DSG (10073) - 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.

shrubber85 (9646) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 17, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Aroma fairly subtle malt. Nice dark color with good head. Very nice strong malt flavor with the barest hint of molasses/treacle - very little sweetness. Very full palate. Next to no bitterness. An extremely good Schwarzbier. (Drank from bottle at Wuerzburg Hofbrau so this was extremely fresh).

leaparsons (9271) - Leicester, 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.

MoritzF (9041) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2008
(bottle) Pitch black coloured hue with a thick and slowly lacing beige foamy head. Light-sweet, delicately roasted malty aroma, slightly leafy with notes of chocolate, coffee and a shy whiff of herbal hops. Light-bitter flavour with shades of acidity, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Roast-malty taste with chocolate, liquorice and traces of coffee; quite dry and moderately roasty, slightly bitter finish (12.05.08).

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.

larsga (6943) - 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.)
