50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden dark orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is breadish and dry malty. Light metallic, roasted and vague sweet malt flavoured. Bitter and roasted finish. Nice one.

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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear, deeper brown colored body with a slight mahogany hue. Inch thick, dense and frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is medium sweet malts with a touch of molasses, a light roast note, some raisin bread, and a light noble hopping. Flavor is similar. A light roast throughout with a bit of an noble hop note, some lightly sweetened malts with molasses hints, roast, bread, and a touch of spice. Finishes clean and dry with a light roasty bitterness and a bit of a sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and an active carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid schwarzbier. Clean, easy drinking, and flavorful. A touch sweet at times, but nicely balanced by the roasts and light hopping. Good one.

Marheb (3534) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
(Bue sur place): Une belle robe sombre laisse passer la lumière. Chocolat noir, caramel et mélasse se mélangent et se laissent compléter par une touche herbacée, poivrée.
