On tap at the San Francisco brewpub. Dark brown with garnet undertones. The off-white medium sized head lasts OK in the glass. Has an odd, earthy aroma. Perhaps a little licorice as well. Odd slightly sour chemical flavor. Thin body. Medium sweetness. Weird off flavors just make this tough to drink. Tmoney99 (14455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2006
(Miami) Draft. Poured dark brown with a average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly. Good toasted malt aroma. Medium body. Solid sweet roasted malt flavor with a smooth light bitter finish. Solid brew. jon112981 (327) - Bristow, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2006
Tap in DC. Black pour with white head. Almost no aroma. A very watery taste complemented by a clean coffee finish 9er (92) - Maryland, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Sweet finish, malty flavor deep rich dark amber color. Frothy head lasts about 5 minutes. Rasin and coffee hints. g scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Draft - Tyson’s Corner, VA - Deep brown, creamy off white head. Nose was very soft with notes of roasted chocolate, coffee and florals. Similar flavor of dry roasted chocolate, mild coffee, and touches of grass. A light hop helping steps in let to provide balance. Light bodied, light carbonation, soft roasted, lightly bitter finish. Nothing special...

Tap at the DC restaurant. Opaque black with a slim light brown head. Sweet slightly roasted malty aroma. Malty taste with some dark fruit and late bitterness. Medium bodied. Very good. jrob21 (3684) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Draft in Atlanta. There special beer today was not that special. Very watery taste. Coffee touch is nice but overpowering. lovibond (115) - New York, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Draft at Tempe, AZ, brewpub. Dark and nearly opaque, with ruby highlights. Dark malt and fruit in aroma. A hint of goat in taste which is dominated by dark malt and a bit of raisin, without being roasty; would not be atypical in Erlangen (would need more roastiness for Kulmbach).

Watery ebony body, whitish head. Smell is roasted malts, caramel and slight chocolate. Taste is sweet with caramel and chocolate, aftertaste is roasted coffee hops. Not a bad schwarzbier, a little thin for my liking though and lacking complexity. Simple Macrobrew. Sampled at Godon Biersch, Tysons Corner, VA. Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2005
On draught. Tasted during trip to California. Cloudy dark brown colour with a nice head. Good aroma coffee. But not a speciel good taste for a schwarzbier. The end of the taste is very unplesant.
