3.1
pivnizub (10961) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2006
Bottle: Dark ruby to darek amber coloured, thin, lasting beige foam; faint aromas of roast malt, coffee and liquorice, a bit cardboardy, too; demi-sec, malty, bitter (cacao) flavour, quite light bodied, "half-dry" malty finish with a light chocolatey bitterness. A well rounded, pleasant Schwarzbier..........

3.7
KyotoLefty (10931) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2015
Tap at Huett’n. Lovely dark brown with crimson tints and a fine head. Nose of chocolate, cream, caramel. Sweet, chocolatey flavor, creamy, lightly bitter finish. Suffig. A bit too sweet, but very tasty.

cubs (10745) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle @ Chris’ house in Fürth. Dark brown appearance with a cream colored head. Somewhat buttery, fairly roasty aroma. Tangy, buttery, somewhat nutty, roasty flavor. Too bad the diacetyl ruins the beer.

3.3
gyllenbock (10275) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2016
At Huttn, Nuremberg. Brownish/amber with a small head. Aroma and taste of malt, caramel and some light dark fruit. Kind of soft and easy to drink.

MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2006
Impressions from the Gaststübe:
-Ample head sits over the opaque blackness.
-Roasted malt bitterness and molasses efficiently attract in both aroma and flavor profile.
-Huge malts and perfect carbonation make for a smashing body.
-Dark chocolate and nuts roam in this very fine schwarzbier.
-Not the most complex example, but it’s so rich and satisfying!

From the bottle at the brewery.

MoritzF (10237) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2007
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a thick, off-white foamy head. Slightly dusty and sweet aroma with a distinctive citousy hop aroma. Light-sweet flavour, medium to light bodied with an almost crispy carbonation. Slightly roasted, malt accented taste with an underlying citrousy fruitiness; moderately dry, slightly bitter finish with an aromatic hoppy tinge.

2.9
Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2008
Dark brown with a huge, nice, white head. The aroma has light notes of roasted malt, caramel and hints of coffee. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of caramel, roasted malt, light coffee and a slightly dry citrus. It’s OK, but IMO not as convincing as the other nice beers from this brewer.

JoeMcPhee (10187) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
0.5L bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Deep amber/light brown beer. Aroma is herbal and a little bit chewy with a soft vienna-like sweetness. A bit crackery and fairly dry for this style. Less roasty and cocoaish compared to other versions of this style. LIngering caramelly sweetness.

3.3
JorisPPattyn (10138) - BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2006
Very deep dark burgundy-chestnut beer with a medium beige head, rather persistent. Rather surprising estery-flowery nose (this is bottom fermenting beer, after all). Some sweet-bready-malty notes too, at least - but again in the finish... almond and banana? Dry, roasted grains, with a soft sweet underbuild. Bit of cacao, burnt grain hulks; acorn tips or something similar. And retronasal again some esters - remarkable. Not a lot of body, bit watery. Esters etc. made me expect a chewier texture. Interesting because it seems to make a link from Franconian Braun to Schwarzbier or even Porter. But it could stand some beefing up. Seems well attenuated, however.

3.8
blipp (10115) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Slightly roasted malts, a hint of grains, and just a touch of sweetness. Good stuff.
