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.

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.

Bottle: Aroma is coffee and rubbing alcohol. Not the most pleasant combination. Pours a very dark brown, almost black. Decent tan head that is short lasting. Nice lacing. Flavor is a little weak. Not much up front with a roasted nut finsih. Very watery texture. Aftertaste is that of peanuts.

very roasted beer. Pours black as night, with not too giant a head. smells like burnt wood, cracked pepper, and aniseed. It’s like your chewing on deep roasted grain. Good brew. Aftertaste is round and satisfying. I could drink a couple. grat

Aroma is roasted coffee and chocolate. Dark brown, small toffee head. Light flavour of coffee with a chocolate aftertaste. Light bodied, slightly bitter. Very nice! Thanks Radek.

Dark brown in colour. Aroma was malty, some chocolate, slightly roasty and some coffee. Flavour of chocolate malt, roasty, some smoke, toasty with a slight sweetness. Finishes with a mild bitterness but a little light.

Wow was this good...dark, mildly coffeeish, with chocolate malt flavors. It wasn’t overly thick or heavy, making it very drinkable. Something in the aftertaste I couldn’t pinpoint. Friend said it tasted like fish, but I’m not sure that’s it.

Dark roast, you can feel nice depth behind it. Masters job, simple nose, but how was it done. That woody, roasted malt, and iron earthy finish. While you drink you will notice second malt tone, lighter and sweeter. Warm alcohol, pleasant sipper.

Chocolate-brown colour with a tan head. Aroma is roasty and woody. Medium body. Smooth coffee’n’cream flavour with minimal hops. Mild but pleasant.

Thanks to Tim and Radek for this one. Dark chestnut body with a medium sized caramel coloured head. Smells like roasted chocolate and malt. Taste is roasty malt and coffee/chocolate mix. Interesting flavour. I could taste a little alcohol, but it wasn’t too noticable.
