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.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Interesting to say the least. Nice deep dark black appearance. Pleasant, malty aroma, kind of a smoky tinge to it - usua;lly do not like smokjy flaovr - but does well here. Have to laugh at the label - Bathbeer - Monastery fun - the taste of paradise!

Ok, before we go on to the rating -- the label says 'Bathbeer (then smaller text) Monastery Fun'. Could someone please reassure me that Monastery Fun is somehow wholesome? Great smelling, dark malty. Classy label, bottle and pitchy brew. Good dark roast flavor, vanilla with oaty tones. Drinkable, but not too viscous.

Black beer, malty aroma, coffee, chocolate. Porter/Imperial Stout hybrid. Very good.

I wouldn"t necessarily seek this one out again, but I wouldn"t shy away if I found it again. I would describe myself as mildly enthusiastic for it, much the same way I"m enthusiastic for really well made deviled eggs. Anyway, this one is black, and looks like a schwarzbier, but is richer (approaching porter territory) and really emphasizes the roasty malt flavors. Finishes Smooth. So, has anyone out there tried the ’bath salt’ application of the brew?

This has more characteristics of a good porter than a lager, but it lacks the body of a porter. Strong coffee and chocolate flavors, with a smooth finish. Not bad. Not bad at all.

This is a nice, smooth beer. Lightly flavored of chocolate and creamy. No head retention, but beautiful opaque color. Tastes like beer from a draught can, a little less body than it could have.

Bottle- Very dark color with a quickly disappearing head. Strong flavors of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. A unique beer with an equally unique name and history.

aracauna (3053) - Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2002
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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2002
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.
