Deep black body with a nice and persistent beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, some coffee. Taste is dark coffee, chocolate, slightly caramel. A bit dry. Low bodied, but very pleasant mouthfeel. Nice one!

Bottle from a wooden Rewe multipack. Deep brown, creamy beige head. Full of roasted malts, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee... Not too dry, however, the sweetness is subtle yet present and pleasant. Shy hops and a tiny touch of smoke in the lingering finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Alla spina. Color nero lucido con un pannoso velo di schiuma beige. Aroma e gusto offrono una delicata combinazione di malto, cacao, fondi di caffè, cereali, nocciole, fumo e caramello; di corpo lieve e piacevolmente frizzantina, un po’ povera nel finale ma cremosa nella struttura. Una buona schwarze senza dubbio.

Serveret i 500 ml flaske på Fränkischer Hof, Rehau im biergarten. God fylde og fin rund smag. Eftersmagen er relativ kort. Men en generelt rigtig god schwarz bier.

this is a true classic, with its utterly delicious, mild, YooHoo-like coco accentuated maltiness. smooth and gentle, yet rich and fulfilling. no harshness -- just pure northern bavarian mellow dark malt brilliance.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Mahogany body with a tall head. Roasty aroma with coffee characteristics. Taste has some roast but is thin. Starts great but turns a bit watery by the finish. Quite good but not my "dream" beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Haus Wertheim. Dark reddish brown with a light tan head. Aroma of dark toasty bread, cocoa, coffee and light smoke. Flavor is rich and malty with hints of cocoa and coffee, balancing hop bitterness and light smoke in the finish. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Excellent beer, kind of between a Dunkel and a Schwartz with a bit of smoke.

500ml bottle. Deep dark copper color. Tiny off-white head, somewhat says. Roasted malts, raisins, plums, woody notes in aroma. Roasted malts, grainy, fruity flavor. Crisp mouthfeel. Burnt sugar, roasty aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2013 Dark brown, almost black with 2 fingers of tanned head.
Aroma is of cocoa, cafe and a ton of roasted malts. Liquor, more roasted malts, dark chocolate and some bitternes in mouth.
With little bit more of body and softer carbonation it could be a really good beer. Anyways still the best Schwarz that I ever drunk.
Some days later, I drunk one more and it was contaminated. Strange for a German Brewery. Schade.

Bottle. This is a great brew with lots of nice roast flavor on a very light chasis.
