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.

harrisoni (14238) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle from The Grove Huddersfield. Not expecting this to be super fresh as they were selling it off cheap. Black with dark brown edges and thick dark beige head. Its a decent schwarz not too sweet. Some ok malts. Its fine. Easy drinking and in fact what you could call mild.

MiP (13849) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2009
Bottle, 5.2%. Brown sugar aroma. Almost black colour, seems cloudy. Small tan head. The flavour is sweet and bready, a bit one-dimensional.

TBone (13123) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2012
Bottled 500ml (Alko, BB 12/2012)
Dark brown-ruby color, small steady beige head. Bready, ryiesh with some cardboard and caramel. Medium-bodied. Flavor has cocoa, cardboard, some bread and caramel. Finishing to light bitterness and roasty maltyness. One of the better Neuzeller beers.

Oakes (12854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2001
Almost black; Toasty aroma - slight coffee; palate has dry, husky dark malts....then the problems start showing up. There is too much carbonation, and the body gets thin. As it warms, cardboardy flavours come out. Clearly, this sample has spent too much time in the distribution chain. The flavours are pretty good (like a cappucino & a peanut doughnut), though, so a fresh bottle would be worth drinking. I have ignored the flaws as best as I could in my rating.

argo0 (11736) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 6, 2003
Near black body with gray-brown head. Aroma is coffee, moderately sweet. Taste is sugared coffee, with cream even -- not as oversweetened as the Black Abbot (thank goodness), but still too sweet for my taste.

Christian (11326) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2010
Deep ruby brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma of malt, licorice and a hint of anise. Thin, ashy dark flavour with some hay and grain notes

thewolf (11293) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2006
Almost completely black, but lets in a ruby-red flicker of light. Dense creamy head. Aroma is peppery, roasted and with some caramel. Low to medium carbonated. Taste is filled with caramel and roasted tones. Some smoke is in there as well, and so is a touch of final bitterness.
