KimJohansen (10435) - Frederiksberg C, Dnemark, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2008
Dark brown with red glimts and a wonderfull huge dark beige head. Stuuning appearance. Sweet aroma with loads of roasted malt, coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Sweet flavour with loads of burned malt, coffee, chocolate and liqeurice. Absolutely lovely schwarzbeer. But I would call it a stout.

pivnizub (10312) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2010
Bottle (traded with Allen, big thanks!): Literally black with a lacy brown-beige head; roasted malt and cacao powder, accompanied by a subtle fruitiness, in the sweet-bitter nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, smooth; robust sweet-bitter finish with tons of roasted malt and cacao-powder. Very good, very aromatic swiss "Stout"......

JorisPPattyn (9672) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2007
Black beer with dark beige head. Coffee, a bit cheesy, faraway chocolate & tobacco aromas. Some hops, lots of coffee, chocolate and a very dry aftertaste. Nearly full-bodied, pretty thick, certainly for a Schwarzbier. Nice beer, curious about the category - lots of characteristics of mild, non-sweet stout! Danke, Herrn Unterseeer

MoritzF (9564) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2010
(bottle, with thanks to Allen!) Black coloured hue with a brown and dense mid-sized foamy head. Sweet roast-malty aroma with notes of chocolate, marzipan and a touch of cassis. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Hearty malty taste with roasted notes, chocolate, a tinge of coffee and a berry-fruity touch; moderately roasted malty and subtle fruity finish with choco and hoppy notes. Pretty superb…wait a minute…Porter !? 28.I.10

arminjewell (9423) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Pour on tap at Crunchys dark black pour with caramel colored head, aroma brought blueberry, cocoa, smoke, some slight oaky notes with coffee, slight caramel, toffee. Taste was sweet cocoa, caramel into roast, coffee, smoky notes into a bit of earth and spice, finishing with a fairly overwhelming blueberry note. Very interesting brew.

Quack-Duck (9356) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2008
bottle, brought to me by my parents - Dankeschn! Clear deep dark black colour, dense and creamy brownish-beige head. Looks like oil floating into my glass. Deliciously malty nose. Full-bodied, flavours of malt, roasetd malt, coffee, dark chocolate and cocoa powder, combined with a shy fruityness of dark dried fruits, raisins, prunes... Lingering finish with a shy touch of aromatic hops. Perfectly balanced, a delicious brew.
