On tap @ Gigs: Dark brown with some ruby highlights, 2 finger cap, laces the glass. Aroma is roasty but demure with some twiggy hop tones. Flavour has a tarditional Thuringa Schwartzbier profile - roasty up front, light bodied, noble hops bite, finish is clean, roasty and crisp.
A very good rendition of the style, light, roasty, dry - Kostritzer couldn’t do better.
Color marrone scurissimo con venature rubino, schouma color nocciola, abbondante ma grossolana e di scarsa tenuta. Al naso note intense di torrefatto, caff? in chicchi e fave di cacao. Scaldandosi vengono fuori le note erbacee e sul finale terrose. In bocca si ripetono nello stesso ordine e intesit?, sul finale prevale l’amaro erbaceo. Corpo leggero e carbonazione spinta.

1 Pint at a restaurant in Niagara On The Falls. Pitch black in the glass, small head. Choco and dark malt on the nose. Taste starts with a lot of choco and roasted malt. Hints of vanilla. Smooth. Increasing choco in the second part. Decent hop in the background but present. Really nice. Listigovers (1205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2017
Black beer with lots of foam. Smells like a roast coffee. Nice light body but lots of Coco and coffee in the flavour, refreshing and smooth, no nutty flavor that I often dont like in schwarzbier. Nice. yespr (45906) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2017

Bottle from the brewery.

Light sweet molasses with a more pronounced chocolate bitterness with lots of roast and hints of smoke. Mouth is medium with a nice dry finish and average carbonation. Quite enjoyable.
