3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A black coloured lager with a nice white head which lasts a fair amount of time. The aroma is malty and a touch sweet. A little light roastiness also. The taste is quite roasty, and there is a little bit of chocolate. Quite stout-like in many ways. Drinkable and tasty. A decent schwarzbier.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Again in Würzburg. The pils was good so I gave the Scharzbier a tumble. Poured nearly black with a big brown head. Nose of heavy malt witih a hint of chocolate and coffee. Very good in the mouth, and smooth going down. A very excellent example of the type.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Almost black with a beige head. Aromas are light chocolate with sweet coffee. Malty with sweet mollasses and metal hints. Flavours are light chocolate malts with a smoky roast character. Has spices, cola and liquorice. Also has hints of curry (strangely). Addictive salt towards the finish. Quite light in flavour but a lot going on.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium-sized creamy head, dark-red almost black clear body. Aroma is sweet and raisin-like. Deep, dry toffee/raisin taste, which in the aftertaste dries up. An excellent schwarzbier. Taste could have lingered longer, though. (0.5l bottle.)
