Dark brown colour of the body with aroma of roasted bread and coffee. Beer had light brown head. Light sweet and coffee finish.

MarcoBasile (330) - DENMARK - JUN 26, 2017
Pours black with a brown tint, large off-white to beige frothy head. Aroma of malts, pepper corn, burnt sugar and grassy hops. Taste is light but with decent notes of hops and sweet malts. Little roastyness. Watery texture, medium carbonation, light body.

adamnase (638) - Kronoby, FINLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Canned 50 cl. Almost black color, good creamy foam. Aroma: caramel, roasted malts, light smoked and burnt bread crust. Taste: sweet, burnt and caramel malt, slightly velvety.

Calkiem przyzwoity lekki czeski ciemniak, ladnie pachnie ?wie?ym chmielem i ciemnymi s?odami. W smaku lekko troche pe?ni czekolady, szorstkosci od ciemnych slodow. Na upal idealnie.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2017 Is much like a bog standard lager other than the colour. Weak and watery, but a relatively crisp and refreshing and a bit malty.

datrael (476) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 30, 2017
W aromacie trochę kakao, ciemny chleb, skórka od chleba. W wyglądzie brąz wpadający w czerń, obrączka beżowej piany. W smaku ciemny chleb, słaba kawa, skórka chlebowa, zboża. Pijalne, ciało średnie, całkiem się, goryczka niska. Ogólnie średni schwarzbier

Sebilinz (2323) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle. Black body tan head. Aroma is malty grainy. Taste is nearly the same but with some roasted malts. Aftertaste is malty.

kraddel (7871) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle as part of a birthday giftset of czech beers. Thnx! Pours very dark brown, small, bit creamy head. Smell is very maltforward some chocolate and roasty notes, some noble hops, gentle but very nice and rather intense. Taste is rather bitter, grainy, roasty, bit chocolate / coffee notes from the roast. Still nicely hopped, some noble hops, and a very nice yeasty flavor to it. Very different than other swarzbier’s i’ve had, mainly since this is czech style, probably. i do like it ! Very intense taste for the ABV as well. Decent MF and carbo. What’s not to like ?

Greetings from Bydgoszcz, Poland to all Beer Geeks and Hopheads around the world!

mike_77 (6603) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2017
Dark brown with lasting head. Aroma and flavour have some dark malts and a touch of bittersweetness.

Serapac (471) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 22, 2017
On tap, Red Baron, Tegel Airport Berlin. Dark brow, large beige head. Aroma malt, coffee, some chocolate. Bitter-sweet taste, finish mainly bitter. Rather lacking in body, but not surprising, given the low ABV. Drinkable.
