Beautiful dark brownish red. Sugary aroma. When touched to the lips, a definite butterscotch taste. Followed by some caramel and chocolate. Frothy head which disapates rather quickly. Geiserich (4519) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 18, 2003

Dark brown, almost black with a thick off-white head. Thick caramel and chocolate German malt aroma. Chocolate malt and earthy grains are most dominant. Finish is sugary sweet, but a little thin, otherwise a pretty good schwarzbier. notalush (5873) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Dark brown color with very slight, white lacing - mildly fruity aroma, with some smokiness - relatively full-flavored, with dark malts, roastiness, and hints of dark fruits - finishes with some smoke and peppery flavor - quite decent. bierkoning (13349) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2003
Frothy head. Malty chocolate aroma and flavor. Sweetish with some licorice. Nice and easy beer with enough flavor, but lacks some "bite".

This was pours in a very eloquent and deeply rich dark brown color with a huge foamy head. Some very sweet malts with caramel and assorted dark fruits in the aroma, and follow through in the taste. Very smooth and creamy all the way into the finish. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2003

Roasty and dry with a nice touch of sweetness in the middle. Very dry finish. Body was smooth but thin. Ungstrup (37556) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2003
[draft] A deep red beer with a beutiful head. The flavor is sweet with notes of black currant and yeast. The aroma has a thin start compared to the aroma but then a bitterness from the malt takes over. The malt-flavor is dominated by roasted and black malt. The aroma containes absolutely no sweetness. It ends on a rather dry malt bitter note on the tongue. Not at all what I expected. I thought it would be sweeter and not so bitter.
