Brown 33ml bottle, 5.1%, bought at green week, Berlin.

Poured into its own breweries vase type glass, it looks the business. Very dark, even for a schwarzbier, its head, which is cream in colour soon goes to just a rim around the glass.

Malty, dark chocolate and burnt caramel is the aroma that I detect.

Malts, chocolate malts and molasses give the typical taste of this style.

The flavours stay for longer than some schwarzbiers, a burnt caramel overides everything else, very pleasant.

This is an OK beer, try it if you see it, I will give it another go, if I ever see it on tap.

This beer pours a dark black/ruby colour with a minimal head and enough carbonation for the style.
Smell was dark malt, like chocolate or any other dark roasted malt, some molasses and candy sugar and also some oak in there. This is probably not something that has been added to the beer, but the dryness and adstringency reminds me of some whiskeys that had this distinct oak or peat smells.
Taste was molasses and rather mild, so no maltbitter or sharpness of the dark malts. There was a vegetable and somewhat 'óily'' taste to the beer, which was not very disturbing. The beer was easy to drink, comparable to a lager, but with the extra depth of the dark malts. Off course the benchmark for all Schwarzbiers is Köstrizer, and when I compare that one with this one, this is less clean and has some more molasses tastes which slightly interfere with drinkability.
