Geiserich (3860) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 7, 2007
Big foamy, off-white head. Dark brown to black color. Fresh malty flavor, notes of roasted malt, toffee, light chocolate and cacao. Medium bodied, light bitter finish. Fresh malty nose, light fruity chocolate note. Pleasant and complex beer.

rauchbier (3699) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2004
Tap, at the brewpub. Hazy chestnut red, moderate off white head and low condition. Roast barley dominated aroma with some chalky yeast. Thin roasted notes in the mouth and low chalky yeast in the finish. Would have liked a bit more body in this one.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2008
Near black colored with red hints. Little light brown head. Sweet caramelly aroma with licorice and handmade yeasty note too. Good one, though not the most traditional schwarz beer aroma. Flavor is more dry with still caramel and licorice, aftertaste has yeast with some lemon. Good beer.

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

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2004
On draught at Altstadthof. Aroma of toasty malt, dark brown sugar and some breadiness, also faint fruitiness (yeast esters?). Attractive deep mahogany hue, clear, with a creamy and lasting head. Flavor is similarly malty and sweet, some light chocolate and pumpernickel notes, with a very fruity, again apparent yeast character in the finish, along with traces of licorice. Mouthfeel is smooth and lightly carbonated, medium-bodied. Very pleasant.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Pours dark brown with a red gleam and a fine though disappearing tan head. Lots of milk chocolate and creamy notes in the aroma. Full and nicely balanced. Sweet smoooth chocolaty flavor with toffee, malt and brown sugar. Really tasty and highly drinkable. Thanks a lot ChristianSA :-)

TAR (2526) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Draught at Hausbrauerei Altstadthof: Penetrable black. Fizzling off-white head mostly dissipates. Dull and uninviting nose of medicine, plum and cola. Lighter shades of minerals, dark chocolate truffles and earthy cocoa. Watery and flimsy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Overbearingly acidic roast clashes with potent chocolate. Extremely flabby with a faint overripe plum and medicine edge. Ensuing notes of paint and plastic exacerbate the fusel sharpness. Some malty lushness is vaguely perceptible, with much of it being obscured by the rotting plums. Finishes with a cola-like sweetness and malt-deadening fruity twang. Very muddled, limp and colalike, poor malt definition, etc. Quite lackluster. And apparently this was once a reputable schwarzbier worth traveling for. Bummer that no longer seems to be the case.

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!!!
