Schwarzer Kristall pours a dark brown. It’s almost black and the foam is tall and brownish. The aroma has a sweetness of chocolate and roasted malt. The taste is bitter like coffee (not hops) and there is a bit of tartness that takes you by surprise. This smooth brew goes down easy and leaves a bitterness on the finish. Great schwarzbier for my tastes!

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2010
Mostly dark brown/black. Roasty chocolate, maybe even a hint of dark fruit on the nose. Smooth, soft. Nice dark sugars, with light chocolate accents. Good schwarzbier - soft and sweet.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Bottle @ Beerfest Asia Singapore. Thick black (goes glug glug when poured) with lasting tan head. Inky aroma with iodine and major black molasses. Creamy soft and luscious yet remarkably drinkable and not too potent. Has notes of coffee and chocolate. The interplay between sweet and dry is gorgeous. Well made.

ogivlado (5402) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 16, 2010
Bottled 330ml. -Trade with Allen (thanks Julian!). Pitch black coloured, medium sized brown head, malty chocolate nose. Roasted malt, chocolate and prunes and other dried fruits but a bit too sweet. Second Appenzeller beer in last several weeks, and this one is few light years better than Quöllfrisch Hell.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2010
Black colored with medium sized beige head. Roasted caramelly aroma with some vanilla note. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is smooth with roasted, even stoutish creaminess. Aftertaste is stouty as well with vanilla and some dryness.
