bobinlondon (1258) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2009
Gravity at Zeitgeist Bier Mania Oktoberfest 08. Deep ruby black with a dense beige head. Roasty and chocolatey with smooth carbonation. Hops are slightly tinny. Not so rounded for a German beer but far more interesting than most.

Dedollewaitor (14338) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2009
Tap @ Brewpub. Pours dark brown with a creamy head and lacings. Nose is vaguely roasted and has lots of caramel and liquorice. Smooth and full bodied. Hard roasted flavor with bread and caramel. Very nice. One of the best Schwarzbiers Ive had.

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2009
Very dark brown. Slightly chocolatey, cocoa aroma is sort of fresh. Toasty, biscuity palate with hints of cocoa. Slightly thin. The body is a bit charred, not my type of schwarzbier.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Draft at the brewery. Black, pretty much opaque with a slight red tint. Fizzy but lasting beige head and no lacing. The slightest hint of diacetyl is here, strange! Wet grain aromas. Brisk carbonation is light and refreshing. Nice toastiness and burnt qualities. The sourness is strange but falls just short of being offensive.

asheft (2655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2009
[bottle] Nice toasty aroma with some plums and coffee. Clear, but practically opaque garnet with a lasting and lacy tan top. Nicely balanced sweet base malt with smoothening liquorice and bread crust flavours that end in a pleasant bitter bite. Even a little bit of hay and lotus root. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter in the finish.

(draught, at the Gaststätte Klosterbräu, Bamberg) pours a dark ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of roasted malts, light herbal hops and butter. flavour of grainy roasted malts, with strong coffee and light butter notes. medium body and carbonation, light roasted-bitter finish.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2008
Brewery tap. A black colored beer, with a thick dark beige foamed head. The aroma of dark malts, caramel and hops. The taste of dark fruits, like prunes, a little bit chocolate malts, with a nice hopbitter. A nice smooth after bitter. When the temperature of the beer is rising, the chocolate taste is stronger.
