4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle- rich aroma, grapey like welches. smooth clean flavor, fruity, not really all that roasty . dry finish, mild bitterness in finish, well carbonated. black in color but ruby and clear when held to light. Nice tan well retinted head.
Bottle with twist off cap.
Pours pitch black with a one finger cappuccino head.
Aroma is very weak, just some light roasted malts.
Taste is sweet, malts and a bit of caramel, with a light roasted aftertaste.
Light body and watery but very drinkable.
Not so bad overall, sort of cheap light session starter.
p.s. this bottle was more than a year past the BB date... Niko100 (3014) - Chicago, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2018

Pours very dark brown, not much head. Ar9ma is a bit turpentiney, but some coffee, roast malt notes come through. Taste has an almost black cherry brightness, sweet, and chocolate, but an unpleasant sharp finish. On the thin side. A mix of pleasant sensory notes with off things. dmctaster (106) - Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2018

Bottle, early 2017. Caramel, light dried fruit, notes bordering on chocolate with nuts. Raisins, licorice, light wort, subtle fruity notes. Light sweet. Nothing wrong with it, also surprisingly complex. BudBlack (31) - GERMANY - DEC 22, 2017
Schwarz, mit schöner beiger Schaumkrone. Malzig in der Nase. Im Geschmack sehr süß, am ehesten lakritzartiges Aroma, insgesamt jedoch viel zu süß. Cunningham (8708) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2017
Black color with a fine tan head. Good lacing. Looks fine. Decent aroma also. Medium body and a mellow carbonation level. Balanced sweetness. Dark malt, some roast and some fruity notes. A quite fine and decent black Brazilian.seanleach469 (2) - - DEC 17, 2017 does not count

I am not a dark beer drinker but this beer is very smooth has a great taste and doesn’t make you feel heavy after drinking it. It’s a little pricy but well worth it

Pours black with a medium, dark head that lingers. Aroma is dried fruit and brown sugar. Taste is molassas and slight plum. Finish is slightly acidic. A drinkable, though not particularly exciting schwartzbier.
