Pours a nice dark hazy-transluscent with a two-finger tan head an excellent lacing. Aromas of char, anise, biscuit, and ester swirl about the nose, and it's a pleasing aroma, albeit a subdued one. The flavor is a bit like the aroma--nothing offputting, but rather bland. Dark fruit, char, hints of cocoa and toast. The mouthfeel is excellent. Light, crisp, and with just a touch of dry bite at the finish. Very drinkable/repeatable.

Overall, an interesting take, although not really true to the style.

With a near-black ruby color, this beer has a mild, creamy roast flavor, where the cream roast is the main feature than anything. The aftertaste disappears really quickly and the aroma is mild, although that might be normal for a low alchohol beer. For a schwarzbier, this is a pretty good offering, as though it’s a beer you can kick back and relax with. Nevertheless, I recommend the Primator Premium Dark Lager, the Praga Dark lager, the Orion Stout from Intergalactic Brewing Company and even the non-alcoholic Malty and Maltstar from Israel.

Poor head retention; woody ebony body.

Aroma is neutral to the point of being boring. Sweet malt and not much else.

At first, it comes across more nuanced and balanced. However, a not-quite-cloying malty sweetness soon dominates. It's an unpleasant , cheap taste. Cola and prunes come to mind.

Lively and active, but a touch too oily.

This is a great tasting black beer with the right amount of hops, bitter earthy note, blends together beautifully

Poured from bottle into tulip, 1 finger tan colored head, recedes rapidly and so so lacing. Jet black in the glass. Very little on the nose, not much malt coming thru, somewhat bread like smell. Taste is mild, not much roast character, somewhat sweetened up i.e. like lactose. Not sure why but also getting a fennel/liquorice faint taste. Smooth and creamy on the finish. Seriously this is a somewhat non offensive beer, little in personality, but extremely easy to drink. I wouldn't kick it out of bed if it crawled in, but I certainly wouldn't invite it.

Drunk straight from a 12 ounce can in Sao Paulo Brazil. The nose is very subdued, malty sweet with a little grain, some chocolate and spicy notes; taste is sweet caramel malt with some warm fruit and chocolate, some graininess, very clean; carbonation is high, body light, easy to drink. There is nothing off or astringent or metallic. It's not complex. Pretty solid.

Poured into pokal.

Appearance: Small cream colored head. Deep dark black color.

Nose: Chocolatey malt, though it fades quickly.

Taste: Mostly a light sweetness from brewing caramel, some chocolate as well. Very light roast on the tail.

Mouth: light and smooth.

Not a bad schwarzbier, though not one of the greats. A step above most pale import lagers, but still relatively light. Like most beers brewed south of Texas, it goes well dressed with salt and lime.
