Une schwarzbier de 4,6 % abv, définie par son brasseur sur l’étiquette comme une dunkles, ce qui au niveau sémantique revient au même. Nous avons ici, en dehors du nom, du malt d’orge, mais aussi du maïs et du riz (on en rit), mais encore des antioxydants E 224 et E 316, et pour couronner le tout un petit stabilisant E 405 de derrière les fagots … Si avec tout cela, vous n’êtes pas contents, vous êtes compliqués !! Mon exemplaire était à 1 mois avant sa date. Couleur brun foncé, à l’opacité forte. Mousse beige moyen, crémeuse, stable à 4 mm (mais de façon artificielle). Arômes de malt, maïs, candi, cassonade. 1ère bouche très molle, sur maïs, caramel, candi. Arrière-bouche sans caractère, courte. 2ème qui enfonce le clou, et bien profond .. Arrière-bouche de marmelade. Toute la suite est du même acabit. Jambes collantes. Levure élémentaire. Alcool nul, il est sur la planète xingu, en passant par l’amazonie … Finale sucrée en diable. CONCLUSION : bière qui est un sirop de glucose, ou pareille à ces boissons maltées sans alcool qui sont des concentrés de sucres de malt .. Et surtout, c’est une bière offensante pour les peuplades dont elle porte le nom … (excusez-moi, il n’y a pas de zéro sur ratebeer .. puritanisme !!).

Bacchus66 (337) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 8, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours nearly black with a thin tan head with decent lacing. Roasted malt and cocoa powder nose. More chocolate in the flavors, with some syrupy sweetness, but finishes drier and roasty. Light bodied with medium carbonation.

Bill Becker (1032) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 23, 2017
Black but not black enough to hide the reddish hues. The off white foam approaches tan. The smell is roasty sweet with chocolate. Chocolate, sweet malt, roasted malt in that order. Body isn’t bad for the style and abv. Pretty good DL.

MarcoBasile (415) - DENMARK - JUN 8, 2017
Pours deep brown colored body that is very dark in the glass. Frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet dark malts, some chocolate and brown sugar. Taste is sweet as well. Malts, dark fruits and chocolate and brown sugar. Smooth mouthfeel, Watery texture, soft carbonation.

Nice label, awful beer! This is one of my favorite beer labels of all time. The diamond shape is so unique, and I love the naked guy. But the beer was sweet and skanky, which is not my preference.

Svartvit (574) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2017
Bottle shared at the May THT. Pours a close to black with a small tan head. Like a roasted pilsner.

Maakun (5548) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2017
Bottle at THT. Very dark brown with off white head. Sweet malts, toffee, light toffee, lots of cardboard, light bready. Quite sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied.

BeerRenter76 (1014) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Originally rated on 2/10/09. Aromas of toasted malts, licorice,and sweet caramel. Appearance is a deep black, but rather thin body, thin cap leaves thin lace. Flavor is similar to the aroma with the toasty malts, and sweet caramel its a little on the watery side. Overall it lacks flavor and depth but it is a decent enough beer
