Green Man German Black Lager is a Schwarzbier. With Light Chocolate and Coffee flavours and a nicely balanced hoppiness. Although similar Black Lagers are milder and less bitter than English style Porters and Stouts

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 12, 2012
Deep black with a touch of russet with latte coloured head that sank into a thin film on top of the beer. Not bad looking. Charry aromas pervasive and dominant to the point of being one dimensional. Flavours of the same and cola? Not a huge body on it but soothing and cooling. Pleasant enough in its own way and true to style.

omega (886) - NEW ZEALAND - NOV 26, 2011
Smell good (dark chocolate undertones) and looks good (dark brown), but that is about where the positives end. Last bottle on the shelf and nearing expiry, this beer has little carbonation to it and the mouth feel is quite thin.
