COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Caramel malt sweetness and trademark rich, creamy head. A fitting homage to our Grandfather’s apprenticeship at the Duke of Baden’s brewery in Germany’s Black Forest region.

imdownthepub (10460) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2010
Bottled, 355ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Dark brown with cream head. Fruity, bramble aroma going on to quite a sweet caramel beer, still some forest fruit notes but a little cloying and heavy. Malt dominates the close. Just too sweet for me.

Maria (10169) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
Black/brown with a moderate head. The aroma is rather weak with notes of roasted malt. The flavour isn’t as sweet as many shcwartzbiers are, actually it reminds me more of a thin stout. It’s easy to drink, uncomplicated with notes of caramel and a hint of licorice in the slightly bitter finish.
