The Baron Schwarzbier is a classic German black beer.  The color is black with tinges of ruby and brown.  The flavor is full and crisp.  The Schwarzbier starts with a slight roast flavor upfront followed by a faint chocolate body with a very crisp clean lagered finish.  A very full yet drinkable lager.

Black,minimal tan head.Neutral nose. Sweet roasty profile,undercarbonated, vaguely acetic, cloying sweetness

One of my favorite styles in the fact that they have a lot of character with a very smooth and light body so you don’t get full after a pint, and this was pretty well done. Creamy on the palate with a roasty chocolate malt flavor and hints of melted caramel. Slight smoked character in the finish. Pours dark brown with a small khaki head.

(Draught) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival 2007 in Victoria on September 8th, 2007. Lasting white creamy head with a deep brown. Again, the spicy yeast. Interesting stuff. Brown malt, wet wheat. Somewhat lacking the malt for a Schwarzbier?

GCBF sample. Tasty dry chocolate. Nice and very much as described "Starts with a slight roast flavour followed by a faint chocolate body".

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2007
6/30/07 On Draught at the Seattle International Beerfest. Aroma is malty with smoke, caramel and butterscotch notes. Appearance is dark brown with an off-white head. Flavor is sweet malt forward followed by red fruit notes and candy flavors. Mouthfeel is medium/light bodied with good carb texture for being such a low bite. Overall, an enjoyable light bodied beer that’s very easy drinking.

Enniskillen (2061) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Body is black with brown edges, thin light tan head. Aroma is lightly smokey, licorice, roasted malts, with a little bit of coffee. Taste is lightly roasted, some caramel, some hazelnut to it also. Could be fuller, but a good beer.

BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Bottle: Dark mahogany, nice head and lacing. Nose of peanut shells and light roast, some caramel in the flavor. Nutty and roasty, nice smooth finish. A bit lacking in the roast department but plenty nutty and still tasty.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Spunky chocolate aroma with some fruit. Deep reddish amber in color, very little head (I want my schwarzies to be a little blacker). Slightly fruity flavor, some chocolate, noble hops and residual roastiness. Fairly clean. Kind of like a lager brown ale. Cheers to André.

jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle: Dark brown pour with a smaller tan head. Malty nose with fruit and roasted notes. A little smoky? Taste is a softer malt presence with dark fruits and a bready feel. Mild in intensity, but not bad.
