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.

50cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. Pours a chestnut or dark honey colour with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has smokey/earthy/malty notes. The taste is smokey like charcoal, running into a burnt sugar note on the end. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a good length. Overall, a good beer that grows on me.

fantti (698) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin colanruskeana ja kirkkaana, vaahdon ollessa runsas, isokuplainen ja likaisen valkoinen. Haju on valtavan hapan, limppuinen, maitoinen ja paahteinen sekä hieman käyneen hedelmäinen. Maku on happaman maitoinen, limppuinen, maltainen, mausteinen ja hennon hedelmäinen. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen ja tasaisen täyttävä. Kokonaisuutena hauskan makuinen olut, josta ei pullon alkuvaiheessa osaa sanoa, mitä mieltä tästä pitäisi olla.

Oakrock (106) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2013
Appearance, sound and foam promise a lot and it does wont let you down. Rich, fresh, acid - slightly citrus, although a bit light. Balanced taste. Perfect friend to summer sauna and smoked sausage.

Forget the Schwarzbier style. Badebier = Bath Beer. Well, I guess this is supposed to be a beer in which you can bathe. There’s no explanation on the label, but I do like the idea of bathing in it. It says it’s “the original”, which pretty much sets the standard, so I have nothing to compare with. If it is medicinal, I do not get much of an elixir or tonic in it. No salts, iodines, sulphurs or minerals. And thanks God there’s no flavours of fish liver oil. It is neither a floral bath. So what do we get? Sweet malts, a bit of roast, honeys, Port, freashly baked bread, muesli, pumpernickel, and a suggestion of plums that have seen a banana at least once in their lives. Chocolate, smoke. Woody, grassy, hayish, but let me be clear: it’s dry wood and dry hay. This is still lacking more fruitiness, which would give it the right flare, the freshness that that could make it a great drinking beer. As for a bathing beer, we must use the wizards’ (Gandalf’s) rationale: this is exactly how it should be. Must be exhilarating.

Dermi (625) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2012
50 cl, bottled. Pours black with a tanned head. Aroma: Grainy malt, syrup. cream. Taste: Sweetish, some roasted bitterness. Syrupy. Palate: Medium body, average carbonation. A bit weird. Decent.

tlind2 (1126) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle. Dark, reddish-brown color, lasting tan head. Roasted malt aroma with some nuts. Taste follows the aroma with some chocolate and a fairly dry finish. Medium-full body, medium-high carbonation. Good pairing for bratwurst and bacon.

RexTalionis (2409) - FINLAND - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Pours cola black in color with a creamy tan head. Roasted malts, sweet dark syrup, fudge in aroma and a very pleasant aroma it is. Roasted malts, light tones of coffee in taste and some toffee. A bit thin, but otherwise quite tasty brew.

Bottle. Dark brown, some head which does not last that long. Quite balanced taste, good.
