Draught at Altstadthof.
Head is mostly diminishing.
Body is dark brown.
Aroma is moderately malty (coffee, chocolate, roasted grain, husks), with a note of diacetyl.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, husky.
Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.
Such a shame when a once-great beer is no longer so. Not as bad as the Helles, but very dull and disappointing. jonas (7549) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 17, 2005

Strawberry earthy aroma.
Cloudy red brown,
stable brown creamy head.
Doughy minerally fruit (strawberry).
Fullbodied, creamy mouthfeel.
Draft at the brewpub. Wow ... another delicious offering at this little place! Roasty malt, toasty and finishing with a nice little mildly sweet flourish. I love little hausbrauerei! (#4380, 11/30/2011) jfb (6229) - GERMANY - JUN 18, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2010 (draught) pours the darkest ruby colour with a frothy dark beige head. aroma of herbal hops and brown sugar, toasted malts, slightly musty but in a good way. flavour is the same, with lots of toasted grain, very smooth, with a slightly alcoholic roasted-bitter finish. medium-bodied with smooth carbonation. kappldav123 (6097) - GERMANY - OCT 27, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown in the glass, nice head. Roasty-malty aroma. Starts roasty-malty, soft, some nutty notes, a bit sweetish. Also some earthy notes. Finish a bit too mild. Okay.

Tap in Nürnberg, dark-colored, sweet and malty, a little portery malt in with the fruit, some nice roast, faint hops. Malty but with sufficient balance, has nothing to do with a Schwarzbier as I know it, but it is sufficiently süffig! Marko (5596) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 4, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Poured a very dark red body, blackish, with a tan head. Soft raisiny malty nose, nice, some coffee in there too. light taste, light chicory that goes into the aftertaste. some ho-hum hoppy bitterness, but it doesn’t detract much. The maltiness is fine enough, soft, but it all ends dry. Far better than the helles at least. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Great, true black color with thick beige head. Cola aroma has some coffee grounds too. Slick palate has a little diacetyl. The coffee flavors are pronounced and has a porter quality to it as well as coffee creamer but not in a bad way. Drinkable. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Dark mahogny with a big, beige, creamy head. A bit more roast in the nose, still quite on the sweet side. Not bad.
Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. A huge dissapointment. I drove 13 hours from Copenhagen to Nürnberg just to taste this beer. And it sucked. Beautiful reddish brown coloured. Very buttery aroma with sour lactic notes. The same in the flavour. Very infected and very undrinkable. Brewpubs selling infected beer thinking they can get away with it are highly unserious. Altstadthof is one of them.
