Bottle from Tanakaya in 2014. Dark chocolate and roasted malt nose with some light prune notes as it warms. Cola-like mouthfeel with average carbonation and a touch dry. More cacao nibs as it warms with some hot cocoa. Finishes clean, dry and chocolately with just a hint of sweetness. Very well-done.

Tap. At the Baeren pub. Really luxurious so close to the source. Big rich dark chocolate, mixed with some milk chocolate and mocha. Well balanced body. Smooth and decadent.

Dark body, small tan head. Faint malty aroma. Taste is pretty good, mostly malts. Soft mouthfeel, light carbonation. Mediocre all over.

5.5% from Rakuten direct from the brewery, served in a glass mug. A coca-cola pour with a beige/brown head. Chocolate, cocoa, & sweet malt aroma. The flavor is coffee beans, cocoa & a bit of chocolate in the finish though the body is a touch thin. Overall, quite good.

Botela. Black colour, beige medium head. Well roasted maltiness with dark fruits, bit smoke and bit chocolate too. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant flavour of roasted malt along with dark fruits and some chocolate and smoke. Medium pleasant bitterness. Nice Schwarz!

Keg at Goodbeer faucets. Dark chocolate brown colour with beige head that soon fades. Aroma is slightly chocoatey and a bit of savoury (soy sauce). Roasty malt. Taste is very smooth, touch of vanilla creaminess (chocolate milk maybe) but not that sweet. Savoury tang to it. Initial bitterness but then very creamy finish. Think I am a sucker for Schwarzbier.

Nah, don’t agree with the high reviews on this one. Bottle. Appears dark brown with no real head in glass. Aroma is a meaty smoke, not as much roasts. Flavor is similar: cured meat, ham, sweet malt. Despite all those seemingly rich flavors, the mid-body empties into a bit of a watery finish. Not bad, but I’m missing the ashy roasts that to me, make the Schwarzbier style stand out.

KyotoLefty (8754) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2008 Draught at Wachi. A beautiful, glowing, shiny black with a lovely, thin lacy head. Much nicer looking and more flavorful than the bottle. Rich burnt black malts, coffee, dark chocolate, cream/milk. Creamy, rich and thick. Excellent. (Old: Bottle, 3.7 points) Pitch black with a tall tan head. Burnt malt aroma, a bit creamy, some chocolate, caramel, a bit of coffee. Nice roasted malt flavor, dry, quite creamy. Light body. Not sweet. Chocolate and coffee come out as well. Medium flavor, not exactly full. Maltiness comes out in the finish well, with dry burnt flavors as well. Creamy and nice.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Draft @ Aldgate Pub: Dark black/brown, light head and lacing. Nose of sweet roasty coffee, light fruit and plum, dark cherry and grapes. The flavor is a bit chewy, sweet and raisony, clean coffee and plum. Good schwarz.
