3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black,. yellow brown foam that lasts. Sour aroma with a hint of burned malt. Thick with low carbon. Malty taste with a little fruit. Strong aftertaste, coffee and chocolate that lasts somewhat. Not a typical scwarzbier and not well balanced.
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, molasses, unsweetened chocolate), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of smoke, anise, minerals, prune, charcoal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Really cool aroma starts things off on the right foot, almost resembling a "hot rocks" Steinbier; smoky and stony notes accent the roasty malt well. Could use a bit more finishing bitterness to make it more drinkable, but it's plenty nice as-is. It's beers like this why I love Germany so much...Old World charm abounds with this; clean and offering aromas you will never get from any other country. oobawa (1862) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 15, 2017
Pretty good schwarzbier, with a solid dark malt front backed up by deep toffee, mocha, and dried fig and date notes. Mild bitterness leads to a clean, roasty fade. Tons of chocolate and roasted malt on the nose. Smells better than it tastes, but still a good pint. Jabic (735) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 20, 2017
Ar: Semi-sweet toast; a light char; floral hoppiness. Ap: Deep amber-brown; almost opaque; medium-large mocha head with good retention, leaving a compact foam cap and true egg-white consistency along the glass sides in a chunky, scattered pattern. T: Tangy toasted malt; malt is clean; toffee and caramel; very light coffee; medium-high bitterness, very peppery hop flavor alongside; like candied malt throughout. P: Medium body with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: A pleasure of a schwartzbier; deep malty backbone, very rich, accented with roast notes; quite bitter with a firmly clean fermentation profile; looks beautiful in the glass.
