Sold in Germany as Breznak Schwarzbier.
A secret weapon of Drinks Union, a beer of delicious taste, clear smell and typical colour. The drinker will be surprised by its pleasant taste, less sweet than with other dark beers. The dark Breznak won the most prestigious beer contest - Golden Cup PIVEX ´98.

tkrjukoff (4306) - SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2010
Pours deep dark brown with ruby notes with big fluffy tanned head leaving nice lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, hay, hops and bread. Crispy malty mouthfeel. Not too heavy body. Flavor is a bit pilsnery watery but sweet and dry hoppy with tones of roasted malts and caramel. Acidy watery palate. Finishes very dry hoppy and acidy. Very tasteful for a 3,8% beer.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2010
500 ml bottle, as Březňák Schwarzbier, bought at Rewe Getränkemarkt, Erding. ABV is 3.8%. Ingredients include sweetener. Mahogany coloured beer, big off-white to beige head. Strong sweetish malty aroma, notes of bakery / brown bread, caramel and syrup. The flavour is malty and slightly roasty, but not as sweet as the aroma made me fear. Decent hops in the finish balance the flavour nicely.

jaghana (5523) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle 50cl at Kaufland Offenbug DE. A brown ale with good head and very nice lacing. Smell in on caramel malt. Aroma is fantastic on dry dark chocolate, good hop presence, finish is long with dark chocolate and bitter coffee. Very pleasant and drinkable beer, quite dry, amazing chocolate aroma for a low alcohol beer like this, very good surprise. Near to some Irish stouts just less creamy.

Bottle 500ml. Pours a dark brown color with a medium brown head. Malty aroma, some coffee, caramel, chocolate. Not too sweet. Medium to low carbonation. Quite well-balanced, smooth and almost no bitterness here. Not outstanding, but good.

altonbrownd (5769) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle of Breznak Schwarzbier from Bierkoning. Dark amber body with healthy head. Nice malty nose. Malty taste, not so sweet indeed. Gets roastier and spicier in the finish. Quite watery, with a smooth texture.

inbirraveritas (1509) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 12, 2010
On tap at the "3rd Czeh Beerfestival", Budapest. Dark brown colour, creamy beige head. Smell of coffee. Flavour was of coffee, too. The aroma was of roasted malt and grassy hops with light yeasty notes in the back. Finish was coffeebitter and dry. Nice one.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - MAR 24, 2010
05/03 0.5 l bottle, as Schwarzbier. It poured dark brown body with medium sized brownish head. Coffee aroma, some slight caramel and pale malts. Caramel, coffee and slightly alcoholic flavor, bitterish. Weaker in body with shorter, watery finish. Not bad, just ordinary and rather boring Schwarzbier.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle@Home, 3.8% ABV. Strange how people rate low ABV beers low. Somehow there’s a connection? This is a very good beer. Not exceptionally good but it has a lot for a beer with only 3.8% ABV. It’s flavorful, balanced and has quite some body. I loved it.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2010
Purchased at Haupfmans in Hombruch, Germany. Thought the bloke looked a bit like Lenin so I picked this up. Pours a dark color colour with a small head. Nose is sweet with burnt malts, and apples. Taste is cola flavoured, sweet though not cloying. Roasted malts, apple, sugar, clove and some chocolate dominate. Unbalanced and rather thin with no real bite.
