COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Well as it says it’s pretty much black with a creamy/bubbly tan topping. Must have been a pretty dirty person leaving this bathwater behind. Fortunately the flavour is not at all of bath water - roasty malts and chocolate although it could be more robust. Enjoyable though - cheers Radek.

Bottle. Beatiful near black color with a glow of ruby brown when held in the light. No discernable head, a few bubble streams rising. Smells of smoky roasted malt with a little breadiness. Roasted malt flavor with a lingering sweetness to counter the bitter roasted flavor. Moderate carbonation and a thin, easy drinking body. Has a slight medicinal quality, maybe brought out with the alcohol. Flavor not unlike a thinner oatmeal stout. Not too smoky, thank God. Pretty tasty as I don’t like my dark beers overly dry and astringent.

Beautiful pour. Looks the way a dark beer should in a glass. Head is a dark tan color and the beer is black and opaque. Smell is kind of on the weak side. Taste is good but lacks any kind of finish whatsoever. Taste went away as soon as it was swallowed.

I think the Green Giant defecated in this one...All I can smell is green peas galore, and I really dislike that vile, mushy green garbage...Roasted malt and smokiness try to redeem the rest of the beer but to no avail...What could have gone wrong to cause such nightmarish emanations??...

Green peas in the aroma (Is that DMS? I've never come across green peas in beer before). Clear, very dark brown with almost non-existant head that dissipates completely. Flavour of smoked green peas with a roasty background. Thin body. Chalky mouthfeel. Quite still as carbonation fizzes off with the head. Bottle (sampled with MartinT, Rastacouere and some non-RB tasters).

Head is initially large, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is black (not opaque). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, coffee, toasted dark bread), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Deliciously balanced and textured, clean, and has a wonderfully attractive malt aroma. Difficult to stop drinking long enough to write a review. Me like Neuzeller.

Semi-sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee. Very palatable, smooth and somewhat dry. Nothing overly special here.

Medium hazelnut brown head, dark brown nearly black. Clay nose with sweet malt - weird though. Sweet malt taste also with some weird undertones. Not that good for Schwarzbeer and an oily texture that makes this a bathbeer I guess.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - JUN 12, 2004
Very malty nose with a slightly foul egg smell, dark dark brown color and foamy head. Syrupy malt with some peat in the middle and a coffee-like finish. Odd aftertaste. Thin body. Not thrilling overall.

Really not a fan of this one. The appearance of this schwarzbier was its highlight, but the flavor and nose were both weak and watery. Obviously not an overbearing style, but this was incredibly underdeveloped.
