JK (5632) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Tap at the brewery, while sitting in the sun in their outdoor area on the slopped street. Black. Thick, lacing head. Aroma of uncut forest, dirt, and moss. Roasted malt with some sweetness. Great palate. Maybe the best schwarzbier I have had.

On draught at the pub in Bamber. Has some good warm milk choc flavour and some bitterness on finish. Fine. Better than decent and I was quite drunk by this time.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear, deeper brown colored body with a slight mahogany hue. Inch thick, dense and frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is medium sweet malts with a touch of molasses, a light roast note, some raisin bread, and a light noble hopping. Flavor is similar. A light roast throughout with a bit of an noble hop note, some lightly sweetened malts with molasses hints, roast, bread, and a touch of spice. Finishes clean and dry with a light roasty bitterness and a bit of a sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and an active carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid schwarzbier. Clean, easy drinking, and flavorful. A touch sweet at times, but nicely balanced by the roasts and light hopping. Good one.

500 ml flip-top bottle from Wasana’s in Germany. Pours a very dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is a nice roasty malt and dark fruit, with some coco, smoke and nuts going on. Taste is more nutty but much of the same as the aroma. Palate is mellow and smooth. A really good Schwazbier!
