rauchbier (3593) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2004
Tap, at the brewery. Deep brown, almost black, good lasting pale coffee coloured head and gentle condition. Pleasant mix of caramel, roast barley and creamy coffee in the nose, which becomes more pronounced in the mouth although the sweetness is balanced out by the dry roastiness. Dry chalky finish with some coffee roastiness and a hint of chocolate powder right at the end.

MiP (13478) - 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.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - 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.

Maverick34 (2163) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2007
Draft. Dark brown to black. Thick tan head. Very light tasting for a schwarzbier, could taste malt, hops, etc. Very good.

Skinnyviking (6754) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2007
Draught. High and lasting creamy off-white head. Very dark red body. Amost black. Very dry and hopppy burned barley malt aroma. Pretty bitter and hoppy flavor with low carbonation and long aftertaste.

Ober (2807) - 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.

TAR (2437) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Draft at Klosterbrau Bamberg: Eclipsed chestnut. Creamy and persistent light-beige head. Intriguing, potently earthy nose of rustic dark malts, cheese curd, shoe polish, yogurty yeast, rum, leather and black plum. Firm carbonation. Deeply earthy and mineralic with a stiff punch of coffee grounds and a metallic twinge of roast, yet ever so delicate with a gradual development of malty depth and palate-caressing softness. Predominantly dry malt features a tasty light nuttiness and treacle toffee. Chocolate cake lusciousness beautifully adorns the staunch foundation of appetizing minerals. Ends with a mineral and dry chocolate blend with shades of cocoa swirled with lingering rustic, yogurty yeastiness. A rare example where rustic idiosyncrasies are so adeptly juggled with a thoroughly fulfilling malty fullness. An intriguing, highly characterful Schwarzbier.

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Swing-top bottle. Sweet chocolate malt and light charcoal aroma. Dark black-brown color with large head. Sweet chocolate malt and light bitter grass/charcoal flavor. Decent body. Very nice.

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.
