fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2011
2011-05-17, bottle, 6-4-6-3-13=32
Very dark mahogany color, almost black. Both the aroma and flavor present caramel and chocolate, that seems to be heavily oxidised; there is some sweetness in the front, while it’s dier in the end, with also a bit of roasted malts. Unexciting.

2011-02-12, draught at the brauhaus, 7-4-7-3-15=36
Dark mahogany color; generous head. Nice delicate aroma of roasted malt. Malty flavor, sweetish, with a round mouthfeel, and a good chocolate and coffee component, delicate; the bitterness is quite low, although in the end the coffeish touch is more evident. Very good Schwarz.

Koelschtrinker (12147) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Laffer Malzantrunk, der sich auch später nicht verbessert. Etwas herb, trocken, später röstiger aber weiterhin mild. Langweilig. 5/6/5/6/7/5

Vladivostok (308) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2011
A very dark and roasty porter-like beer with a frothy head. I didn’t find another like it in Bamburg, although didn’t try all the brewers’ offerings by any means. Clear as far as I could tell and only lightly carbonated.

crossovert (8815) - Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 Vom Fass at Klosterbräu Bamberg. It is a tasty, somewhat refreshing Schwartzbier with a decent dark malt kick.

EdKing (2093) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2011
I’m pretty new to Schwarzla’s (black beers) so was intrigued to taste this. Colour was very dark brown, almost black, taste is very similar to a porter with roasted malt giving it a chocolatey flavour. Nice hoppy finish. Weight and body is thinner than a porter, and a touch thinner than I like. But a nice beer.

ogivlado (6167) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 20, 2011
swing top bottle 500ml. -Three weeks out of BBE. Dark amber coloured, small tan head that stays for a while, caramellish nose. Slight roasted malt, caramel and subdued coffee but quite thin and watery. Bitter and a bit metallic finish. So so schwarzbier, overated.

rosenbergh (8252) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2011
500 ml bottle. 5.2%. From bierzwerg.de.
Dark reddish brown colour with average tan head. Dry aroma of roasted malt, bread, liquorice and chocolate. Flavour is roasted malt, some dry hops, coffee, liquorice and some caramel. Very tasty Schwarzbier. One of the best.

EvilBuddha (69) - SLOVENIA - DEC 5, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2010 500 ml, BB reads 11. February 2011, into tulip. Clear yet still opaque dark brown, nearly black body with garnet highlights, topped by medium, semi-stable tan head.Aroma is rich Munich-like malt, aromatic sweetness and dark chocolate from roasted malt. Clear malty flavor with some metallic oxidation, coffee and dark chocolate from roasted malt. The chocolaty sensation lasts into the finish while aftertaste is roast and hoppy bitterness. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation and smooth, creamy texture. No burnt notes and clean lager character with complete absence of fruity esters.

planky84 (2338) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and coffee. Flavours of chocolate, vanilla, licorice, some herbs and a little coffee. Dry, smoky finish. Not too bad.

kappldav123 (5368) - GERMANY - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Deep black, nice head. Starts malty, modest sweet, a little bit smoky from the beginning. Also spicy, some caramel notes. Well balanced finish, warming, quite drinkable. Good beer!
