Schwarzbier label at Bon Vivant tasting last night. Dark brown, very clear, no head. Roasted woody aroma. Flavor is woody, light molasses, nose, sharp sour chocolate flavor, light bodied, light finish. Malaclemys (464) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 8, 2014

330ml Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with medium, fizzy head. Aroma is caramel and cereal malts. Taste is heavy on the roast grains with a hint of chocolate and nuts. Flavors then move into a slight grassy hops into the finishing. The beer is pretty light-bodied for a Dunkel, almost watery. Not terribly remarkable but a decent speciman.

Pours a nice deep brown with a quickly dissipating tan head. Nutty, coffee aroma, with perhaps a little bit of fruit. Flavor is of coffee with sweeter caramel notes. Palate is fairly lively. grat (432) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 27, 2004
I would be much more inclined to call this an American Dark Lager but I digress. Coffe and copper. Fizzy. Undeinable corny dry flatness. Reminds me of St. Pauli’s Dark only much more flavorful. Cherries and much more of a refined sweetness. However it is still carny. Nose is underwhelming. Flavors are as well. Corniness immediately. Flat dry palate with lots of leftover chemically adjunctness. Sweet but not artfully. Very unremarkable. Comes and goes. Flavors remind me of coke. All in all I want my money back but once again I digress.

his was labeled a Schwarz bier, not a dunkle. Bummer. It poured a transparent brown allowing light thru. Schwarz bier does not. No head and a pleasant but average aroma. Taste was sweet from the malt with a better than average carbonation. Somewhat thin to average mouth feel. Aftertaste was ok. cgreb (422) - Marburg, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle - clear amber Brown beer with no foam. Very nice malty Aroma. Flavour is malty sweet balanced with a light bitterness. Medium carbonation. klas (415) - SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle bought in Germany. Dark with small head. Malty aroma and taste. Rather ordinary. Crafty07 (404) - Florence, Kentucky, USA - MAR 1, 2008
deep mahogany pour with lasting off-white head, this ’ur-bock’ has a slightly off-putting aroma and but a slight bitter but dry finish.
I’m confused with the classification though. It says this a ’schwarzbier’ but it’s not dark and I don’t detect the usual roasted, chocolate malts one finds in such.
Do I have the right beer? It’s says ’Dunkle’ but its more Bock than Dunkle NJJereme (387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Poured a black/copper color with a light off-white head. Strong aroma of malts. Fairly well-balanced b/w hops and malts. Slight tinge of caramel. Light to medium bodied with an easy finish. Not bad.
