Lekkie, sesyjne ciemne (ciemno bordowe) piwo z ładną gęstą pianią. W smaki delikatnie słodkawe z zaznaczoną goryczką. Wysoce pijalne.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This lovely looking beer was poured from the tap at the breweries stall/bar within Berlin’s Green Week on 18th Jan 2014.
Green Week is a showcase of food and drink with many countries and each German State having bars to try their beers etc, etc (plus other stuff): hence I had 28 different beers in one day.
Black as you’d expect this is one of the better Schwarzbier around, it has a good malt presence and although not rich or smooth it does have more body and depth than most I’ve tried. It also made a pleasant change to the light Pilsners I had before and after it.
The aroma and taste give a mild smoky, deep malty and dark fruit character to the brew: worth finding.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy dark brown with airy but stable beige head. Clear aroma of roast, malt and caramel. Bitter, roasty and hoppy flavour, with rough, grainy and malty notes. Sourish and bitter aftertaste with a hint of meral, without which the beer would be much better. Creamy mouthfeel. Undemanding but quite uninspiring, too.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml. bottle picked up from a night shop in Cologne. Consumed at home. BBF 02/2014. Ruby dark wood brown, little, quickly vanishing mocha head. Nose is weird, coffee grounds but watery with soy sauce, something spoiled, plenty of lager yeast, something off & herbal, some of that metallic lager feel. Taste is better for sure than the slightly off-putting, coffee ground, bitter taste of one of those herbal coffee imitation things, some metals, touch syrup, metallic water quality, lager yeast, herbal & Chinese remedies notes. Light, typical dark lager feel body. I expected something lovelier when I picked this one up. Even if not top, it was not bad drinking this one, I was trying to avoid the worst, placing my bets on a Schwarzbier; a style of which I am still more than interesting in trying more from. In the end I wound up quite enjoying this one even if I expected a touch more.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.5l bottle bought in Dresden. Dark brown body, a bir short of schwarz. Starts with medium head, no aroma, no taste, maybe a bit sour. Maybe a bit of roasted aromas. Head vanishes quickly. Sweety, roasted taste, like cola or coffee. A bit more carbonation than ideal. Kind of unpleasant. Possibly the worst piece of my takings from Dresden.

07.02.2013. 0,5l Bottle. Black colour with off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of burnt and roasted malts. Rather thin body. Short aftertaste with medium bitterness and rather short tasteless finish.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Da ist sie wieder, die Hühnerbrühe. Zumindest ist dies das domierende Aroma. Hopfen und Malz ? Sicherlich sind sie da - aber nicht zu schmecken. Schlecht bleibt das Steiger zwar nicht, aber dennoch unterdurchschnittlich. Und somit keines High Scores wert.

Bottle with my kebab in Dresden. Pours Dark Reddy Brown with a thick tan head. There’s a touch of coffee to the flavour with some doughy sweetness. Light bitterness to finish. Pretty good.
