bottle. Bath beer eh? people in Germany pour this into their bath water...ok but this bottle cost me about $3.80...I mean wow, better be really good for your skin or something! Anyways, I drank mine...poured a dark dark amber black with a foamy tan head that diminished, very very sweet malt taste, definite chocolate taste to it, some roasted flavor, so sweet though...I was almost put off by the sweetness, but i did enjoy it.

thegreenrooster (4284) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2005
Pours a jet black with no head at all. Aroma is of a roasted cream. Very sweet smelling. Flavor is very smooth and creamy. A very earthy and peat flavor mixed with some sweet vanilla is how i would describe this one. Very sweet and thick and a differnt kind of a nice style.

Dark blackish hue, with an elusive foam, burnt toast, roasted malt, dark bitter chocolate, coffee, burnt grains aromas follow through a medium-bodied palate, with dark coffee, roasted coffee grains, hint of cacao saying hello!, within a discreet bitterness finish, coming from his roasted malt. only my nose had the chance to take a bath in this beer.

Pours black with tan head. Nose is smoky and reminds me of peat moss. Flavor is strange. Roasted chocolate malt. Thin body with little mouthfeel. Not a favorite.

One bottle from Beers of the world as a Christmas present. I do not enjoy beers with notes of coffee or a smokey malt taste.

jimhilt (2597) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Pours with a one-finger tan head that fades to nothing leaving no lace. Almost black. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is roasted coffee. Starts like a mild porter with some roasted coffee at the finish. $3.04 for a 500ml bottle from Olivers Beverages Albany, NY.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Flavor = toffee rich malts with a coffee touch. Carbonation is medium while head low. Deep red-black and tanic. If you need a bath, evidently, this is the beer for you. Aroma of sour molasses malts. Light hops.

Silphium (3196) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2004
It took me awhile to guess the style but I finally remembered the word "Schwarzbier." Havent had any Schwarzbiers in awhile I guess. Deep red-brown body, thin/medium light cream head. Roasty and rather chocolatey aroma, also very bready. Tart body with chocolate, toast, burnt caramelized sugars, earthy bready tones, and leafy hops. Pretty complex overall and very smooth. Sometimes borders on being a bit too thin-bodied but the malt complexity always comes to the rescue.

jgb9348 (6052) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Dark brown colour with a lighter tan head. Aroma of smoke, roasted malt and bittering characteristics. Medium-light bodied; Bitter coffee flavour with roasted malt showing through. Overall, nice-good to try! I sampled this beer on 15-May-2004 at the May RB Party in Toronto, Onatrio.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2004 Very dark with a small head, aroma of coffee grounds, a little metallic and smoky. Thin mouthfeel, some chocolate, coffee and vanilla notes, sweet, a little scorched like charcoal. Drinkable, but it seemed a bit washed out.
