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.

RexTalionis (3436) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (5951) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 1, 2012
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 (5816) - 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!

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2012
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 (7117) - 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 (5437) - 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.
