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 (9799) - 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

500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
7 Super rich, slightly chocolatey, roasty aroma.
5- Very dark red, just some ruby glints through it, lovely tight, fairly persistent, thick tan head.
7- Solid roasty body, slightly milky and again chocolatey. Hint of real burntness too. Very pleasant, even though it’s not a very complex.
4 Smooth palate, full-feeling and succulent in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Finish is mostly the richly roasted grains. Some slight bitterness from burntness and hops accompany that.
13 Pretty solid schwartz, fortunately less sweet that many others we’ve had. Good one.

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......

Dark chocolate color in the glass. Tastes like unsweetened chocolate. Very delicious. Rated 8/29/02

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.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2005
(bottle) Dark brown to opaque colour with a medium foamy almost brown head with nice lace. Roastmalty aroma and a clear nose of caramel. Soft moderately sweet start with a malty taste and a note of coffee with a well-balanced malty hoppy dry finish with only light bitterness. A enjoyable Schwarzbier which could have a little more body.

Rune (8493) - 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).

Poured a dark brown with a thin brown head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and hops.

I think the Green Giant defecated in this one...All I can smell is green peas galore, and I really dislike that vile, mushy green garbage...Roasted malt and smokiness try to redeem the rest of the beer but to no avail...What could have gone wrong to cause such nightmarish emanations??...
