Blackish colour with a brownish mostly lastin head. Aroma of malt, fruits and caramel. Flavour is not too sweet. Nice palate.

StueyD (1586) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2006 A dark, black beer with a strong creamy head. A clean syrupy nose with hints of fruit, caramel and liquorice. The taste is thick, treacley, fruity and extremely malty, there is a slight dryness in the finish.

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 Øl (50 cl) købt i Tyskand. Øllen er rimelig mild af en schwarzbier, men har eller de sædvanlige karakterer. Mørkebrun, med flot brunt skum. Filtreret. En anelse brændt i smagen, ellers bitter. Let lakridssmag. Duft også af lakrids. Den mangler kulsyre

larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2006
Medium beige head over dark red body that is almost opaque black. Faintly sweetish roasty aroma. Deep sweetish taste with some roastiness and burntness with toffee and hop notes. Kind of like unsweetened licorice. Dry, faintly roasty aftertaste. A nice, uncomplicated, easily drinkable schwarzbier. Could be more exciting.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2006
Bottle: Deep brown, nearly black, moderate to large foamy beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Roasted malt nose, grainy, hay and oats round it out.   Soft roasted malt start, fairly grainy when I thought it wouldn’t be, with a touch of wet cardboard.   Body and mouthfeel are average but nearing the thin side.   Touch of sweetness at the finish, slightly dry and chalky, but it just doesn’t seem to be as flavorful or robust compared to others.

rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2006
500 ml bottle. Head is initially creamy and great but disappears fast. Roasted aroma with some definitive caramel and possibly some chocolate resembling a stout. Smooth and gentle malt flavour. A very well balance beer that I really enjoyed. Just a touch of bitterness at the end and very easy to drink. Will I have it again ? You bet...

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2006
This one is impressive. Looks and feels like a stout, but lacking the umph. That’s OK, because its not a stout. The aroma doesn’t smack you in the face, nor do the hops. But you know they’re there. The flavor is smooth, consisting mostly of malt. There is a lot of carbonation, but it doesn’t bite. I like the subtle nature of this brew. I could wax poetic like Goethe if I had a couple more.

Beer5000 (6734) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2006
500 ml bottle. Dark brown, with a note of reddish body. Light brown, creamy head. A bit roasted aroma with a clear hint of caramel/chocolate. A clean, good balanced Schwarzbier.

3.6
RichardGretton (4785) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2006
Bottle. Dark black/brown beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is quite sweet and the flavour is smooth and gently sweet and slightly roasted. Overall a very nice beer.

3.3
oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2006
Bottled. Dark ruby red colour, small beige head. Malty aroma with burnt hints. Burnt malt with hints of hops and hay in flavour. Quite dry overall, but very wellbalanced Schwarzbier.
