3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep mahogany with off-white head. Toasted grains, chocolate, and caramel. Smells great, just what you want from a dark German. The taste is a little off, starts off sweet and grainy, but has a bitter (almost metallic finish). I think this one might have been sitting in the fridge a little bit too long. Will have to try it again fresh.
50cl bb11/2017 merci idiosynkrasie for catering to another preferred style. - Somewhat of a misnomer, going by the smaller print and Bierartbeschreibung "Dunkel Export" here. Immediately betrays its Dunkel pedigree in its stewed maroni caramel nose, some straight up cooked barley soup and Schwarzbrot sourness - no real intensely aromatic Schwarz roast. More Dunkel export and diluted caramel sirup in taste, tolerable but standard, with an grassy bitter finish that partly makes me question this Schwarz’s origins in a lighter export. Not bad as such that... tgrtnr (260) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2017
500 ml bottle, served in mug. Pours brown-reddish with medium-sized head. Roasted malt, nuts, raisins, some smoke, a bit acidic. Light bitterness, overall mild taste. Light bodied, soft carbonated. A bit watery and therefore easy drinking even in summer. Okay Dunkel. hrabren (1328) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 31, 2016
0.5 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Višnja 666 and Goran. Reddish brown, small off-white head. Caramel, metallic, light roasty, nuts. Sweet, malty, nutty. Light body, soft to medium carbonation, light sweet finish. Average. glennmastrange (2897) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2016 Tap.Moderate toasted bread and faint dark chocolate for the malt, light herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with hints of faint baking spice. Head is average size, frothy, light beige, with fair lacing and good legs and is mostly lasting. Color is clear dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and bitter. Palate is medium, creamy with a lively carbonation. Perfect Schwartzbier. Great flavor, excellent feel, and superb balance. kalunapz (168) - CROATIA - MAY 25, 2016
boca o.5L, klasični tamni lager, boja više tamno smeđa nego crna, blagog okusa i arome, lijepo gazirano, sve u svemu ništa posebno..

Pours an dark amber color with small off-white head. Smell is mostly of malts.
Taste is pretty simple - malts with a bit of caramel. Roasty aftertaste. Body is thin and feels a bit empty and watery. Medium carbonation, dry finish.
Overall, pretty bland and unimaginative. Trolleo (1683) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 7, 2016
Clear brown to black color with red hue. Firm and long lasting head. Caramel, some nuts and malt. Taste is too sweet, lots of caramel and some candy. Thin body, soft carbonation. Had better. //bottle at Craft Room hvn (325) - Nuuk, GREENLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Wygląd: Gęsta drobnopęcherzykowa piana, świetny lacing. Piwo o ciemno rubinowym kolorze. Zapach: Ciemne słody, delikatne nuty jakby wiśniowe. Smak: Przypalona skórka od chleba oraz kawa. Ogólnie: Dobre piwo, ciut zbyt słodkie jednakże jest to i tak pozycja godna polecenia.ranger7 (8) - Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2015 does not count

Very nice. Had this "vom fass" at the brewery. Fresh and delicious.
Lightly roasted malt scent, rich dark copper color, easy drinker with medium mouth feel. The best example of this style I’ve had. Mortlach (2440) - Rome, ITALY - JUN 20, 2015
On tap @Brasserie 4:20 (Rome). Pours deep brown with a decent off-white/beige head. Aroma is terribile, metallic notes, sewer, dirty socks, wtf? Flavour is roasted malts, dirty water (sewer?), mild bitter. Light body, watery, flat. Terrible experience.
