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. Stammwürzegehalt: 18 % Alkoholgehalt: 7,2 %

Black,. yellow brown foam that lasts. Sour aroma with a hint of burned malt. Thick with low carbon. Malty taste with a little fruit. Strong aftertaste, coffee and chocolate that lasts somewhat. Not a typical scwarzbier and not well balanced.

mansquito (3679) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Associated Supermarket (Cityfresh), Bushwick Brooklyn ($5): Pours near black with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, some roast, and a bit of fruitiness. Taste is chocolatey, and a bit sweet at the front, with low amounts of bitterness. The finish is a sort of dull fruitiness, bordering on soapiness. That said, it is not bad. It is relatively well balanced and certainly a departure from your average German beer.

CapFlu (4651) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 16, 2015
Foamy beige head atop a deep brown body. Nose of coffee and milk. Slightly lactic, coffee malt and minor vanilla. Decent. Purchased at Metro Liquors University Heights for $4.25.

PapaSkeetSkeet (925) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Chocolate brown with light-brown coarse head that fades to a spotted film. Aroma is medium-roast coffee, moss, hint of soap, bark, hint of corn and butter, Body is light, slightly oily, medium-soft carbonation, large bubble texture, moderate burn. Flavor is light chocolate with bit of raw sugar, bit of toast, and a touch of mineral, hint of soap. Herbal grass. A decent schwartzbeer, I’m not a fan of the slight soapy flavor/aroma. Not really a baltic porter: needs more caramel malt for that.

Bottled@CPH BF 2013. Thanks to Timo A. who warmly has recommended this over the years on various festivals, where this has been around. Finally did it, and do not need to regret it! Pours very close to black, with a small beigeish brown head. Aroma is nicely ashy and roasted, but at the same time nicely nutty, sweet caramel malty and also some ripe fruits and a bit of alcohol to it. Flavour is consists of the same and gives a very nice body to it. Kick ass.

500 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a small beige head. A big sweet fruity nose. Light chocolate, sugary sweet malts, raisin. The overall beer is great big malty fruity bases with light smoke.

bhensonb (11681) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle from Star Grocery in Berkeley, CA. Pours dark brown with a foamy beige/tan head. Aroma seems salty, dark malt? Or how about a bit of Welches’ grape juice? Whatever, it’s nice. Med body or so. Flavor? Salty Welches’ grape juice? Seriously, it seems New York grape. It also seems malty. So it’s fruity and malty. I’m liking it.

I’ve had this on draught and in the bottle. Both have a silky smooth body, mellow roast note (not acrid), and a gentle cocoa note in the middle to finish. Such an easy beer to drink. Its got more body and flavor than most Schwartzbiers I’ve had, but not as bold as your average Baltic Porter. Kind of a punchier Schwartzbier or softer Baltic Porter.

rotaman14 (196) - Potsdam, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2014 Dark brown colour, medium brown head. Coffee, nuts on the nose. Sweet taste of malts, with a medium bitterness. Long finish, with a hint of roasted coffee. Overall tasty and enjoyable.

Thanks to Julia Dubowy for the bottle --- Opaque dark brown color with a good 1/2" tan head, full cover of cobweb lace. Taste is solid caramel malt that grows a little in the palate, without any additions, then turning to a finish that has very little hops, which this style doesn’t actually require anyway. An appealing malty brew, excellent for an autumn evening in front of the first fire. Recommended.

TEJA (1399) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from Gassen Krug in Schwerin. Lasting brown head. Totally black color beer. Caramell and a tuch of fresh tobacco in the aroma. Sweet malty taste with a long lasting medium bitterness. Very much cara taste. Big body and some fruitiness. Not a Schwartzbier but a fine night cap.
