rauchbierlover (638) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2012
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, some coffee. Taste is more like cappuccino, some choco, licorice. Start sweet but has a pleasant bitter finish. "Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft" (cit.)

Black and opaque with a dark-brown, medium head (stable). Smells quite complex with notes of chocolate, licorice, biscuit and roasty. Tastes roasty, chocolate-like with a medium bitterness in the end. Quite oily with a full body and an astringend finish.

Nice roasted aroma smells pretty sweet. Pours dark with a creamy head. Whoa! Flavor explosion. More like a dopplebock, no maybe scotch, no maybedouble dunkl, wow I don’t know. Complex, too dark for me, I can’t even finish it but I give it props.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAY 14, 2012
Questa schwarzbier m’è piaciuta un casino. Scura con una buone dose di malto. Si presenta con odori dolci di malto tostato e cioccolato. Al palato più o meno stiamo lì ma con un tocco salino che la rende ancora più bella. Piena e calorosa. Ottima, ottima Schwarz.

lundy (47) - - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle from Coop, also commonly available in Zurich bars. Pours opaque with a creamy light-brown head. Chocolate, molasses, and roasted malt aroma, similar flavor. Taste is lightly bitter chocolate and coffee. Aftertaste also bitter, but very faint. Light to medium body. Alcohol is well-concealed. This is a nice drinkable schwarzbier, but for me it’s too conservative in just about every dimension. A bit more bitterness and body would go a long way.

Dogbrick (11621) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle at Brasserie Fédéral in Zürich. This brew pours black with a thick light brown head recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is very roasty with notes of coffee and malt, along with some hops in the background. Medium body with a strong roasted coffee character and notes of sweet malt, hops and a touch of anise. The finish is brown sugar and coffee. Pretty good all around.

RexTalionis (3522) - FINLAND - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle 33 cl from Drink of the worlds, Basel. Poured cola like in colour with foamy beige head. Coffee and roasted malts in aroma with some hints of dark chocolate as well. Flavour roasted malts and coffee mostly. Not so heavy to drink as one would suspect.
