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.

Pours dark brown with muddy brown big head. Aroma is raisin, fruits, sour notes, dark bread, silage, plums, some soap. Taste is metallic, bread, plums, some salt, watery, some grapes, dried fruits. Nice aroma, but taste is little bit light.

Tumma simamainen aromi ja väri. Maku raikas, hapokas, luumuinen, hiivainen, makeahko. Kokonaisuutena ihan jeppiskamaa.

Why doesn’t this have a higher rating, I wonder? Beautifully dark red like Coca-Cola, a tall and lacy beige head that doesn’t last too long, and a faint nose of malt, iced coffee, pumpernickel and olive oil. The body is exceptionally smooth, a bit oily, a bit creamy, like goat’s milk hand soap. Then, that flavour of iced coffee, a whiff of chocolate and cola, some prune. Slightly bitter finish with zero astringency. A bit thin, perhaps flat, but it adds to the guzzlability factor. I enjoyed this beer greatly.

Pretty good - but nothing spectacular. Slight coffee aftertaste. I will pass on adding it to my bath water as well. Maybe I can see bathing in champagne - but not beer!

Nutty almost port like flavor, but very weak flavor despite good aroma. Take a decent beer, add water. Then add more water and that is what this beer represents.

Bottle- Very dark color with a quickly disappearing head. Strong flavors of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. A unique beer with an equally unique name and history.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Near black color, red tints, with a medium off-white head and long lacing. Fruity aroma, roasted plums and cherry juice, wads of tobacco as well. Sweet and roasty flavor at first, medium body, gives way to a sticky finish not unlike grape juice. A decent and at times tasty beer.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Deep reddish brown, small brown head dissipates in about a minute. Smells roasty with sweet malt and stewed fruits. Cola and chocolate in the forefront, followed by grainy flavors, roasted nuts, coffee, an unappealing lactic sweetness, and ending on a buttery note (diacetyl?). Finishes with dark chocolate, fruit, almond, and a touch of copper. Altogether a pretty one-dimensional and average dark beer, okay but not memorable.

Well as it says it’s pretty much black with a creamy/bubbly tan topping. Must have been a pretty dirty person leaving this bathwater behind. Fortunately the flavour is not at all of bath water - roasty malts and chocolate although it could be more robust. Enjoyable though - cheers Radek.

Aivan miellyttävä lipitys. Portterin hassuja haisuja. Takapotkua uupuu. Alkutahdit hyvät.
