Picked up this 500ml bottle while in Berlin: opened at home on 16 Mar 2013. Poured into a Veltin's stemmed tulip glass twice.

Really deep ruby red body when held up to a light source: otherwise a dirty black/brown. The head tried hanging around: it starts off big and bold but the tanned bubbles turn into a wisp and collar half way down the glass each time.

Roasted malts all the way in the nose: almost burnt malts in fact.

The taste is also all malt: roasted/toasted with a smoked Ham joint in the kettle with the brew. Molasses from those malts give it a sweet feel, as if the Ham has a toffee and caramel coating. As the beer warmed a little chocolate and nut flavours appeared along side the toffee and caramel coated smoked Ham: most enjoyable, if a bit sweet and lacking in true body depth and strenght.

One of the better Scwarzbier I've had so far.

Deep brown, reddish color (black if no backlighting) with a medium sized beige head. Sweet toasted malty caramel aroma. Good mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, toasted malt and caramel, Medium bitterness, pleasant. Sweet malty finish. Almost reminds me of a Dutch Oud.
