TAR (2777) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Draught at Hausbrauerei Altstadthof: Penetrable black. Fizzling off-white head mostly dissipates. Dull and uninviting nose of medicine, plum and cola. Lighter shades of minerals, dark chocolate truffles and earthy cocoa. Watery and flimsy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Overbearingly acidic roast clashes with potent chocolate. Extremely flabby with a faint overripe plum and medicine edge. Ensuing notes of paint and plastic exacerbate the fusel sharpness. Some malty lushness is vaguely perceptible, with much of it being obscured by the rotting plums. Finishes with a cola-like sweetness and malt-deadening fruity twang. Very muddled, limp and colalike, poor malt definition, etc. Quite lackluster. And apparently this was once a reputable schwarzbier worth traveling for. Bummer that no longer seems to be the case.

On tap at Aldstadthof Hausbrauerei, Nuremberg. Dark brown. Faint nuts, roasted malts, some caramel but all very faint. Sweet, slightly bitter, mild roastiness and coffee in the mouth. Light body for the style, chocolate and raisins finish.

Beese (3064) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Keg at Hausbrauerei Altstadthof, Nuremberg. A very dark brown colour. Nice, roasted malt aroma, with some dark sugar. The flavour contains some sweetness at first, before being taken over by building bitter roasted malt flavours. Very nice and far more reminiscent of a porter than a typical Bavarian dunkel.
