Beerhunter111 (14807) - Hasborn, GERMANY - APR 11, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelrötliches Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, erdig. Geschmack röstmalzig, sehr leicht schokoladig, Karamell.

gildnerk (195) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2014
Tiefes Braun-Rot mit beiger Schaumkrone. Leichte Aromen von gerösteten Malzen und Kaffee. Körper ist relativ dünn mit einem bittersüßen Antrunk und sauereren Noten beim Abgang mit mittel-hoher Kohlensäure. Etwas metallischer Nachgeschmack. Ich hatte’s besser im Gedächtnis.

ElDesmadre (2990) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Caramel, ground cocoa and grass+earth in the nose. Yep, this one is rather assertively hopped, both in terms of aroma and bitterness. Chocolatey caramel upfront tries to emulate the absent sweetness, going through a light roasted tartness into the hoppy and roasted finish. Bottom fermented dry stout, anyone?

0,5l Flasche. Schwarzbier mit heftiger Schaumkrone. Sehr gut ausgewogenes Bier mit Röstaromen und Nüssen. Nicht süß, aber sehr süffig. Klasse!

GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - NOV 18, 2013
Botella de 330ml. Vaso Lager. Color marrón muy oscuro con tintes ámbar oscuro a contraluz. La es puma es beige claro y crea una capa fina y persistente. Aromas de maltas torrefactas y algo quemadas. Entrada torrefacta y cremosa. Cuerpo ligero-medio y carbonatación suave. Textura densa. Sabores de grano quemado, bajo amargor -debido al torrefacto- y matices herbales en el intermedio. Final reseco. Refrescante y sabrosa. 330ml bottle. Lager glass. Very dark brown in color, very dark amber tints to the light. Foam is light beige & creates a fairly good retention thin head. Roasted & slighty burnt malt aromas. Roasted & creamy upfront. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Dense texture. Burnt grain, low bitterness – due to roastiness- & herbal hints in the middle. Dried finish. Refreshingh & flavorful.

Cantabrian (971) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 10, 2013
Aroma of Karamalz, roasts, ashes and nuts. Very woody, as in the appearance, rather thin dark cooper, with a foamy beige head, full of large bubbles, with both head and body showing a green lumber sheen. Flavours are hard to tell, so weak the beer is. Malty, with a green hoppy bitterness, but nothing to be afraid of. Very light and unpretentious. In the end, it’s nothing like Beyoncee and her "music", who makes me physically sick, but like her, it’s very forgetable.

Es ist wundervoll, nicht ? Normalos schwärmen von einem KÖSTRITZER, während unsereins ein UR-KOSTRITZER für sich entdeckt hat. Erstaunlich erwachsen, erstaunlich süffig, erstaunlich herb und dazu noch süffig. Feine Kaffee- und Röstaromen im Hintergrund - ein wundervoll leichtes und ausbalanciertes Schwarzes. Das Beste seit langem - und üblicherweise ist unser Haushalt eine Nix-Schwarzbier-Zone.
