Draught@Klosterbräu, Bambergskortila (5790) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2007
Dark ruby color, big cloudy off-white head. First there is mould and wood in the aroma, when beer warms up - tar and smoke. Woody, barrel-like mouldy flavors, toasted malts, tar, smoke, light milk chocolate. Hops rise in the aftertaste. Personal and excellent smokey Schwarzbier and currently clearly underrated in RB (with score 3.36).
Tap @ Klosterbräu. Aroma is of dark roasted malts, some licorice and has a smoked touch. Clear, dark brown coloured with an off-white, medium, lasting head. Taste is sweet with roasted dark malts and a smoked touch. Bit dry finish. caesar (7096) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2007
Clear dark brown color, medium off-white head. Aroma of some coffee, licorice, roasted malt, hint of smoke. Taste is a bit weaker, roasted malt, bit sweet. Very promising aroma, but taste doesn’t match with the expectations. goozen (4045) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2007
Tap at the Brauhaus, Bamberg 0,5ltr: Dark brown almost black Schwarzbier its a little sweet taste over its roasted malts. Skinnyviking (9550) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2007
Draught. High and lasting creamy off-white head. Very dark red body. Amost black. Very dry and hopppy burned barley malt aroma. Pretty bitter and hoppy flavor with low carbonation and long aftertaste.

Draught@Klosterbräu, Bamberg. Really nice Schwarzbier. This shows some lovely subtle roasty characters. Finish shows some light grassy characters from the hops. The palate is quite round, and it really very pleasant to drink. Good stuff. Maverick34 (3206) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2007
Draft. Dark brown to black. Thick tan head. Very light tasting for a schwarzbier, could taste malt, hops, etc. Very good. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2006
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown with a rocky offwhite head. Roasted malts aroma with hints of coffee and chocolate. Flavours are good roasted malts with caramel sweetness in the background. Bittersweet chocolate aftertaste. Medium body. A very good schwarzbier. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 2, 2006
Draught at the brewery, very dark with a very large slightly beige pillowy head. A complex aroma, roasted malt with rich chocolate. Strong roasted flavours with those chocolate notes, smooth and not too dry at first, but a good long dry finish. Delicious.
