Seine charaktervolle Optik: Feurig-brillant und schwarz, mit cremigem Bierschaum. Sein Duft besticht durch die pilstypische Hopfennote, dabei schwingen leichte Kaffee- und Röstaromen mit. Unsere tiefdunkle Pilsvariante ist schlank und frisch im Trunk. Trocken, mit einer spürbaren, feinen Herbe im Nachtrunk. Als weitere Merkmale sind, trotz der Farbe, seine Leichte und Bekömmlichkeit hervorzuheben.
Das Schwarzbier mit einer magisch-mystischen Aura.

An aroma that is a malt with hints of chocolate. The brew is dark brown as light does come through it. It is very smooth with slight bitterness. The overall flavor of malt and chocolate is not well defined.

Aroma is a minor roasted malt but enough to up the rating. Flavor is more of a bland pale lager. It’s kind weird with the color but it has that same grainy, wet paper bag that a regular euro lager has. Maybe a little more body then a pale lager.

Benzai (14267) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Thompson and Niilstrong. Dark brown color with a deep dark red glare coming through when held into the light, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly earthy, decently bitter, some dark malts. Medium body and carbonation. Quite good I’d say. Not an expert on Schwarzbier but I like this one.

superspak (4742) - Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2014
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 10/3/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cocoa, coffee, toast, toffee, brown bread, light nuttiness, raisin, plum, fig, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and solid balance of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and moderate dark fruit notes; with solid strength. A bit too fruity in the nose, but not bad. Taste of cocoa, coffee, toast, toffee, dark bread, light nuttiness, herbal, slight fruitiness, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Slight herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cocoa, coffee, toast, toffee, dark bread, light nuttiness, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Nice and clean flavors with minimal yeast esters present in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very good schwarzbier style. All around good balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
