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.

Bov (10485) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 30, 2008
pours a very dark brown colour with an elusive foam; aroma of caramel with strange vegetal notes; sweet and light-bodied with a solid carbonation; no bitterness and a short and quite watery caramelish aftertaste

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 9, 2007
Deep dark brown colour with a nice foamy head. Aroma of smoked malt and some chocolate. Flavour of well roasted malts, chocolate, nice smokiness and caramel. Roasty bitter finish. A tasty schwarzbier brewed according to an old monk recipe.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2007
This black/brown elixir bade bier has a moderate head and an aroma with notes of malt and herbs. The flavour is a bit like their "Anti Aging Beer", less sweet perhaps, and strong notes of malt (wheat among others), and notes of berries and licorice. It’s a quite OK schwartzbier.

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2002
I liked this better than the Blackened Voodoo Schwarzbier because it was not as overly carbonated. Black color and decent head/lacing. I can’t see dropping $3.50 to add this to my bathwater though. Usually you take a bath to get rid of the beer smell, not vice versa. Fairly sweet malty maple flavor with coffee notes. I’d have this one again.

Rune (9340) - 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).

pivnizub (9300) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2005
Bottle: Virtually almost as black as coal, quickly vanishing espresso-like foam; shy liquorice nose with some traces of alcohol and a tinge of fruitiness; malty flavour, leading to a dry, liquorice ending, low carbonation; not unpleasant, but quite "dead"; a quality , which seeems to typical for the Neuzelle brews......

crossovert (9190) - Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Like most from this brewery it is almost like an extract brew. It has some nice roasted notes but is otherwise un-memorable.
