The full-flavoured beer with a fine and malty taste.

Un plaisir noir avec une marque grillée.

Beerenberger (1564) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Aroma is fruit forward. A dark brown pour with a mostly diminishing tan head and slight lacing. A biscuity malty taste with a biscuity aftertaste. Medium to medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry, chalky feel. Overall, I liked this beer. While not a go to beer, I'd drink it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (2903) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Very dark mahogany color with a frothy/creamy head. The head is very long-lasting and leaves exceptional lacing. The body is medium and near creamy smooth, with excellent carbonation. No flaws in the aroma or taste, but the flavor is a bit weaker than ideal.

nuplastikk (5033) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 31, 2012
12oz bottle. Unfiltered looking brown-black. Steady beige head. Clean, mellow brown chocolate aroma. A pretty respectable Schwarzbier. Gentle on the palate, that slightly lower than normal ABV makes it quite mellow. Smooth sweet caramel, brown chocolate, brownie. Some delicate hops. Quite enjoyable for the style.

rodenbach99 (3515) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2012
Bouteille de 330ml. Bière de couleur noisette brune avec une mousse beige. Le nez est discret, malt pils, malt chocolat avec une touche chocolatée. La bouche est piquante, mordante il y a une touche de chocolat. Me fait plus penser à une müchener qu’à une schwarzbier. 6/10

bhensonb (12308) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours very dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is a bit nutty with lots of dark roast malt. Near med body. Flavor is slightly sweet roast malt with a little oily nut aspect. Makes me think of cola somewhat. Drinks well.

500ml bottle served just below room temprature in a shaker. Deep dark brown with a thick off white head.Weak cough drop aroma. A bit of treacle toffee, & coffee in the flavour. Medium bodied and sweet. I got bored halfway.
