In Saxony’s mountain capital, the Mountain Beer Festival was a day of joyous celebration. From this tradition comes our Schwarzes Bergbier. As fresh as joy, as aromatic as a beautiful summer day, and so dark that stars twinkle in the glass. Enjoy an excellent beer made in the brewing style of Freiberg. Brewed in accordance with the German purity law.

bartlebier (2057) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2015
50cl bottle bb 04/2015, roadtrip souvenir through near-Freiberg to Freiburg. Aromatic nose of candied malts, roast and dark fruit marmelade. Savoury, metallic/herbal/brothy edge which I appreciate in this style. Taste is a well-dosed mix of prominent liquorice, dry caramel, coffee powder and malt extract with a nice nettle-herbal hop lining. Nothing sticky or dull and immensely drinkable no-nonsense old-timer. Underrated imho.

Senka (717) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 31, 2014
On tap in Freiber. Freshly brewed. Simple and straightforward schwarzbier. Reminds of a good Estonian kali. Malty with a strong caramel taste to it.

McTapps (4726) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 23, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with steady low head and smooth body. Aroma of malt and torf. Taste of malt, dark roasted barley, dark grains, dark bread and caramel. Light finish of chicken stock - something I very dislike in Schwarzbiere (not in chicken stock itself, btw). Drinkable nevertheless but just very average stuff.

MichaelAwesome (4724) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 23, 2014
Etwas zu stark in Richtung Huehnerbruehe, dazu noch etwas Malz, ein wenig Kaffee und ein paar Nuesse. Gluck gehabt, weil kalt getrunken, denn der Abgang erschien schon ein wenig unangenhem. Ich wollte es moegen, aber ich kann auch nicht gegen mich selber ankaempfen.

ElDesmadre (1762) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of grain, caramel, a subtle roasted-earthy note, a tad coffee. Dry with a minimal sweetness and a short, light roasted and coffeeish finish. A good table beer.
