Bottle, Marktstubn, BambergErzengel (8695) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2015
Dark brown with a thick head. Toasty character is assertive with nice chocolate notes and a fairly nutty flourish in the dry finish. Some toffeeish notes add complexity. Toffee notes emerge as it warms. Nice brew.
*Old rating, best before 27.08.10. Dark and roasted brew. Earthy flavours, intense and heavy roasted malt. Hints of sweetness, quite dry, burned bread. Great with a moderate bitterness in the end fitting in well. kappldav123 (6100) - GERMANY - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Starts fine malty, modest dry, nice smokey notes. Not as sweet as other schwarzbiers, more spicy. Finish well balanced, malty-spicy, still interesting smokey notes. Good one! Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2011
The beer in the glass is very dark brown, fine with good cream head. Very roasting coffee and toffee-like aroma, some caramel is also there. The beginning part is caramelly, with lots of toffee and a good bitter coffee aroma! The aftertaste coffee roasting, subtly bitter, again with plenty of toffee! In the further course rules the toffee flavor, coupled with decent coffee and a caramel note, which loses something of bitterness.

Steinkrug @ Windfelder Stegaurach. Roast and a bit of beechwood in both aroma and flavor. Ash. Totally dry, yet with some malt character. Loads of character in this excellent beer. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2009
Bottle @ dive bar. Dark brown color with red tint. Lots of lace. Tight beige head. big, sweet malty aroma. Soft smooth palate. Bready dough malts predominate. Cookies. Teddy bear, cuddly beer more like a braunbier than a schwartz but very drinkable. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2010
It’s dark, red-brown with a creamy head, and the aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, licorice and syrup. The flavour is light to moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, syrup, caramel and licorice – a really nice schwarzbier. JorisPPattyn (9981) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2010
Medium, lightly beige head over foxy-amber beer with golden highlights. Bready, nutty malts nose, very lightly roasted; discreet. Fresh, leafy-greenery tatste with parsly, and again (hazel)nutty notes. Bitterish aftertaste, roasted-hoppy; light body with some slickness. Bitterness grows in time. Nice dark lager. Not really a Schwarzbier in my experience. Txs, Sebastian! MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2012
(swing top bottle) Hazy, dark brown colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Rich roast-malty aroma, slightly leafy with notes of caramel, dark chocolate and a tinge of molasses. Bitter-sweet flavour, a bit slim bodied with a soft carbonation. Tastes like liquid Malzbonbons from Bavaria with the right bitterness-sweetness ratio; rather dry and slim roasty bitter finish. 16.X.12
