An ancient style of dark beer brewed in the Brandenburg region of Germany. Sip one while you take a bath, or, like we do in Germany, add it directly to your bath water.

Dark blackish hue, with an elusive foam, burnt toast, roasted malt, dark bitter chocolate, coffee, burnt grains aromas follow through a medium-bodied palate, with dark coffee, roasted coffee grains, hint of cacao saying hello!, within a discreet bitterness finish, coming from his roasted malt. only my nose had the chance to take a bath in this beer.

Pours black with tan head. Nose is smoky and reminds me of peat moss. Flavor is strange. Roasted chocolate malt. Thin body with little mouthfeel. Not a favorite.

One bottle from ’Beers of the world’ as a Christmas present. I do not enjoy beers with notes of coffee or a smokey malt taste.

jimhilt (2540) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Pours with a one-finger tan head that fades to nothing leaving no lace. Almost black. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is roasted coffee. Starts like a mild porter with some roasted coffee at the finish. $3.04 for a 500ml bottle from Oliver’s Beverages Albany, NY.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Flavor = toffee rich malts with a coffee touch. Carbonation is medium while head low. Deep red-black and tanic. If you need a bath, evidently, this is the beer for you. Aroma of sour molasses malts. Light hops.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2004
It took me awhile to guess the style but I finally remembered the word "Schwarzbier." Haven’t had any Schwarzbiers in awhile I guess. Deep red-brown body, thin/medium light cream head. Roasty and rather chocolatey aroma, also very bready. Tart body with chocolate, toast, burnt caramelized sugars, earthy bready tones, and leafy hops. Pretty complex overall and very smooth. Sometimes borders on being a bit too thin-bodied but the malt complexity always comes to the rescue.

jgb9348 (5461) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Dark brown colour with a lighter tan head. Aroma of smoke, roasted malt and bittering characteristics. Medium-light bodied; Bitter coffee flavour with roasted malt showing through. Overall, nice-good to try! I sampled this beer on 15-May-2004 at the May RB Party in Toronto, Onatrio.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2004 Very dark with a small head, aroma of coffee grounds, a little metallic and smoky. Thin mouthfeel, some chocolate, coffee and vanilla notes, sweet, a little scorched like charcoal. Drinkable, but it seemed a bit washed out.

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2004
Pours a nearly opaque black with a thin bubbly head. Sweet burnt malt aroma. Smoked malt taste with a sweetish finish. Light in body. Unimpressive

Tasty beer. Don’t know about following the directions and actually bathing in it, but definitely a decent beer.
