maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2006
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.

Bottled: Black color, few, off-white foam. Aroma is roasty-malt with light sweet coffee notes. Flavor is sourly and salty, some grain notes. Dry in the end with some roasty notes. Astringent finish.

hayduke (4948) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 3, 2006
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.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2006
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.

larsga (7313) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2005
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.)
