COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t be fooled by the name—meaning “black” in Czech, “Cherny” refers to the color of this German-style Schwarzbier brewed true to the regional style of northern Bavaria. Dark roasted & aromatic malts combined with minimal hopping creates a wonderful beer with subtle hints of coffee and chocolate.

(En fût à la source): Anis, caramel, mélasse discrète et des notes rôties. Rond, souple et agréable.

Ernest (7815) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (malt syrup, wort, roasted grain, husks). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Shockingly poor compared to the wonderful Czech pils. How does the same brewery make both? Raw and dirty and rather sour too...couldn’t even stomach a 2oz sample.

They are calling this a Schwarzbier now on their menu, FWIW. Tap. Pours deep clear Ruby black, medium beige head, good lacing. Aroma is super roasty, lactose, a bit ashy. Flavor has a touch too much sweetness, light bitterness. A bit odd. Stale coffee? Light plus body.

Jow (4082) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Can from sledutah who helped me gather a bunch of these strange brews I was after. Cherry brownish black pour. Nose is dried fruit light cola. Tastes of flat cola, dried red fruits like cherry and raspberry, some caramel, and bread as well. Light bodied. Yippee 15 dunklers

12oz can pours a murky brown with a ring of white head. Nose has malt, pumpernickel bread, some dried fruit, hints of spice. Flavor is soggy bread, malt, some mild spice. Watery finish.

Can at the July DC tasting. Can. Poured a clear ruby color with a small white head. Aroma was light sweet malt notes. Toasted malts, light cherry notes, touch of roast.

I haven’t had a lot of dunkler bocks but this isn’t quite what I look for in a beer. Tangy odd aroma with copper. Amber pour with good head and lacing. Bottle.

Can. Clear ruby maroon color, tan head. Aroma of brownies and fruitcake. Taste is sweet malty roast. Very nice.
