little bit of red fruit in both appearance and aroma. Come citrus, maybe peach too. Too watery. Had this at a restaurant in Berlin Russo (2011) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JAN 16, 2011
Drank at Alcatraz in Berlin. Black rubish with thin beige head. Aroma is weak with just some malt. Flavor is too dry a little bit of roasted malt. Mouthfeel is dry and long. rubbishystuff (2521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Had this in Berlin in a cafe outside one of the museums on the Island. Not too bad. Slight mineral metallic taste(not in a bad way) Slight roasted flavor. Maybe not the strongest example of Schwarzbier but quite drinkable. Serving: Tap wacohoover (100) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2008
One of my favorite beers of all time. Drank this while on a trip to Berlin, at a bar I just happened to wander into. From the presentation (stem Schultheiss glass with gold trim and a Schulthiess paper "bib" around the bottom) to the head, to the temperature, to the finish, this beer is to me fantastic. While it is indeed a very dark beer, the flavor is quite light, possibly due to the high carbonation. This beer is ideal served highly chilled, and should have around a 1/2 inch head when pulled from the tap. Very nice.

Berlin Trip beer No. 15. On draft. Cola Dark body, small lose head. Very light body flavour wise. Tar, roasted nutty stuff some citrus. Short bitter finish. Kinda coats your tongue. Very highly carbonated. Ok - bit thin and didn’t really make much of an impression. joergen (27982) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2006

Draught from the Alte Kantine in Berlin’s Kulturbrauerei. Somewhat subdued notes, even for a Schwarz, very quaffable. Lightly roasted, a touch of chocolate, light and smooth. Would like to re-rate from the bottle. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Sampled this one on draught at a tavern in Berlin. Excellent example of schwarzbier, with lots of good dark malt aromas and flavors, and a touch of roast. Schultheiss Lager Schwarz pours to a beautiful, bright, deep brown to black color, with a thick white head, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent ,with good dark chocolate and nutty malt aroma, paired with light aromas of roast. The palate is polished and clean, with a sea of smooth dark malt flavor, coffee, and mild roast. This beer finishes with more of that great dark malt flavor, then ends bone dry and slightly roasty. An excellent schwarzbier, that works well with a number of hearty dishes. A great before and after dinner beer as well. shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Bottle - nice chocolate malt aroma. Very dark brown color - opaque. Milder chocolate malt flavor with moderate hops. Nice schwarzbier on the lighter side.
