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.

Ernest (6187) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2011 Rated at Klosterbrau Nov 2011. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted/burnt grain, bitter chocolate), with notes of molasses, minerals, milk, black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Odd collection of aromas, but ultimately enjoyable. Decent balance.

JorisPPattyn (7879) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2005
Draught Black beer with some red highlights, dark coloured head, not very stable. Liquorice, jap nose, sweet, but not disturbingly so. Dry black grains taste, a bit of liquorice, but virtually no sweetness. A bit of carbonised flavour. A bit light and watery in MF, but no cloying or unrefined slickness. A real Bamberg speciality, well worh looking for.

Draught (at Klosterbrau): Very dark black with a light brown large head. Sweetish choc, nice clean malts. A little thin but refreshing and tasty.

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2009
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear brown colour with a mid-sized head. Not as black as expected from a Schwarzbier. Malty with hints of caramel and strongly roasted dark malts, hints of coffee and chocolate. Well-balanced Dunkel.
