tkrjukoff (4022) - SWEDEN - APR 9, 2010
Pours deep black with a generous tanned head leaving a very nice lacing on the glass. Smoked and roasted malts with sweet fruits aroma. Well balanced malty/hoppy/fruity flavor. Round hoppy/malty on the palate with a dry hoppy/malty very nice finish.

Marko (3896) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 8, 2010
Bottle courtesy of and shared with ogivlado (as were the others) who got it in a trade with Allen (thanks both!)
POured a very dark brown-black body with a small off white-tan head. Yoghurty-malty dark malts in the nose, with some raisins as well, remarkably nice. The taste is nicely malty again, raisins and chocolate, sweet, some notes of cappuccino-flavored waffles. Roasty aftertaste. Quite balanced. Not exactly flashy, but still a very tasty schwarzbier!

nearbeer (3629) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2009
33 cl, bb Aug 09. Opaque with a lasting quarter-inch of cream above. Aromas of coffee, char, anise, metal, dry cocoa and light caramel. Well-balanced tastes of charred wood, espresso, bittersweet chocolate, anise, vanilla, caramel, and tart apple. Maybe some hints of oat and lactose as well. Heavy body is slightly watery, smoothly drinkable with light carbonation, and roasty-dry. Thanks to Allen for this one!

McTapps (3627) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Pours out in a very deep black colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of malt and coffee. Surprisingly nice taste of browned butter, malt, vanilla, woods and cake. Hints of brown sugar and light -very light- smoke (something I am allergic to). Nice and buttery finish. Beer got better the more air it got but it still was a little bit average and boring. Solid Schwarzbier though.

MichaelAwesome (3609) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2013
Für ein schwarzbier recht mild und so gar nicht nach Hühnerbrühe schmeckend, doch ansonsten wie ein abgestandenes Export mit dunkler Farbe. Trinkbar und ohne Highlights. Ganz ok.

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.

Bottled. dark brown with a low disappearing pale brown head. Nuts, soap and cocoa in the aroma. Nuts, prunes, chalk and dark chocolate in the flavour. Medium bodied with a bit fizzy mouthfeel. Almonds and cocoa-powder in the aftertaste.

kiwianer (3319) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 6, 2012
The body is black, the head is robust. It smells roasty, creamy, coffee-beans, fruity, a bit caramel. The taste is coffee-beans, a bit sweet, roasty, aromatic. 12/12/12/13/12/12
