500ml bottle. Clear dark brown with huge, firm, frothy, beige head. Decent herbal, grassy hop aroma, some dark malty undertones. Taste is minimally tart dark malty, other notes like grain and chocolate remain in statu nascendi, minimally herbal, almost soapy hop finish.

kappldav123 (5714) - GERMANY - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Starts intense malty, modest roasty, some fruity hints. More and more malty-earthy, some dry notes. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable. Good schwarzbier!

0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark reddish brown. Sweet bready aroma with toffee and dark bread crust. Sweetish taste of dark bread with raisins and toffee. Not bad, lots of dark bread.

larsga (6943) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2012
Big beige head. Clear deep brownish red body with carbonation. Roasty earthy strawy aroma with milky chocolatey smoky notes. Dry-sweetish earthy roasty taste with milky peppery notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish roasty sugary metallic aftertaste with strawy peppery. Nice, drinkable, some off flavours. (0.5l bottle, Alko Arkadia, Helsinki.)

EithCubes (5373) - New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2012
Bottle by 01.11.12, for drinking, I guess, no word on the bathing expiry. Sweet grainy nose, very light roast and nuts and the sweetness seems a little artificial. A beautiful dark brown in the glass with a large, tan, rocky foam mattress of a head. Sweet taste turning semi-dry, with ash, light chocolate and coffee, maybe some caramel-butterscotch. Rye and caraway in the aftertaste. Smooth medium-light body. Really not that bad, but like most from Neuzeller, gets old after a few ounces. Did add the majority to a hot bath. The verdict? I don’t think I’ve bathed in bathwater of that color brown before, the referent is a classic ‘morning after pee’, a dark yellow in which you can see various greens and browns.

Beerhammaren (1503) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2012

edpeg (880) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2012
0,5l bottle. Pours almost black with reddish glimpse. Beige frothy head with good lacing and dense bubbles. Aromas are caramel, little roastiness, malty and some plums. Palate is medium bodied, watery with smooth soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Taste is roasted malts, caramel and stout like dryness. Aftertaste is fruity, lively with medium long dry finish.A refreshing beer with nice stout/porter like bitter dryness, yet palate is thinner and floral. Nice one.
