I was pretty disappointed with this beer. Pours a nice dark brown/black color with a small kahki head. Aromas and flavors are pretty light and consist of caramel, smoked malt, chocolate and roasted nuts. Mouthfeel is watery and finishes without much notice. A bland beer...........one of the worst German Schwarzbiers I’ve had.

Pours a thick creamy brownish head. Ok lacing. Has a very dark brown/black appearance. Aromas of yeast, roasted malts, breads and resin hops. Also toasty and vanilla scents. Flavours are toasty, roasted malts, toffee, notes of caramel. Hints of vanilla, sweet/dark malts, grainy and molasses. Nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. Slightly oily, creamy mouthfeel and mouthcoating sensation. Lively carbonation. Goes down really smooth. Great beer!

Ar: Soft, fluffy malt with a smooth roast; bit of herbal hops with fresh-grass notes; very slight sulfur. Ap: Dark brown and opaque; medium tan head with moderate-good retention, leaves a thin but solid cap of foam. T: Melanoidin maltiness, a bit of cracker; herbal hops, touch of pineapple; roast is very subtle, refined with a hint of ash; lightly chalky; bitterness is medium, with some slight black tea, both in bitterness character and flavor; yeast profile is quite clean, but has a single note of pineapple, very refined. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finish is very dry. O: A good schwartzbier; roast is very fine and subtle, really making the beer seem like pilsner here and there; some nice malt and hop flavor; drying, crisp, and clean.

0,5l on tap @ Katskeller. Pours very dark brown with a high and thick off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts. Flavor is roasted earthy malts, some coffee and some hops. Good.

een schwarzbier;een donker pils achtige bier met zeer zachte smaaktoontjes;best lekker donkere mouten,beetje rozijn maar vooral vlak vluchtig en zeker geen honing terug te proeven leuk om eens te proeven, geen stayer

Bottle. Clear dark brown colour with a medium tan head, nose is malty, roasty and woody with notes of black bread crust, liquorice and syrup and some metallic hints, taste is more malty and less roasty than the nose, almost like an amber lager or helles, finish is only slightly bitter.

En klassisker, den smager af mørke malte og lakrids. Den har en fin sødme der passer til .

fernockibeer (108) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAY 28, 2017
Butelka do 24.22.17. Wygląd - przejrzysty, czarny kolor, z trwałą lekko beżową pianą. Aromat - karmel, słody, chleb i trochę trawiastości, oddalonych nut nie wyczułem. Smak - tutaj już są fajne czekoladowe smaki, troszkę pralin, kurs też trochę melasy, ale nie za dużo, jest też karmel i trawiastość. Ciało lekkie, dobrze pijane, tekstura lekko oleista. Nasycenie średnie.
