Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 14, 2006
(On tap) Beautiful, deep mahogany with a reddish glow and a small, off-white head. Slightly impure nose with some burned malt. Medium body with lots of burned malt and an ashy edge. Bitter, burned finish. Apparently the brewery intended a Münchener Dunkel but ended up with a Schwarzbier - or rather a Dry Stout. Oh well, shit happens. Still a decent brew though. 270306

Oakes (12639) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2012
Medium brown with no head. Kind of unattractive that way. Lightly chocolatey aroma. Kind of thin, with some chocolate notes. Very simple and not very exciting.

on tap-pours an off white ring for a head and copper color. Aroma is mild, somewhat sweet medium malt. Taste is somewhat sweet medium malt, secondary spice hops (Hallertau?) light body plus a bit.

BeerandBlues2 (9730) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Tap at the source. Pours clear dark brown with a medium, frothy beige head, short retention with spare to good lacing. Aroma is roast, chocolate, and nutty malt with figs and spicy hops. Flavor is dark malt, light hops and bitterness, dark fruits and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

hopscotch (9171) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Draft... Clear, mahogany lager with a large, frothy, off-white head. Good retention and ink-blot lacing. The nose is fairly nondescript, but holds some very light notes of chocolate. The flavor is well-bittered. Astringent with lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Leaves the mouth bone-dry.

jercraigs (7894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
2012-03-17. Very dark brown black body, small creamy tan Head. 4+ Flavour is nice, light roast, mild sweet dark malt. Mild aroma, light roast. Smooth average palate. Simple but a good take on a schwarzbier and quite enjoyable. My favorite of their beers on this visit. On tap at the brewpub

Good chocolatey malt…Reasonable mouthfeel…Served a bit too cold but still not very assertive when it warms up…

rosenbergh (6866) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Draught at the Crescent City Brewpub, New Orleans, LA. Dark reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Roasted malt, coffee, liquorice, dryness and mild sweetness in the aroma. Dry roasted malt, dry hops, mild coffee and mild liquorice in the flavour. Very tasty. A truly nice surprise. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6802) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Dark mahogany-tinted brown with a moderate tan head. Roasted and burnt malt aroma is eclipsed by a bathroom mildew smell-- same as their red ale. Once again, dirty lines unfortunately killed this beer for me. I think it would be quite nice if it were untainted. Too bad.
