TwinBeer (58) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Pours medium black with soft tan head and great lacing down the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and carmel and taste the same but with some leather and nice smooth yeast to complete the taste. Overall a great example of the style and hard to put down the glass.

Bottle from Matsons in cork. Pours black with tan head. Earthy, toasty, roasted malts in the aroma. Spice, earthy, roasts, toast, coffee flavour with a hint of chocolate and smoke. It has a thicker texture than I expected. Nice beer with plenty malt flavours with earthy European hops in the background.

Bottle from Beer of the Month delivery. Aroma of roasted malts. Very thin palate.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 On tap at Black Forest Inn German restaurant. Dark brown pour. Aroma is dark malts, yet sweet. Taste is sweet up front, dry and slightly ashy but delicious. Good stuff.

4-pack of 16 ounce cans. Really a lightweight Schwarzbier. The aroma is pretty good, but I'm getting little in the way of malts. Black in color but not in taste.

Often, these type of dark beers are either too malty, sweet or bitter, but this beer balances these flavors well. The bitterness comes as a slight aftertaste and does not linger. Quite pleasant.

Black (!) appearance - not much body. Mild liqorice aroma, bitter foretaste, sweeter after taste. Ok .

ferjho224 (41) - MEXICO - DEC 12, 2017
Dark beer, good creamy head with medium retention, toasty aroma, toasted and caramel flavour.

psilosophy (827) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - DEC 8, 2017
Bouteille de 50cl. Couleur brune, mousse moyenne de faible tenue. Arôme de mats torréfiés, le houblon apparaît en fin de bouche. Manque de personnalité. Carbonnation moyenne. Trouvée à auchan

Delicious bitter hoppy flavor, nice deep dark color. Not much foam Very nicely styled bottle. Goes well with pork

biilz (277) - SPAIN - NOV 24, 2017
Вполне неплохое темное немецкое пиво. Аромат сильно жженый с привкусом хлеба. Цвет очень темный, пена практически отсутствует. Во вкусе ощущается жженый карамель с черным хлебом. Послевкусие идет плавно с легкой кислинкой.
