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.

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.

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.

Dark brown w/ creamy brown head. Roasty aroma of coffee beans & nuts. Medium, carbonated feel. Roasted coffee & cream flavour w/ a hint of nuts & a light fruitiness.

Not as much of a mouthfull as it’s name unfortunately. Dark black body with a nice beige head. Bit of roasty smokiness, in a light-meidum body. Not bad per se but it was not pushing the right buttons for me today.

Excellent head on a black,almost opaque beer. Malty chocolate aroma. More of the same on the taste buds. Bitterness to balance the malt, but not to be prominent. Lager yeast make for a very smooth beer. Some roast that at times smokey or little burnt. Deceivingly light body for such a dark beer. You would expect the body of a stout, or at least a bock, yet it has the body of a pilsner (which is appropriate for the style). I drank mine, I didn’t put it in the tub.
