3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Vom Faß im Altstadthof, Nürnberg. - Antrunk sahnig, stark röstmalzig mit Noten von Mokka und der milden Aromenfülle eines unfiltrierten Bieres. Wenig gehopft, was aber durch die Schwarzmalzaromen ausgeglichen wird. Herber Nachtrunk. - Schönes Dunkles. Auch in Literflaschen zum Mitnehmen erhältlich, leider stark überteuert.

1l bottle. Reddish dark brown body, light brown head. Aroma of coffee, dark fruits and creme. Pretty much like the aroma of a good stout. Lots of coffe in the taste with creme and dark fruits. Very balanced beer. I like it.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 13/V/13 - 1L swing top bottle @ Dieter’s place - BB: ??/XII, no year indicated, so not a clue as to it was this year’s December, or last year’s. (2013-464) Thanks to Dieter for sharing the bottle!
Clear red brown beer, big aery beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: caramel, bit earthy, overripe banana, bit lemony. MF: lots of carbon, light body. Taste: very unpleasant sourness, vinegar, bit of dried fruits. Aftertaste: very sour, lemony, vinegar. Clearly infected. Too bad.

Tap @ brewpub 01/02/13. Pours black with auburn tinges and a medium, latte-colored head. Aroma is caramel, roasted, chocolate, delicious. Strong chocolate. Taste is chocolate again, dark fruitiness, light roast. Palate is light with not much carbonation. Not as delicious as the aroma lets you expect.

Draft. Poured into a ceramic mug with a beige head. Light roasted malts, a hint of fruity sweetness, and a crisp finish. Very refreshing for a schwarzbier.

Tap in Nürnberg, dark-colored, sweet and malty, a little portery malt in with the fruit, some nice roast, faint hops. Malty but with sufficient balance, has nothing to do with a Schwarzbier as I know it, but it is sufficiently süffig!

Had this on tap at Schwarzer Bauer, Hausbrauerei, Nuremberg, Germany, Tuesday 5th June 2012 Pours very, very dark brown with an off-white head. Bubbles tingle in the mouth again this has a good soft carbonation and has a nice sweetness with caramel and some dark sticky fruit als present. A very decent beer much like the Maibock but not quite as good. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

On tap @ the brewpub. The head is robust, the body dark. It smells roasty. The taste is a bit roasty, malty, balanced. Good! 12/11/10/11/-/11

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Poured a very dark red body, blackish, with a tan head. Soft raisiny malty nose, nice, some coffee in there too. light taste, light chicory that goes into the aftertaste. some ho-hum hoppy bitterness, but it doesn’t detract much. The maltiness is fine enough, soft, but it all ends dry. Far better than the helles at least.
