COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pitch black in colour, Oxford Nights is a German style schwarzbier that has a light roasted malt character, balanced with noble German hops. A great alternative to a stout or dark ale.

Bottled. Dark brown with small beige head. Chocolate aroma. It has restrained sweetness and a soft, velvetty mouthfeel. Roasty with a pleasant, buttery malt character that accelerates towards the finish. Really well made and with loads of character. A gem!

Don’t mind a schwarzy, espcially when it looks good n the glass with a nice white head. There is the expected brnt aroma and black malt flavour profile coming through as well. Small hop presence but it and the malt provide a fine finish

On tap at the pub. Quite a tasty little number. Plenty of roasted malt flavours and easily drinkable. A good beer well worth the ferry trip.

I liked this a fair bit after dragging myself through the "gold coast" range. Geez. Lots of lingering flavour of fresh dark malts. Nice.

nfob03. i've never seen a schwarzbier with such a creamy head before. plenty of burnt bitterness in there, like a nice version of carlton black

Even though it is a schwarzbier, i reckon it was perhaps a bit more stouty. i.e a bit more roasty and chocolatey. sweetish at the start, but the roastyness balances it out a bit. Actually a pretty tasty little beer in the end, i was quite surprised.
