Watzdorfer Schwarzbier is a composition of carameled and roasted barley malt, consequently brewed without often used colorsirup. This sparkling beer with an accenting caramel note is best for social get togethers after "the big thirst" is quenched.

WillemsUrenkel (1328) - Oldenburg, - NOV 8, 2013
0,33 l bottle, thanks to kappldav123. Pours nearly black, tanned head. More spicy and pepper than malt on the nose. Starts rostmalty, dark coffie, light sweetness, little bit metallic. Mid sourness and grainy, gets a little bit thinner in the second stage. But a good one with his own character.

anstei (940) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle, thanks to Koelschtrinker’s EuroSanta gift. A pretty average and rather boring Schwarz, but it’s not bad. Some liquorice, some caramel, otherwise simply quaffable.

Bamsen78 (4810) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy very dark copper brown with airy but stable tan head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with touches of caramel and bread. Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of caramel malt and touches of yeast, hops and metal. Bitterish aftertaste. Watery. Drinkable but nothing special.

Erzengel (7296) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2015
Mildes, nicht zu tiefes, nett lakritziges Bier. Sehr weich, kaum tief, sehr süffig-würzig. Kaum Herbe, nettes, irgendwie entbittertes Röstmalz mit netter Lakritze. Flach, es fehlt die Herbe. Schade.

MichaelAwesome (6297) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2014
Laffes Schwarzes ohne richtigen Willen. Etwas Kaffee und eine ordentliche Portion Wässrigkeit. Karamell ? Nicht wirklich. Derb und lahm.

McTapps (6352) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and grains. Taste of malt, spices, broth, woods and barley. Grainy finish. Drinkable yet not that nice.
