Decent beer. After trying their pilsner, I did not have much hope for this Schwarzbier. Pours an expected dark brown / black, nearly opaque color with lightened edges. Smells softly of pale and black malts. No real hop detection. Tastes simple and clean with the same pale malt soft sweetness and the medium roasted / charcoal flavor. Again, relying of the roasted grains for bittering rather than noticable hops. Quite clean and crisp in the finish with a light chalkiness and fleeting flavor. Leaving behind a subtle black malt character.

On tap in St Petersburg.

Served very dark with a small light tan head. Quite smooth; mouthfeel is nice; aided well by the malts. Hop balance is good with just a very little bit of bitter. There is a light hint of toasty too. A very decent dark beer.

Ha! - actually forgot I had this one in the fridge. I had to think about where I got it too??? Must have carried this one back from Europe back in June '03. 0.33L bottle. Pours a rich tawny brown color. Very nice looking brew. Head is tan and steady. Aroma is roasted grains and coffee. Taste combines the elements of the aroma with some burnt caramel and unsweetened dark chocolate. Wow, this is creamy and delicious. At 3.8% abv this is very drinkable too. Bursting with flavor, a mighty tasty brew. A nice treat hiding in the back of the fridge.

half liter on tap poured into a mug at romer plaza in frankfurt am main, germany. pours black with garnet highlights and a single finger of light brown head that remains for a few minutes.

aroma is of roasted malts, with notes of caramel and chocolate and a distant note of coffee as well.

taste is mild and roasted, with the same malt notes as the aroma and a bit more character and richness than the aroma would suggest.

mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a silky texture and a smooth finish of lingering roasted malts.

drinkability is great. a tight profile and solid complexity make this one an excellent schwarzbier. prost!

This brew poured a dark brown with a thick tan head which lasted a while. Malty aromas, some roasted some not, with a spicy note. The taste was more of the same, very noticeable roasted, chocolatey malt with just the lightest hop profile at the end. Very light on the mouth, but full of flavor with a good balance between the classic schwarzbier body and taste. Easy to drink in session and very refreshing.

If you like your beer a bit on the dark side, this is the perfect beer for a light fish or salad course.

It poured a chocolate brown with a thick, impressive tan head which left a ring-like lace on my glass.

The smell was sweet with a miniscule amount of hops.

The taste was light at the front of my tongue but got more pronounced once swallowed. Vanilla, coffee and chocolate quickly come and go.

I want more.
