GBZ59 (1182) - 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 (903) - 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.

McTapps (4923) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2013
Pours out in a beautiful dark black colour with smooth body and steady head. Nice nose of malt and nuts - very promising. Taste wont dissappoint either since it has nothing to do with any beef broth-taste many other Schwarzbiere are coming with. It tastes of nuts, malt, dark bread, spices, coffee and chocolate. Very gentle and smooth. Delicious one.

vipinvelp (2499) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2013
Clear dark ruby red, almost dark brown, with light brown lacing foam head. Aroma is nice caramel. TAste is intend, caramel with slightly nutty notes. Not too sweet. Perfect for hot dimmer evening. (Neschwitz 201308) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the archives. Had this during Germany beer-trip. Again, good carbonation, pleasant texture, beautiful appearance. Good schwarzbier.

Quality schwarzbier. Nicely balanced with roast, German lager/hop nose and a creamy/dry goodness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jonas (5931) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown with a ruby shine, golden head. Nice roasted aroma, light fruitiness, herbal and grassy hops. Flavor profile is very low key after that - light roasted notes and herbal hops, the aftertaste is nice and dry though.. Medium to light body, sparkly mouthfeel. Pleasant enough and unoffensive.
