Bottle at home - tasting. Dark dark brown - offwhite head. Roasted, red berries, dark bread, ryebread, sweetness, brown sugar. Very nice - a bit too sweet - needs some burned malts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From tap at Vielanker Brauhaus. It’s very dark brown with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of coffee and roasted malt - nice. The flavour has notes of coffee, roasted malt, a slightly dry citrussy bitterness, and the body is full and nice. It’s very porter like and doesn’t have the very pronounced sweetness that many German Schwartzbiers have. It’s one of the really good ones!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nearly black body, small off-white creamy head, mostly diminishing. Light smell of malt and cola, roasted coffee shines through. Medium bitter start, gets even more bitter at the end, lightly sour. Medium body, oily but watery texture, average carbonation, bitter and surprisingly long finish. Good one

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
London Gathering Nov 05: Clear brown with a beige head. Simple choc malts flavours, with a suprising tart edge. Drinkable, but I suspect this bottle was tainted.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at London gathering, November 2005. Thanks to Jacob Lovenlund for thisone and sorry we’ve blitzed the score of a previously highly rated beer. I’m sure it would be good fresh at the brewpub, but there was definitely something dubious about this bottle, even if I didn’t find it quite as hideous as other dis. Dark reddish brown colour. Malty and soft. Definitely sour. Didn’t pick up any rotting meat in the aroma, but I was suffering from a cold.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown colored with a red gleam and a thin off-white head. Roasted malt aroma with creamy notes, rather mild but nicely balanced and pleasant.
Malt and chocolate dominates the flavor, notes of fruit and grass. A bit thin in the body but well balanced. Very fruity for a schwarzbier.

Bottle. I want to try a fresher sample, coz this was sour, and slightly infected. Brown, sugar, sweet caramel, berries mixed in with an strange sourness, lactic sourness. very all over the place.
