On tap at the brewery in Nuremberg. Dark brown beer lasting tan head. it’s a slightly treacle flavoured schwarz. Nit great not much hop on the finish yet it has a spicy finish. Ok. Less good than the blond amd neither worth coming to Nurnberg for.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour, red edges, fluffy white head. Aroma of nuts, choco, caramel, toasted elements. Flavor followed, malt heavy, depth of an altbier there, but not enough hops or dryness in the finish. Not a classical schwarz style, only called so to emphasize that it is dark. Actually dunkel is a better classification, not far off from a Munich dunkel especially as found in Franconia, where dunkel is generally light and way off from a munich dunkel. Finish was a bit malt sticky with light carbonation. A nice brew, not highly drinkable.
