Very nice Dark German style beer with clean flavor with wine style hints of fruit and malt. Very good in the bottle and on tap a well.

I quite liked this one’s creaminess. It’s one of my favorite schwarzbiers because it’s light and smooth. It has a hint of sweetness that’s lacking from Asahi Black. Would be better with less carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2005 had this is the bottle. Very malty with some hop presence. Must have not poured it right, as I got almost no head. have to try again. Bartender served it to me ice cold, so i dont think that helped. Pleasant drinking beer though. Rerate 2004 bottle. Awful. Watery, one flavor of light choco-caramel. Weak and boring. Drainpour. This is not a dunkel, or schwarzbier or bock or anything. It’s a crappy, cheaply made brown ale.

Pleasant coffee and caramel…Nice fruitiness and flowers…If you ever come to Quebec and like schwarzbiers, try to find an ‘Escousse’...Much better i.m.o....

Arthur Guinness goes to Kostritz. That is to say, this is the smoothest Schwartzbier, or the most undescribably Teutonic stout, that I have ever had. Quite pleasing.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2008 Bottled:
Deep burgundy colour. Firm and creamy head. Brief toffee and liquorice aroma. Thin, sourish and ashy flavour. Somewhat tart finish.

Creamy dark brew i used to drink on tap at a bar I frequented because of thier limited choices. nice malty finish but could use less carbonation in my opinion
