UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Aroma fairly subtle malt. Nice dark color with good head. Very nice strong malt flavor with the barest hint of molasses/treacle - very little sweetness. Very full palate. Next to no bitterness. An extremely good Schwarzbier. (Drank from bottle at Wuerzburg Hofbrau so this was extremely fresh). pivnizub (10730) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle: ruby-amber coloured, smaller stable off-white foamy layer, sweetish - light to moderate - roasty to dark-malty nose; light to moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour, almost medium bodied and soft; sweetish fruity and dark-malty finish. A pleasant Schwarzbier... leaparsons (10657) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2006
Bottle. Almost black with a beige head. Aromas are light chocolate with sweet coffee. Malty with sweet mollasses and metal hints. Flavours are light chocolate malts with a smoky roast character. Has spices, cola and liquorice. Also has hints of curry (strangely). Addictive salt towards the finish. Quite light in flavour but a lot going on. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2010
It’s black-red with a creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of earthy malt, caramel, light licorice and syrup. The flavour is moderately sweet with notes of earthy malt, light licorice and ryebread, and the finish is dry. MoritzF (10018) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2008
(bottle) Pitch black coloured hue with a thick and slowly lacing beige foamy head. Light-sweet, delicately roasted malty aroma, slightly leafy with notes of chocolate, coffee and a shy whiff of herbal hops. Light-bitter flavour with shades of acidity, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Roast-malty taste with chocolate, liquorice and traces of coffee; quite dry and moderately roasty, slightly bitter finish (12.05.08).

bottle, delivered by pivnizub! Deep brown, almost black, with a creamy beige head. Dry malty base, roasted malts, coffee, shy hints of caramel. Erzengel (9083) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2014
Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-malzig, leicht röstmalzig-herb, vor allem zum Mittelteil werdend. Insgesamt aber eher etwas flacher. Die Röstmalztöne bleiben doch etwas im Hintergrund, auch die herbe Note könnte ausgeprägter sein. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine leicht-malzig-röstmalzige Note. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2006
--> Netter Versuch, aber für ein gutes Schwarzbier viel zu flach. Die Aromenkomposition gefällt mir – müsste aber um einiges intensiver sein!
Test vom 18.7.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,8,10,8,12,9 - 9,30
Bottled. A black coloured lager with a nice white head which lasts a fair amount of time. The aroma is malty and a touch sweet. A little light roastiness also. The taste is quite roasty, and there is a little bit of chocolate. Quite stout-like in many ways. Drinkable and tasty. A decent schwarzbier. downender (8740) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2007
Bottle. Near black with a slight tan head. Strong aroma of dark chocolate and violets with roasted notes. Very smooth in the mouth with dark fruits, more chocolate and a decent dry finish. Very good. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 3, 2007
