UPDATED: JUL 26, 2010 (draught) pours the darkest ruby colour with a frothy dark beige head. aroma of herbal hops and brown sugar, toasted malts, slightly musty but in a good way. flavour is the same, with lots of toasted grain, very smooth, with a slightly alcoholic roasted-bitter finish. medium-bodied with smooth carbonation.

TEJA (1820) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2010
A friend brought a bottle from Germany for a tasting. The tasting was one week after best before date and unfortunantly the beer was more like a Rodenbach than a Schwarzbier.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Great, true black color with thick beige head. Cola aroma has some coffee grounds too. Slick palate has a little diacetyl. The coffee flavors are pronounced and has a porter quality to it as well as coffee creamer but not in a bad way. Drinkable.

oh6gdx (23671) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2009
Draught@brewpub (as Schwarze). Very deep ruby red colour, close to black, with mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is quite much roasted malts along with some mild syrup and also mildly smoked wood, some grassy hops. Flavour is roasted malts, some smoked wet wood, caramel malts, some nuts, mild toffee as well as some tarry notes ("tervaleijona"like). Very pleasant brew!

On tap at the Brewery in Nuernberg. Ruby colored Molases flavors, only a little sweeter with a hint of smoke. Nice level of sweetness with flavors of nuts

Bierkrug (2130) - - DEC 10, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2008 A great black beer. Lives up to its name and is very smoth for its type of beer. Nice light brown head and crisp carmel. Outstanding beer.

armando629 (2453) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 16, 2008
I taked it away in a one-liter flip-top bottle. Poured dark ruby-black with a creamy, delicious lacing beige head.Characteristic earthy aroma with roasted malt,cacao, some sourish yeast. Moderated carbonation, fine tart, a mountain of roasted garins, coffe and dark chocolate, some earthy character. Lemony and roasted aftertaste. It was fine!!!

On tap at Altstadhof Brewpub, Nurnberg. Black with cream head. Quite a tarry, coffee impact right from the start then a heavy sweetness. Fruity sweetness, blackcurrant, right through with a dark roasted malt flavour. A reasonable beer.
