Watery and thin. Overall, a nice black lager but could use a bit of a malt kick-in-the-pants. Errs on the mild side.

A silky smooth beer, with a nice mix of malt/hops and a hint of chocolate. It has the makings of a great beer, but the taste is too mild. Leaves a slightly bitter finish.

I do catch a hint of Saaz in the nose, but there’s not much else going on here.

Dark amber lager look in this schwarzbier. First whiff is full of the typical pilsner smell. Fortunately, as the beer warms, a malt-molasses aroma predominates. This rich malt-molassesness dominates the flavor as well. A tingling sensation encompasses the mouth as the sharp maltness soaks in. This beer has a large barley-feel. Not bad, but this beer has a quality of staleness.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2002
Malt city, grainy smell and syrupy texture. Very little hop presence to my nose/taste. I didn’t sense Saaziness at all. Could this be oxidation? The best before dates were not notched, but instead it had a ’Code Number’ that looked suspiciously like a date (09 12 02). Anybody have a bottle handy?

Deep in color, malty smell. Dry, but has a good texture in the mouth.

Smooth stuff, I wonder what this would be like on tap. Not particularly ’Schwartz’ in color, but quite dark, light tan head peters out. Not as robust as similar DAB product, but at 4.9% one could slide this back all day and not be overpowered by the alcohol or aftertaste.

I tried the Schwarzbier version, although the Dunkel was sitting next to it on the shelf...Hummm. Dark brown to black, very prominate decoction derived aroma, light bodied, some roast flavor. Bitterness medium to medium low. The main trouble I have with most European beers sold in the US is the oxidation, it’s a long trip from there to here!
