3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark ruby color, big cloudy off-white head. First there is mould and wood in the aroma, when beer warms up - tar and smoke. Woody, barrel-like mouldy flavors, toasted malts, tar, smoke, light milk chocolate. Hops rise in the aftertaste. Personal and excellent smokey Schwarzbier and currently clearly underrated in RB (with score 3.36).

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.

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.

Clear dark brown color, medium off-white head. Aroma of some coffee, licorice, roasted malt, hint of smoke. Taste is a bit weaker, roasted malt, bit sweet. Very promising aroma, but taste doesn’t match with the expectations.

Bottled (5,2% ABV). A black beer with a very big and persistent light brown head. Malty nose with a roasty touch. The flavour is malty, roasty with some coffee notes and light hoppy notes. Quite rich. Medium body, average carbonation, moderately bitter aftertaste. Near stouty. Nice stuff and another good Bamberger beer.

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.
