[Bottle bought in Bamberg.] Nice darkbrown look with off white head. Notes of sweet light roasted malt, straws, bread, caramel and some sticky carbonation. Great beer!

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2008
50 cl at Klosterbrau in Bamberg. Pours black with brownish head. Aroma is roasted. Taste, roasted, malty with notes of caramel, lightly hoppy. Leaves a nice coffee aftertaste. Hard to believe the abv is only of 4.9%

EdKing (1983) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2011
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) - Woodridge, 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.
