duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2007
Draught@Klosterbräu, Bamberg. Really nice Schwarzbier. This shows some lovely subtle roasty characters. Finish shows some light grassy characters from the hops. The palate is quite round, and it really very pleasant to drink. Good stuff.

Draft. Dark brown to black. Thick tan head. Very light tasting for a schwarzbier, could taste malt, hops, etc. Very good.

thebeertourist (5179) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown with a rocky offwhite head. Roasted malts aroma with hints of coffee and chocolate. Flavours are good roasted malts with caramel sweetness in the background. Bittersweet chocolate aftertaste. Medium body. A very good schwarzbier.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 2, 2006
Draught at the brewery, very dark with a very large slightly beige pillowy head. A complex aroma, roasted malt with rich chocolate. Strong roasted flavours with those chocolate notes, smooth and not too dry at first, but a good long dry finish. Delicious.

Øl fået på arbejdet. Sort. Alt for brændt smag - men har lakrids duft.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2006
Draught @ Klosterbrau, Bamberg. Dark red. Some malty nutty caramel. Light earthy bitter flavours towards the end. Not bad but seems a bit thin. But as with a UK mild makes an oddly suitable thirst quencher in summer weather, if a bit strong for knocking back.

Dark colour with a roasted aroma with caramel. Mouthfeel is a bit watery with lots of toffee and mild bitterness.

fonefan (43533) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2006
Draught @ Klosterbrau, Bamberg. Very dark black with a light brown large head. Slightly sweet and aromatic aroma of dark, toasted malt with liquorice and milk chocolate, also a delicate hoppy background. Light roasted malty, light chocolate, dark fruits taste.

MiP (15253) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2006
Draught. Almost totally black colour. Big, stable light brown head. Malty aroma with a hint of sweet liquorice. Very roasted flavour with a little malt bitterness making it almost Irish stoutish. Hint of smoke. The mouthfeel is not as thin as most Schwarzbiers. Mild, but prickly carbonation. Not a typical Schwarzbier, but better.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2006
Bottled. A black coloured beer with a decent but short-lived off white head. The aroma has some sour milk, a little coffee and a touch of cocoa powder. The taste is tainted by sour milk also. A lightly roasted malt background saves it from being nasty, together with some dusty chocolate. Maybe a little infected?
