(Bottle into dimpled mug) I was rather surprised by this one. I expected a Schwarzbier to be black and heavy on the roast, to the point where I could taste it. This had none of that. The pour was a dark, deep brown, which is attractive, but when you can see through to the bottom of the glass, schwarz it is not! A thin head formed then was gone almost immediately. There was no real aroma I could put my finger on. There was a hint of a roast and a little pepper, but nothing remarkable. The drink itself was very disappointing. I expect something of this style to be a little thicker and have bold flavor. Upon letting this one sit for a while to warm, I found that the flavors did develop nicely and there was a bit of a caramel malt that came out and gave this some character. Still not my favorite, but not too bad afterall!

Pronounced chocolate aroma along with the typical toasted oats cereal and earthy dampness of a dunkel. Some caramel and malt too. Mild bitter taste and sweetness. Reminds me of a bread-cake food item with some chocolate here and there.

mctous (131) - Herndon, Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Surprisingly yeasty aroma for a lager. Pours with a slight, short-lived head. Light body, sweet without being syrupy, minimal hops, but plenty of yeast. Soft palate with a very clean finish.

muffel (130) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2010 Bottle 0.33l Pours a small white head which disappears quickly. Color is darkbrown (coke-brown maybe). Aroma is very soft and malty, some toffee, caramel, coffee and it has a light bitter aftertaste (getting stronger when warmer). Low carbonation, light to medium body. Very drinkable.

Nice dark amber color with a good amount of carbonation; off-white and moderate head; thin lacing; medium-bodied and very smooth; sweet and a little spicy on the tongue, with hints of caramel, malts, and chocolate; a little watery and very low on the alcohol; overall a very good brew.

RazingDreamz (123) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Dark brown color, not much head. Overwhelming roasty coffee aroma with some chocolate. Taste is of dark chocolate, butterscotch, and finishes like caramel. A little thin for my taste.

BT (123) - Westchester, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Poured a rich dark brown with a small white head. Aroma of molasses; body, very thin and watery with a nutty molasses flavor, dry finish.

mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Pours a deep, dark copper with a thin, white head that quickly fades. Moderate lacing. Malty, carmel nose with hints of some spices. Creamy, but slightly thin mouthfeel. Sweet taste, but not as sweet as the doppelbock from the same brewery. Not bad, but not as good as their Ur-Bock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for the Daystrom M-5

Dark brown in color. Aroma of malt and caramel. Sweet in taste with roasted malt notes

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.
