caesar (6486) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2007
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.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - AUG 18, 2007
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.

asheft (2925) - 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.

crossovert (11015) - 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.

fiulijn (18577) - 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.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - AUG 17, 2011
50 cl bottle from "Il Regno di Gambrinus". Served into an english half pint glass. Pours a clear dark ruby red/brown with an off white non-persistent head. Averace lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, herbs hops, some light chocolate and caramel. Same taste with an herbal and toasted aftertaste. Good carbonation, watery texture. Not my favourite Schwarz but still very refreshing and easy to drink.

Moravius (1063) - Beijing, CHINA - JUN 17, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Tiefes Schwarzbraun, klar; reichlich beigefarbener Schaum. - Nase röstmalzig-würzig und fruchtig (Schwarzkirsche). - Im Antrunk gediegenes Röstmalz, schwarzer Kaffee, Karamelsüße, Schwarzkirschen mit pikant-säuerlicher Note. Mild rezent, weich im Mund. Die Karamelsüße nimmt nicht überhand, da durch trockene Röstaromen austariert. Ausreichend hopfenwürzig-krautiger Hopfen im Abgang. Leicht erdig-röstmalziger Nachtrunk mit trockenem Kakao. - Schönes (wenngleich streckenweise etwas holpriges) Zusammenspiel von malzsüßen, pikant säuerlichen und erdig-bitteren Aromen - ein richtig gutes Schwarzbier. - Laut Etikett mit 5,2 % Alkohol und leider auch mit Hopfenextrakt.
