Hmmmm... What is a black beer supposed to taste like? I was expecting something similar to a doppelbock, but this isn't. It looks like a stout, feels like porter. Malty sweet, with little hoppiness or roastiness. Interesting.

Pours a very black color. One finger brown head. Okay retention, okay lacing.

Aroma is malts, raisins, and that's about it. Hops, where?

Taste is watery. Malty, light raisin.

Mouthfeel is light and very watery. Very drinkable. Not bitter at all.

Overall, it's okay. Not amazing. I probably wouldn't recommend it nor buy it again.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Ziemlich schwarz mit viel Schaum. Eher süßlich statt der erwarteten Röstaromen

From old tasting notes. Opaque black, brown with a bubbly brown head. Sweetish roasted malt aroma, reminiscent of burnt caramel. Initially, a sweet roasted malt flavor that becomes bittersweet and then finishes somewhat dry like a London Stout. Nice lacing.

One of the few beers I would call DELICIOUS! A great first taste...that lasts.

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 !!).

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.
