Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2008
Near black colored with red hints. Little light brown head. Sweet caramelly aroma with licorice and handmade yeasty note too. Good one, though not the most traditional schwarz beer aroma. Flavor is more dry with still caramel and licorice, aftertaste has yeast with some lemon. Good beer.

TEJA (2779) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2010
A friend brought a bottle from Germany for a tasting. The tasting was one week after best before date and unfortunantly the beer was more like a Rodenbach than a Schwarzbier.

Erasmus_ro (2722) - Alabama, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Tap @ brewpub 01/02/13. Pours black with auburn tinges and a medium, latte-colored head. Aroma is caramel, roasted, chocolate, delicious. Strong chocolate. Taste is chocolate again, dark fruitiness, light roast. Palate is light with not much carbonation. Not as delicious as the aroma lets you expect.
