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.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2004
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.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Semi-sweet with hints of chocolate and coffee. Very palatable, smooth and somewhat dry. Nothing overly special here.

YogiBeera (2534) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2004
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 (2622) - 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.

WabashMan (1017) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2004
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.

Pailhead (5397) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2004
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.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2004
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

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2004
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.

radiomgb (2463) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2004
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.
