Near black with rich beige head. Coffee aroma. Dry and a bit roasty, although perhaps not as malty as I would like. Medium bitterness. A decent example of the style.

Draught from the Alte Kantine in Berlin’s Kulturbrauerei. Somewhat subdued notes, even for a Schwarz, very quaffable. Lightly roasted, a touch of chocolate, light and smooth. Would like to re-rate from the bottle.

Faint roasted malt aroma. Opaque body. Large, light-brown head; mostly lasting. Good lace. Very light flavor for a dark beer. Has that non-pasteurized, yummy German draft beer finish. A little too light in body, but worth a quaff.

6/19/03, draft, Berlin. I've noticed that everything is better in an enjoyable context - in this case a wonderful German restaurant with good company. Dark brown lager, almost opaque with large white head. Aroma is heavily toasted malts, caramel, apple, oranges and balancing hops. Roasted sweet malt flavor with honey, smoke and citrus. Medium body and creamy in the mouth.
