Ich bin eigentlich nicht der Dunkelbier Trinker, aber das Schwarzviertler von Faust kann man auch im Sommer im Biergarten trinken, am besten vom Fass, da kann die Flasche natürlich nicht mithalten. #Unvisibleviewer

Sampler glass at the Faust Braustuble, Miltenberg am Main, Bavaria. Brown with off white head. These beers have the benefit of not being over gassed, bonus. Sweet toffee, caramel malt notes to the fore but not in an overly cloying way. Lasting but not a great follow through of other flavours. It’s reasonable.

Chopper925 (111) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle. Clear dark brown, fine, lacing beige head. Aromas are light, a bit roasty, grassy. Taste is rather dry, refreshing sour, decent bitter. Fizzy carbonation, medium texture. Has the aftertaste of a Schwarzbier, really pleasant, roasty malty with the fresh taste of hop.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Karamell, leicht würzig. Geschmack angenehm röstmalzig, leichte schokoladige Noten, leicht würzig.

Erzengel (2327) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2013
Schöne dunkelbraun-rörliche Farbe, frisch-malzig-süßlicher Geruch. Der Antrunk ist süffig-süßlich und etwas wässrig. Zum Hauptteil hin wird das Bier etwas voller und schön malzig-trocken, Hinzu kommt eine leicht süßliche Note (Waldhonig, wie als ob das Bier schon anfängt, schlecht zu werden). Der Nachgeschmack ist frisch und schön malzig-trocken. Sehr süffig, allerdings insgesamt etwas wässrig. Es kommen aber schöne Röstmalzaromen heraus – dunkle Schokolade, Espresso.
--> leckeres Dunkel, schön durstlöschend und auch aromenreich. Allerdings leider omnipräsent wässrig!

A - pours dark amber beer with a small off-white head. Almost no lacing S - Smoked malt and toffee aroma, there are some caramel notes too. T - smoked myself again, sweet with the right amount of bitterness to balance. There are caramel and smoke notes too. M - feels medium bodied with medium carbonation, refreshing finish. O - overall an excellent Dunkel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Today’s contestant is their Schwartzviertler Dunkel. [As an aside, I noticed Brauerei Faust finally updated their website to acknowledge the existence of their specialty beers, as well as having their own online shop now, where you can get their "Rare Beers" from them cheaper than from Biershop Bayern.] On the back label: Fiery, dark beer specialty with selective special malts. Roast malts aromatic with light smokey caramel and bitter chocolate notes. Full-bodied drink with a dry finish. I’m not so wild about the statement of ingredients which lists hop extracts. I don’t care what other breweries, craft or otherwise, use, but to me this is selling out for profit. Also notice the best buy date is July 3, 2013, only 6 months from now. Let’s see if their hype stands up to reality. I read about it the Schwarzviertler Dunkel in this month’s Brew Your Own, which doesn’t have an online link, yet, but probably will after their next month’s issue comes out. All I could find is their blurb for the article: The Faust Brewery in Miltenberg, Germany brews a “shady” dark lager, similar to a dunkel, but employing some unusual techniques and ingredients. They published a recipe for this beer, which some dude with a blog tried his hand at brewing, and he posts the recipe for 5 gals: 20 ounces Munich Malt 9 ounces Smoked Malt 3 ounces Carafa III Malt 6.6 pound Munich liquid malt extract 1 ounce Perle hops (8.9% alpha acid) White Labs 833 German Bock Yeast In the BYO article, they say the name Schwarzviertler comes from the fact that is the name of the neighborhood brewery, which sits under sandstone cliff, not allowing the sun to get in, hence the "shady" above. Schwarz = black, Viertel = neighborhood/quarter, so Schwarzviertler = someone/thing who comes from the "black neighborhood." In Miltenberg, which I’ve visited a few times over the years, and is only 50 minutes by car from FfM, this basically is a picturesque, narrow road of old, 400 or less years old, Fachwerkhaüser, or half-timbered houses, about a mile long. Now let’s drink this beer. The color is dark brown amber with lots of red tints. The color is not as dark as I expected, but it’s fun to look through. Aroma is full of malts, Müncher and Pils malts with caramel and a little hops. The taste... wow! Malty with Pils taste but so much more. A tiny hint of smoke and some sweet, somewhat chocolatey aftertaste. Bitterness is there, not so much from hops, but it’s still there. It’s not too thin, either. It’s got a great mouth-feel, giving a cozy, lovely feel over the tongue. Overall, a lovely, very complex beer. The only disappointment is that my girlfriend likes this beer so much that I have to open another bottle just to finish this taste-test. Again, wow... it’s sweet, with light chocolate hints, malts and a bit of smoke, but not the majority taste, with just enough hop bitterness to balance it well. It doesn’t taste at all like a Pils at all, but it doesn’t taste like like an ale, but really close. I love this beer and I hope everyone gets to chance to drink it. The regular beers from Faust may not be world beaters, but the Schwarzviertler is a really unique beer. It’s worth ordering or finding a bottle and experiencing this wonderful beer.
