Bottle brown 500ml
Head goes down very quickly and is off brown. Body, very dark brown. Aroma; roasted malts and alcohol, flavour: very pleasant strong roasted malts, bitterness, raisins, can feel alcohol but it is not disturbing thanks to the mentioned burned grainy character, medium-bodied, very tasty, balanced BITTERNESS and SMOOTH ROASTINESS are going each side by side.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 17, 2007
50 cl bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a dark brown color with a half finger thick light tan head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is toasted malt and esters. Flavor is much of the same. Light to medium body. Thin palate. A decent beer.

Tranquillity (1861) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2006
Slovak version, 0,5l bottle. Quite a good beer. Almost black with a head that disappears completely quite quickly. Aroma of keys in handsweat :) The taste is fulfilling, strong roasted coffee with something bittersweet that I can’t put my tongue on... The bitterness comes out stronger in the finish.

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - APR 25, 2006
En rigtig god Schwarzbeer. Øl købt i Tyskland og er på 5.0 %. Brun med flot lysebrunt skum. Duften er brændt og sød. Smagen er brændt krydret med sød karamelsmag og let bitterhed. Eftersmagen er den samme. Den bedste schwarzbeer jeg hidtil har smagt. Meget let drikkelig - og rigtig god kold.

EithCubes (5619) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2006
Bottled. Mine’s the German version, only 5.0% but with the blonde model on the label. Black pour with a bit of dark ruby shining through under light. Light brown head. Coffee aroma with a little subdued roast sweetness. Burnt toast taste with some sweetness. Long lasting aftertaste, very pleasant. A little one dimensional, but solid.
