3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap at the brewery which is a damn nice place. had a big beige head peering out from the top of the ceramic mug, a quick pour of a few drops into a used hefeweizen glass showed it to be a dark brown with a purple tinge. aroma of sultanas, cocoa powder and a faint hint of some stewed fruit. incredibly lush in the mouth and then does a nice little disappearing act. hint of charcoal in the lightly bitter finish. all class, hard to imagine a better schwarzbier

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Altstadthof.
Head is mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (coffee, chocolate, roasted grain, husks), with a note of diacetyl.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.
Such a shame when a once-great beer is no longer so. Not as bad as the Helles, but very dull and disappointing.

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.

Draft at the brewpub. Wow ... another delicious offering at this little place! Roasty malt, toasty and finishing with a nice little mildly sweet flourish. I love little hausbrauerei! (#4380, 11/30/2011)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Draught at the brewpub. A huge dissapointment. I drove 13 hours from Copenhagen to Nürnberg just to taste this beer. And it sucked. Beautiful reddish brown coloured. Very buttery aroma with sour lactic notes. The same in the flavour. Very infected and very undrinkable. Brewpubs selling infected beer thinking they can get away with it are highly unserious. Altstadthof is one of them.
