Bottled, 500ml at Alter Kranen, Wurzburg, Bavaria. Black(ish) with cream head. This was surprisingly light on the palate, fairly thin and watery, not sure why. There is a dusty note to the roasted malts, carbonation again, some caramel then fruitiness. It’s ok.

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2014
Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-malzig, leicht röstmalzig-herb, vor allem zum Mittelteil werdend. Insgesamt aber eher etwas flacher. Die Röstmalztöne bleiben doch etwas im Hintergrund, auch die herbe Note könnte ausgeprägter sein. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine leicht-malzig-röstmalzige Note.
--> Netter Versuch, aber für ein gutes Schwarzbier viel zu flach. Die Aromenkomposition gefällt mir – müsste aber um einiges intensiver sein!
Test vom 18.7.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,8,10,8,12,9 - 9,30

Thanks for the gift Lajos! While I really enjoyed drinking this, it was much lighter and milder than I had anticipated (expected Kostritzer). Nevertheless it was tasty. Sweet and maybe even a hint of chocolate. Too light on alcohol in the end for me.

0.5l bottle. Dark ruby body, light brown head. Aroma of caramel and some sweet dried fruits. Taste of caramel, minimal roastyness and some red berries. One of the sweeter schwarzbiers.

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2013
bottle, delivered by pivnizub! Deep brown, almost black, with a creamy beige head. Dry malty base, roasted malts, coffee, shy hints of caramel.

Grzesiek79 (3179) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 16, 2012
Dobre piwo choć jak dla mnie nie rewelacyjne i nawet w swojej kategorii. Rubinowo-czerwone odcienie i gożki finisz są jak najbardziej porządane. Piwo lekko gryzie i zbyt głębokich łyków nie da się robić.

Erasmus_ro (1308) - Alabama, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle @ bar in Würzburg. Pours a dark brownish with a large, latte-colored head. Aroma is light roast, some coffee, caramel, herbal notes. Taste is lightly metallic in the beginning, light roast, some coffee, lots of light caramel notes, light butter. Grassy finish. Palate is light and refreshing.

pivnizub (8790) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle: ruby-amber coloured, smaller stable off-white foamy layer, sweetish - light to moderate - roasty to dark-malty nose; light to moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour, almost medium bodied and soft; sweetish fruity and dark-malty finish. A pleasant Schwarzbier...

BlackHaddock (3635) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 17 Dec 2010, my second beer during my 2 July 2010 German beer evening. Poured (twice) into my ’Paderborner’ tall vase shaped glass. Dark brown with reddy hints with a thick tan head. The aroma was of burnt/roasted/toasted malts with semi-sweet molasses as it warmed. The taste was malty, but a little dry up front, the dryness continueing throughout the mouthfeel. I thought the body a bit thin, but I always do with German black beers, they just seem to lack character where they most need it and have very little richness or depth.
