Bottle. Dark chocolate body, big cloudy light beige head. Nose is sour-ish vinegar-like ashy tones with hints of dark chocolate. Weird. Taste is light acidic chocolate with hints of licorice and ashes, which somehow workds really well. Full body, medium carbonation which is more than I had expected. Surprisingly nice for what is essentially a kind of weird schwartz.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Mittelmäßige Schaumkrone. Nicht so süß wie viele andere Schwarzbiere, Lakritzgeschmack der bei diesem aber nicht so dolle schmeckt, bisschen herb. Außerdem geht´s ins süß-säuerliche vor allem im Nachgeschmack. Habe das Gefühl das mir das Bier ein bisschen im Hals stecken bleibt, was wohl am Brauwasser liegt. Fazit: Nicht so toll, knapp unterm Durchschnitt. Test vom 11.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,8,7,7,9,8 - 8,05

Mahognyfärgad, stort smutsvitt skum. Jag letar och jag letar, kupar händerna runt glaset - förgäves. Aromen är så svag att nästan inget uppfattas. Dock örter och kol. Kanske för att jag fick den på fat? Smakar bättre: karamell, jordkällare, lingon. Påminner lite om julmust faktiskt.

BlackHaddock (6012) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2012
Nov 2006 from BA: When I left Berlin in 1990, just after the wall came down, this beer was unheard of. Black beers were not popular in the West, only a few East German breweries kept up the tradition of this style. How pleased and surprised I was to be given this half litre bottle by my wife, after she had revisited the city with some friends. A real dark ruby, almost truely black colour, with a fine light brown foaming head, which sadly disappeared very quickly after my first mouthfull. No great smell, burnt caramel, malt and mushrooms, in that order. Fizzy, full bodied and slightly sweet, I liked it. Aftertaste stays with you longer than the head did, a kind of burnt maltyness lingers in the back of your mouth, which I enjoyed. Very drinkable, I am going back to Berlin, early 2007 and hope to find this on tap somewhere, a second review will be posted if I do.

Very decent for a supermarket schwarzbier. Roasted, a bit watery, with residual sweetness at the end. Bought this at the Hauptbahnhof in Berlin on my way back to A’dam.

On tap at KaDeWe, Berlin. Pours black as the russian caviar in the counter next to me, with a big creamy tanned head. Aroma of sweet caramel. Taste is weak dark caramel, a tad too sweet for my likings. Watery mouthfee.

Rating #702, from tap at Kartoffelkeller at Albertstrasse, Berlin:

A mahoghany brown beer or maybe a bit lighter, clearly filteret and attempts at lacings. I would have rated this 4 in apperance for an altbier (I thought it was an altbier attempt gone wrong), but it is very light for a schwarzbier, and therefore I have to give it 3. Aroma is boring. There is some roasted malts and a hint of bread. Very dry and quite boring flavor with malts, bread, and a good portion of bitter hops in the finish. Somewhat roasted. A bit thin beer with soft and nice carbonation. I wouldn’t buy it again, because it’s so boring.
