fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2011
Bottle from Markgrafen, Würzburg
Beige color; generous compact head. As often happens, there is a strong aroma of paper and cardboard, and just light roasted malt. Simple caramel and roasted malt flavo, with some residual sweetness and a milky feeling. Low bitterness. Quite poor.

Koelschtrinker (17712) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 1, 2011
Stimmig malziger Antrunk, weich. Wenig Röstmalzaromen sind dabei vorhanden, außerdem eine leichte Herbe. Darüber hinaus hat das Bier nicht viel zu bieten, mit der Zeit wird es wässrig, was aber nicht störend ist. Im Abgang sind die Röstnoten weniger intensiv. Ein einfaches Schwarzbier, aber immerhin.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
Dark brown. Kind of thin, toasty nose. Sweetish palate, full body, and has a malta-like sweetness.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
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.

DSG (12170) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 8, 2008
(6/21/08) Draught at Thüringer Hof in Leipzig. Black yet not opaque with a medium beige head. Interesting aroma of some smoke, roasted malt, grains and faint hints of coffee. Sweet flavor of malt, caramel, coffee hints and nice roastiness. Finishes slightly drier with some burnt malt. Medium-bodied. I like this one.
