larsga (7310) - 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.)

BlackHaddock (6380) - 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.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
Bottle. A deep red beer with a big beige head. The aroma and taste is light roasted, dusty, of raisins and caramel malt. Medium body with a dry finish.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle @ brewery tap Wurzburg. Nice brown-black but they served in a pils glass and it looks funny. Smells like a Malta. Slightly fizzy and thin. Sweet but nice.

hayduke (4947) - 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.

Bottle. Black beer with a slight head. The aroma is lightly roasted and the flavour is malty, lightly roasted and slightly dry. Overall a nice beer.

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.
