
