ippopotamo36 (722) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 8, 2015
My last beer of my first trip to Franconia :-( Gravity keg (as the waitress reported) at the source in Bamberg-Germany. Pours chestnut skin color, dark with a frothy and tick off-white cap. Nose: dusty, a bit of these "burnt" malts, some well-hidden initial metallic notes, dry prunes. Mouth: frizzy-medium carbonation, round roasted malts, bread crust. Very balanced mouth and quite fresh. Easy to drink and tasty. Apparently I was lucky...the beers are not always in shape here.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2014
Fra fat på bryggeripuben 10 Okt 14. Ultradypbrun/svart. Filmskum. Aroma av karamell. Smaken er røstet malt & karamell. Svakt røykpreg og passe søt. Et behagelig øl.

Rune (9231) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Poured vom fass, 500ml, at the brewpub. Fading beige head to a deep black coloured body with rustic highlights. Nicely roasted malts on the nose. Dark caramel taste joined by coffee, roasted. Dark malty finish. Well bodied, but easy to drink. Likable (Bamberg 10.10.2014).

Marheb (3041) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
(Bue sur place): Une belle robe sombre laisse passer la lumière. Chocolat noir, caramel et mélasse se mélangent et se laissent compléter par une touche herbacée, poivrée.

Tap at the brewery. From old notes. Black, burnt malt, rich and creamy yet with a pretty light body, hints of fruit. A fabulous schwarzbier

Moravius (807) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Tiefes Schwarzbraun, klar; reichlich beigefarbener Schaum. - Nase röstmalzig-würzig und fruchtig (Schwarzkirsche). - Im Antrunk gediegenes Röstmalz, schwarzer Kaffee, Karamelsüße, Schwarzkirschen mit pikant-säuerlicher Note. Mild rezent, weich im Mund. Die Karamelsüße nimmt nicht überhand, da durch trockene Röstaromen austariert. Ausreichend hopfenwürzig-krautiger Hopfen im Abgang. Leicht erdig-röstmalziger Nachtrunk mit trockenem Kakao. - Schönes (wenngleich streckenweise etwas holpriges) Zusammenspiel von malzsüßen, pikant säuerlichen und erdig-bitteren Aromen - ein richtig gutes Schwarzbier. - Laut Etikett mit 5,2 % Alkohol und leider auch mit Hopfenextrakt.

Hugi (463) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2014
Black and opaque with a creamy tanned head. A bit roasty smell with notes of liquorice. Taste is very malty with notes of coffee/roastiness, toffee. Medium bitterness with a nice perlage.

Drunk on draft at the Klosterbrau tap in Bamberg. Lovely brown beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (2395) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
500ml bottle @ the 3rd Shrewsbury Bottle Share, courtesy of Jon. Pours a coca-cola black with a fading carbonation. It’s a month or two out of date so that probably explains it. Sweet toffee on the nose with a little in the taste and some additional malts but in general its Schwarzbier flavours seem a bit lacklustre. Need to try a fresh bottle really.
