kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, - NOV 7, 2012
The head is ok, the body black. It smells thin, a bit darkmalty, watery. The taste is watery, a bit malty. It looks good and full bodied, but is the contrary, boring. 10/6/7/6/9/6

Br1mst0ne (9) - GERMANY - APR 27, 2015 does not count
In Short: A great Schwarzbier! The beer smells great. A hint of bread and roasted malt. The colour is very dark with a nice white head. Unfortunately the head only lasts a few seconds. The taste is different from other Schwarzbiers I have had. There is just a little more of the dark malts and a slight hint of hops. For me Schwarzbier is more a cold season beer but this I can drink all summer long.

TaxiDriver (1553) - Stadland, GERMANY - APR 9, 2015
Bottle. The strong smell of malt and some cola, some roasted malt as well. The head is pale brown and fizzy with a normal size and a short duration. The body is nearly black. A malty taste, a soft roasted taste, some cola. The body is rather medium strong, creamy and light oily with a soft carbonation.

ThirstyBird (2013) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2015
Thanks to erzengel for this beer! Pours a dark brown with amber highlights and a tan head. The smell is dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate, a touch of molasses. The taste is roasted malt, bitter chocolate ending dry and a bit bitter. The body is light with average carbonation.

Rasmus40 (12882) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2014

Alengrin (2993) - BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2014
Northern German Schwarzbier with regular, thin but stable, pale beige head and dark bronze colour with burgundy hue, not really black, clear with delicate sparkling. Strong maltiness in the nose, caramel, bitter chocolate, walnuts, liquorice, iron, floral hops. Bit neutral in the beginning, then shifting into a smooth and slick, caramelly and nutty maltiness, bit metallic, ending in a gentle roasted bitterness (black coffee), oily mouthfeel, mild herbal hops in the finish.

Beerhunter111 (9902) - Hasborn, GERMANY - APR 6, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, erdig, leicht süß, schokoladig. Geschmack röstmalzig süß, trocken, leicht schokoladig.

bartlebier (2459) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 33cl bottles Maruhn 12/2013. Pours an almost translucent mahogani, deep red brown. Aroma promises roast, chestnut, chocolate, lakritze - very watery body delivers mere hints of these on the tongue. Pleasant dry palate, but rather silly as a Schwarzbier./Rerate 03/2014: missed the nice natural hop spice first time round. Exquisite, almost paper-drynes, I can see (but not support) why they chose to launch a Cola Radler with this. +0,2

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2013
Bottled. Brown colour with off-white head. A little pale to have the looks of a Schwarzbier. Nose is chocolate, with no reminiscense of toast. Mouthfeel is soft, with notes of chocolate and sweetness. This leans towards a dunkel. Low bitterness, light-medium body.

ruigo (1442) - PORTUGAL - NOV 21, 2013
Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty and roasted. Not too much aroma. Medium carbonation and medium to light body. Flavour is light, watery, malty. Overall, I was not much impressed but I would drink it again.

Erzengel (5078) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2013
Hopfig-frisch und trocken-malzig zugleich! Im Nachgeschmack schön nach Lakritze! Insgesamt aber einen Tick zu wässrig - könnte intensiver sein!
(Test vom 30.1.2008)--> 12,11,12,11,12,11 - 11,30
