Schwarzbier - keine Angst! Die Kyritzer sind ein rauhes aber liebenswürdiges Völkchen. Dieser rauflustige Name steht für ein Schwarzbier, das in Kyritz schon im 17. Jh. gebraut wurde und die Stadt Kyritz bis nach Hamburg, Lübeck und am kurfürstlichen Hof bekannt machte. Die Stadt Kyritz übertrug der Klosterbrauerei Neuzelle die Produktion und den Vertrieb des historischen dunklen Bieres des Mittelalters, wodurch nun auch ein Stück Kyritzer Geschichte in Neuzelle einkehrt.

motelpogo (6130) - Plzen, - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle, picked up at rewe in steglitz. Looks just like a dubbel, a rich shade of very dark brown ith a thin beige head; curious aroma of walnut skin, sour cherry and almond; loads of flavour - burning rubber, olive brine, sherbet, brown sugar, melt-in-the-mouth texture. Original and quite sophisticated

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Ashy, earthy chocolate malt. Blackish brown and still. Sweet chocolate cake flavor, hints of vanilla and dark fruits. Mostly slick but a little crispy. Flavors and weight of porter, aroma and body feel of schwarz. Pretty good stuff.

ContemplateBeer (1432) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Aroma: Roasty malts, which give off a powdery cocoa, light coffee vibe. A little earthy/herbal with the hops, which are light overall. Appearance: Garnet black, inky pour with a bubbly mocha head that dissipates almost completely. Flavor: Matches the nose; pretty dried out all around; hops are more earthy, almost woody. Palate: Light body, oily-ish texture, very soft carbonation, bitter finish. A little hot. Overall: An above-average Schwarz.

nuplastikk (4126) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2014
500ml bottle. Deep and rich, I can see why this could be placed under the Baltic Porter category,even though it explicitly states that it is a Scwarrzbier on the label. Big, doughy brown chocolate, luscious and rich, smooth and clean. Sugary and sweet, but fits the style well here. Easy on the palate still, has that cloudy, doughy lightness. Excellent beer, a Schwarz/Baltic Porter hybrid.

Bamsen78 (2412) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Dark aroma of coffee, chocolate, malt, and caramel. Bitter. roasty flavour, with notes of coffee, giving way to sweetish touches of malt, chocolate and liquorice. Mildly bitter and roasty finish. Rather hogh carbonation. I don’t quite know what it is. The label says Schwarzbier, Ratebeer says Baltic Porter, I think it tastes like something in between these two. It’s good, though. I hope it doesn’t kill me :-)

Rustun (1) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2014 does not count
Great bubbles and mouth feel. The burnt chocolate and coffee flavors are over bearing though.
