As dark as it can be with the barest of russet notes in the dimple of the glass, a filthy grey coloured head that seemed to leave lace on the side of the glass. A little chocolately with some dusty grain on the nose and cocoa and charry burnt fruitbread flavour. Some currant flavour as well. A tasty enough brew and suited to a massive stein on a warm evening. Now. I need me a stein.

On draft at Central Bierhaus. Dark body. Light cocoa aroma. Light roasted malt on the palate. Watery mouth feel. Fairly forgettable.

Grisza77 (437) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 8, 2016
Brunatne piwo o średniej pianie, która utrzymuje się do końca w formie pierścienia przy brzegu szkła. Aromat i smak kawowy. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie dość udany schwarzbier, wyraźna kawa w smaku i aromacie to główne cechy tego piwa.

caramel, bread, chocolate, coffee, grass, herbs, brown, black, clear, minimal head, tan foam, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, bitter Nice malty aromas with dark cocoa/coffee hints. Hops very low key. Medium carbonation with tan foam. A bit thinner then aromas would suggest - I thought it would be fuller bodied, and this feels a bit watered down. Mild bitter finish, again bringing to mind coffee.

visionthing (4357) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2016
50cl bottle at Rakija Bar Kaldrma, Skopje. Pours close to black with a fairly decent, beige head. Malty aroma with bready notes and hints of caramel and roasted notes. Nice change from the domestic pale lagers of Macedonia.

gschrade (969) - Collinsville, USA - FEB 24, 2016
I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste caramel, roasted malt, very mild. I thought this was okay. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Somewhat surprising that the Brewer listed this beer as being fully flavoured. Bland schwarzbier with no head or character.
