Rich, roasty and very full bodied. Neuzeller Porter is brewed in the grand tradition of Eastern European porters.

Bottle. Black with fast disappearing head. Sweet, liqourice, raisins, wine. Low carbonation. Half a litre is more than enough.

Quite powerful schwarzbier. I like this one. It is a good idea to put some extra alcohol in the schwarzbier style.

Very malty nose. Dark brown almost black, dark tan head. Roasty flavor, clean, but a little weak.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Dark black with hints of red, a thin tan head and nicce lacing. Great aroma - chocolate, malt, roast, freshness. Palate starts out very vinous with sweet plum notes then becomes chocolate cherry coffee and burning roastyness and hoppy bitterness. Finish is long and sweeter. This seems to be much stronger than it tastes. Very surprising!

Oh wow... my friend and I thought this was just going to be a cheap filler beer in the night. How wrong we were! Pitch black pour with a thin, lacing head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and smoke. Taste is very bitterly chocolate. Quite a nice surprise!

Pitchblack, little layer, malt licorice taste and also nose. Malt and espressom, roasted coffee beans- long lasting. Nice

This is the only beer from this brewer that I’ve had that is worth drinking. Smells and tastes of chocolate and coffee. Nice blend within a fairly rich malt body. A quick but dry coffee finish, some licorice. The extra alcohol isn’t in the foreground but sets this apart from typical Schwarzbiers.

500 mL bottle: wonderful opaque black ruby body with a dark tan cream…large toasted rye aroma, with wisps of coffee, and lightly burnt hops. Roasted peanut flavours, mix with a distinct herbal quality to offer a unique porter taste. Slightly gritty palate, but smoothes out in the finish…decent, but I really wanted some more fruitiness instead of the sugary sweetness.

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of wet stone. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, creamy/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Wow, good quality evidenced here...looking forward to more traditionally German offerings from this brewery. This is very British in both aroma and flavor profile...like a cask porter, tart and seemingly made to quaff (despite the ABV, which is not at all British). I usually don’t like acid in porters, but somehow the Brit/Irish mineral character, matching bitterness, and rich mouthfeel work out. Very skilled hands made this beer, regardless, that much is crystal clear.
