What a beautifull colour. What a marvellous sound when pouting to glas. It really invites you for a first drink. What a feeling in mouth - small bubbles are really caress tung and palate. But who on earth added some lemon soda in my schwartzen bier?

Bottle; pours a very dark brown with a beige head; aroma is sweet with sugar, caramel, and a little roasted malt; taste is very sweet, almost overpowering, of sugar with hints of coffee and roasted malt; has a dry bitter finish; would be better if it was not so sweet

rotaman14 (111) - Potsdam, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2014 So this beer was the reason for the "Brandenburg beer war". Dark brown colour, beige head. Weak aroma of bread, some hay, coffee. Very sweet taste, due to the added syrup - hints of candied sugar, some chocolate, not much more. Would have probably been a lot better without the syrup.

Dark brown with yellow a bit creamy rich head. Sweet taste with quite strong carbonation, and smoked meat notes.

Gammalt tyskt munkrecept. Mörkt bröd socker, mörkt sirap, russin å mogna frukter. Ganska bra Schwarzbier inte lika bra som köstritzer i min mening. Lite för söt för min smak men ändå god att njuta av. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ha1ag (733) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2014
Bottled, very dark brown color, firm tan head. Roasted nose. Aroma is sweet, and slightly hoppy. Flavour is somehow out of balance and very sweet with covered hops. Too thin for its sweetness.

Taboada (350) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUL 14, 2014
Tasted from the tap on the Mulheim an de Ruhr Bierborse (12/07/2014). Dark brown colour with a lacing foam head. Aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, banana and malts. Taste has some roasted malts, hops and caramels. Sweet aftertaste with medium carbonation. Balanced body with low alcohol. Next one please!

Moolesen (205) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle 50cl. Black with a beige head (which quickly disappear). It has a nice aroma of some "black" and caramel, but the taste is very sweet. Too much for my taste. If it would have had a bitter finish that would compensate the sweet flavour it could be a quite nice beer, but unfortunate no.

Clear dark brown. Small, light beige head. Aroma is sugary sweet, so is the flavour. Metallic hints of ashtray. Terrible.

vipinvelp (2249) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2014
Black with big light brown/gray lacing foam head. Aroma is bit sweet, some smokey notes. Taste initially sweet again, but slowly turning is some light sweetened coffee, some smoke again. Interesting. Sweet aftertaste again. (Velp 201406)
