Stadtbrauerei Schwarzenberg Dunkles
,5l glass for €3,80 at the brewpub on 3 January 2014

Notes: Typical dunkel in appearance with better than average head retention and lacing. Aroma of grainy, dark caramelish malts with a bit of dark fudge and just a hint of floral and grassy hops in the background. The flavor is wider, and a bit sweetish, with golden caramel, darker caramel, a light touch of toast and nuts, and a hint of dark chocolate. In the end it still finishes fairly dry with some underlying spicy hops. Medium bodied and moderately crisp. Smooth and accessible.

(From notes)

A - Two fingers of slightly off-white, nearly tan head. Coppery brown color, with hints of burnt orange around the edges.

S - Little bit of sweet malts, raisiny and green apples

T - Dry raisiny maltiness, and a little yeasty. Touch of toffee, and overall pretty basic but very nice in the taste.

M - Lighter MF, subdued carbonation and a pretty dry finish for the style

D - Would consider this very sessionable, and my sample disappeared pretty quickly. Def. good drinkability.

Overall, very traditional example of the style and pretty pleasant. Interesting, but not nearly that complex. Nice stuff, and check it out if you find yourself at the brewpub.

Sampled at the brewpub in late December, it came out a dark cola brown that seemed clear but was hard to decipher due to the darkness of the pub and the darkness of the brew. The tan head starts at 1.5 fingers, fading slowly while leaving sheets of lace almost covering all walls of the mug. The nose is strong of sweet caramel. The mouth is light and quite prickly. This is a solid product with lots of candy sweet caramel followed by a healthy dose of crisp bitterness including a hint of espresso that lingers at the back of the throat. The aftertaste definitely highlights the bitter, but the caramel sweetness never disappears. A nice, smooth quaffer.
