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 dark beer. Big bubbled tan head quickly dissipates to almost nothing. Big roasty sweet aroma. Falvor is toffee, burnt malt and a hint of smoke. Some raisins flavor starts to show up as it warms. There’s that lager taste to it, but it’s almost completely covered up by the strong malty flavors. Hops are very low in the profile.

Dark chestnut color with A tan thinnish head. Aroma straight out of a malt house - Musty, grainy, dusty malt. Fairly thin but thickens as it warms. For the aroma the beer is quite mild flavored. Almost an iced mild coffee with a touch of cream. Rather enjoyable change of pace.

Most reviewers have really panned this ’beer for bathing’, but it seemed true to the schwarzbier style and was rather enjoyable. Though I did not bathe with it, I enjoyed its roasty, coffeeish flavor. It was thin enough, that I didn’t feel like I’d just eaten a whole meal, like you do after a stout. Better than expected.

dark brown with rouge filigree and tan foam. the label’s leering monk, in addition to the subtext: ’monastery fun’ and the tips on bathing make these jolly kloistered fellows a little suspect. alterboys beware. i chose to consume the beverage in lieu of dumping it in the bath as reccommended, and i believe sanity supports my choice. the nose says ’schwarzbier’, however, MY nose said ’porter’, and so then the two noses got into an argument about top and bottom fermenting yeasts, and my nose ended up pouting and leaving. malt toasted dark but not burnt, just moderately sweet with some raisin and cola. smooth once it’s room temp. very nice.

Nice story, and the uniqueness is appreciated, but this wasn’t the best. Great appearance, appreciable smokiness.

Pretty good - but nothing spectacular. Slight coffee aftertaste. I will pass on adding it to my bath water as well. Maybe I can see bathing in champagne - but not beer!

I liked this better than the Blackened Voodoo Schwarzbier because it was not as overly carbonated. Black color and decent head/lacing. I can’t see dropping $3.50 to add this to my bathwater though. Usually you take a bath to get rid of the beer smell, not vice versa. Fairly sweet malty maple flavor with coffee notes. I’d have this one again.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2002
Very deep garnet in color, light chocolate head that dissipates quickly, leaving a fair lace to coat the glass. Nose malt, caramel, lightly toasted grains, front is sweet, the top light, the finish is dry, moderately carbonated, somewhat acidic, little hops to speak of. Improves a bit after resting, but all in all just an average beer.

very dark opaque black schwarz. lght brown heavily carbonated head. aroma of an imperial stout hasa port wine and sherry flavor and an odd combination of being either too sweet or too bitter. fizzy carnonation detracts from palate.

Took forever too pour as the head kept piling up on me. Nice black color but lacked the body I would expect from the appearance. Too much carbonation which never really seems to settle down.Cloying bitterness. It’s a good thing this beer has an alternative use since I won’t be drinking it again.
