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.

EithCubes (5485) - 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.

edpeg (890) - 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.

TET (2553) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2012
A colablack beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma is (rye)bready and slightly sour, roastiness, some syrup and hint of grass. Taste is bready, some roastiness, ryebread. Medium- bodied, mild carbonation, slightly biting and too light to drink. Unsurprising, still quite nice Schwarz.

Rune (10928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2012
500ml bottle by the courtesy of Finn. Clear rosewood coloured body. Rocky, dense, beige head that recedes slowly, leaving fragile lacing behind. Burnt dark malts to the nose, notes of cardboard. Mild smoked malts in flavour alongside dark bread, mid-sweet, on a backbone of roasted bitterness. Rather thin on the swallow and easy to drink. Not bad at all (Tromsø, 24.02.2012).

Finn (6197) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2012
Flaske 0,5l fra Alko Muonio. Dyp amber på farge. OK luftig, litt farget skum som fester seg litt til glasset - og varer en stund. God aroma av røyk og røstet malt. Smaken er syrlig karamell. Balansert. Avslutter bittert & litt syrlig.

The aroma is very promising. Almost porter-like. The bier has a long lasting, thin foam. Tha taste is little waterish to my taste. Not bad.
