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.

GABBF 08 - This was just alright, not something I want to go searching after again. Kind of a mild malty aroma, with a little tiny bit of smoke, soda head fades away quickly. Bittersweet and bready, with some caramel maltiness, and a slight bit of roast. Disappointing for the style.

OldMrCrow (2402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2006

Pours deep brown with red highlights and a long-lived head. The aroma is sour and musty, with plenty of dark brown bread and a suite of off-aromas that I cannot place. Flavor is again brown-bready, mildly sweet, a bit roasty, but overall unimpressive if not a little bit off.

After the very good Oktoberfest from this brewery, I’m disappointed.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2005
GCBF. Pours a dark brown. Some malt in the nose. The flavour was not what I was expecing, malty but some other unwanted flavours as well, exaust, rotting vegetables. I wish I could try it again sometime.

natrat (66) - Ucluelet, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2005
GCBF. Poured a nice dark roasty colour. Looked really appetizing with it’s small ring of white head. Nice malty smell, with a touch of acid tang. Taste was somewhat disappointing, with the malt flavour being dominated with phenolic and off flavours. Dusty taste, like the keg hadn’t been cooled....EVER. Glah. Too bad, it looked and smelled great. I hope it was just this batch....

22 oz bomber. Beautiful look on this beer. Nice head, leaving a bit of lace, but all the niceness ended after that. Flat, cardboardy taste that couldn’t be blamed on bad tap lines. Thin, watery... hate to say it, but a macro would taste better than this. A real disappointment.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bomber. Pours a dark, mahogany color that shines a translucent crimson color in the light. A minimal, fizzy, light khaki head disappears quickly, leaving zero lacing and a glassy surface. The aroma shows stale black patent malts, cereal grains, hints of cardboard, and sourdough bread. Not good, and totally unnatural. The flavor is even worse, sour yeast overpowering the dark malts, with more stale cereals grains lending a wet cardboard component. Thin, astringent, and under carbonated, the palate is just as much a disappointment as the rest of this beer. Pretty much a drainpour.
