The Baron Schwarzbier is a classic German black beer.  The color is black with tinges of ruby and brown.  The flavor is full and crisp.  The Schwarzbier starts with a slight roast flavor upfront followed by a faint chocolate body with a very crisp clean lagered finish.  A very full yet drinkable lager.

Hazy dark brown colour. Very fresh malty aroma - it is a Baron beer after all. Light coffee flavour, fairly light but again quite fresh. Lacks the depths of dark malt I’d expect in a schwarzbier...it’s more of a dunkel but even then the freshness is more accented than the complexity.

Bomber from Sondra. Blackish color with ruby translucence. Beige head that left quickly. Aromas of dark roasted malt and perhaps coffee and chocolate notes. Near medium body with light, fizzy carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour dark roast malt. Finish is rather balanced. Fairly refreshing.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pours a medium mahogany brown with a rather lively light brown head. aroma of coffee with fruity nuances. Palate is on the thin side and slightly overcarbonated, with flavours of coffee, chocolate, with a reedy vegetal note in the end. Just okay for me, not as roasty as I like.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2005
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Dark black with light ruby tints and a thick creamy tan head. Aroma is very toasty, with some nuttiness and a light noble hop aroma. Well lagered. Flavour is also malty, nutty, and toasty with some faint earthiness. Subtle noble hop flavour on the finish. Easy to drink with a bit of faint anise and sweet maltiness in the finish. These guys know how to do Germany proud.

22. Black with no head, lace, or visible carb. Mild roasty, cola-like nose. Fizzy thin body. Roasty, cola-like mid-palate, with a long cola finish. Needs a little breadth of flavor, and some more visible carb and head. Plenty of carb in the body; maybe a bit too much.

AmEricanbrew (6727) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 13, 2008
Black with a viscous brown head. Yeasty, dry, black malt aroma. Medium body. Creamy smooth dark malt flavors are mildly sweet with a taste of earthy molasses. Very little if any bitterness in the finish. Glug glug burp burp best describes this beers drinkability.

Draught @ Brouwer’s Cafe pours dark ruby, slight chocolate hue, large white foamy head, mild carbonation, with attractive lacing.   Malty nose, very slight toasted aroma, slightly nutty.   Smooth on the tongue, very lightly toasted malts, and a slight lactic twinge.   Moderate body & mouthfeel.   Finishes clean and rather nutty, along with a subtle toasted malt.   Seems almost like a heavy Brown Ale, but good nonetheless.
