TAR (2729) - Marshall (Asheville area), 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.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2004
On draught at Altstadthof. Aroma of toasty malt, dark brown sugar and some breadiness, also faint fruitiness (yeast esters?). Attractive deep mahogany hue, clear, with a creamy and lasting head. Flavor is similarly malty and sweet, some light chocolate and pumpernickel notes, with a very fruity, again apparent yeast character in the finish, along with traces of licorice. Mouthfeel is smooth and lightly carbonated, medium-bodied. Very pleasant.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Pours dark brown with a red gleam and a fine though disappearing tan head. Lots of milk chocolate and creamy notes in the aroma. Full and nicely balanced. Sweet smoooth chocolaty flavor with toffee, malt and brown sugar. Really tasty and highly drinkable. Thanks a lot ChristianSA :-)

armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 16, 2008
I taked it away in a one-liter flip-top bottle. Poured dark ruby-black with a creamy, delicious lacing beige head.Characteristic earthy aroma with roasted malt,cacao, some sourish yeast. Moderated carbonation, fine tart, a mountain of roasted garins, coffe and dark chocolate, some earthy character. Lemony and roasted aftertaste. It was fine!!!

Bierkrug (2130) - - DEC 10, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2008 A great black beer. Lives up to its name and is very smoth for its type of beer. Nice light brown head and crisp carmel. Outstanding beer.

prawlie (1567) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2011
500 mL from a pot tankard at the Altstadthof hausbrauerai in Nurnberg. Foamy brown head, faint roasty aroma. Tastes like a mild, nice.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Draft at the brewpub. Diacetylic butterscotch aroma, with some caramel and sweetness. Dark brown to black body with a small tan head. Acidic flavor with some sweetness and a light hoppyness in the end.

kapusil (1356) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 24, 2013
1l bottle. Reddish dark brown body, light brown head. Aroma of coffee, dark fruits and creme. Pretty much like the aroma of a good stout. Lots of coffe in the taste with creme and dark fruits. Very balanced beer. I like it.
