3.58/5  rDev -4%

The beer poured a black and was nearly opaque with a light tan head that left little lace.

High malt aroma with a hint of hops. It had a sweet fruity smell.

The taste was very balanced with just a hint of malt. No hops on the tongue. Finished a little malty.

The mouthfeel was a disappointment because it was medium light.

This was a good black beer but is by no means the best.

Best before 18-03-05. Poors in with huge and thick lasting foam thats yellow collored with a brown touch. Beercollor is almost black with bordeaux shine and totaly clear.
Nose is sweet, with lots of malthints going from munich/pale to a roastmalt( without the usual bitterness though( cristal?)).
Taste is sweet, malty, litle oxidised but still fresh mostly cause there seems to be a lemon/lime arome with it. Aftertaste misses litle bitterness but is clean and sweet. The thickness opf the brew makes mouthfeel ok but it misses some bitterness( in my opinion). Drinks easy but sweetness is so big that for me this 0.5l botle was enough. Good beer especially for sombody who likes it sweet and without to much bitterness.

Poured from a bottle while in the Stuttgart area. This is a nice dark brownish black color. Smells are predominantly caramel and graham cracker. Tastes are light and sweet with more caramel and graham cracker and maybe some marshmallow. Very light bodied and light alcohol. Easy to drink and tasty.

3.68/5  rDev -1.3%

Poured from a .5L swing top to a beer glass the liquid id close to black with a 2 finger light mocha head.

The smell is mildly roasty with a fresh hopes aroma.

The taste is good mild roasty flavor gives way to a mild hopy finish. Light notes of chocolate and light roast coffee as well as a nutty after taste.

The mouthfeel is good a classic black lager medium body and good carbonation.

The drinkability is good not the best Schwartz brew I know but good in a pinch. As I sit here in Heidelberg sampling what I could find this first week of a good long stay bier wise it can only get better.

Prosit, MK

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a dark chestnut amber with a one finger light tan head that dissipated fairly quickly to a ring around the glass with wispy lacing. Aroma of sweet toasted malt, molasses, light nuts and a hint of hops. Flavor follows with toasted malt, a slight nuttiness, rye bread, finishes slightly dry with light grassy hops, faintly metallic. Light bodied with nice carbonation. The flavor is subdued, but very nicely balanced. Flavors are good enough that they make me want a slightly more intense version. Still nice schwarzbier that popped up in our market and is apparently a one time only arrival. I'll have it again if it shows up.

3.83/5  rDev +2.7%

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A nice two finger head was poured into the glass. The head has reduced a little bit and left some frothy lacing on the glass. It is a dark brown black color with a little bit of vision when held up to a light.

Smell: Caramel, toffee, chocolate, bready malts, a little lager yeast, and noble grassy hops.

Taste: Caramel, toffee, chocolate, bready malts, lager yeastiness, mild hop bitterness, a little roastiness, and molasses.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, a little water, medium carbonation, crisp, refreshing, and a bit smooth.

Overall Pretty cool schwarzbier that I have never seen before. Found it in JP and figured I really don't have much to lose. I could enjoy more of these in the future.

Das Schwarze produces a rich amount of light tan and creamy looking head. The body is black, but reddish hues are easily detectable in natural light.

The aroma is sweet and smells a little copperish like a jar full of pennies.

The taste is a little smokier than I thought. Immediately the taste is a little sweet, but does give way to this smoky taste.

This brew is light in alcohol but full in body. Definitely this is good to go with venison or some smoked cheddar.

Pours dark brown with a tan foam head. No lace.

Some nice malt aromas, a little cocoa and nuts, a touch of molasses. Not a strong aroma though.

Nice roasted malt, with a little cocoa, no charred or burnt notes. Molasses essence, meaning flavor but not sweet, and maybe some nuts. Mildly bitter. Long pleasant roasted malt finish. A slight sour note in there somewhere. It all works.

A little acidic, mildly carbonated.

Nice version of the style. Drinkable and multi-layered. A very soft beer. Smooth. Worth trying.
