This lovely looking beer was poured from the tap at the breweries stall/bar within Berlin's Green Week on 18th Jan 2014.

Green Week is a showcase of food and drink with many countries and each German State having bars to try their beers etc, etc (plus other stuff): hence I had 28 different beers in one day.

Black as you'd expect this is one of the better Schwarzbier around, it has a good malt presence and although not rich or smooth it does have more body and depth than most I've tried. It also made a pleasant change to the light Pilsners I had before and after it.

The aroma and taste give a mild smoky, deep malty and dark fruit character to the brew: worth finding.

A: Pour is pitch black with a small tank head that leaves fantastic lacings after a little while.

S: Hard roasted malts, semi-sweet. Dark dried fruits and smoked ham.

T: Hard roasted malt. Rather dry. Chocolate and smoked ham. Bitter hops.

M: Aftertaste lingers with a dry bitterness. Body is medium and carbonation the same.

O: A supermarket-Schwarzbier that's actually rather nice.

A full half liter was the perfect ending to a day of shopping in Berlin. Black, like all schwarz beers but also light in mouthfeel and great for an afternoon beer of relaxing. Great carbonation, color, flavor and overall drinkability. I would recommend this beer if you can find it.

Best before 07-2005. Pours out ok, but without a great head and is not that stable either. Biercolor is black with a red shine.
Smell is malty, sweet, litle burnt, hops and litle yeastfruit. Alltogether a fine, harmonic & aromromatic nose that promises a lot for the taste.
Taste is sweetmalty, fruity, burnt and full for its 4.8%ABV. Fresh alltoghether before getting into a clean bitternes from mainly hops but with litle finesse from the roast. Good beer that I'll buy again.

500 ml bottle, bought in Bier Spezi Hamburg. Very dark brown colour, nearly black. Large and lingering greyish tan head, nice lacing. Pleasant moderately roasty aroma, also notes of dark fruits, chocolate, Schwarzbrot and coffee. Very nice flavour of roasted malts perfectly balanced with the hops, not too sweet, notes of coffee. Moderate roasty aftertaste which lasts "forever". A very good Schwarzbier!

I was studying abroad in Dresden when I first had this beer. Though somewhat new to beer, this particular brew struck me as pretty darn good. Not the greatest beer in Germany, or even the greatest beer in Dresden, but a finely crafted piece.

It has a good, dark appearance that makes Schwarzbier enjoyable visually, and combines this with an easy drinkability.
I recommend trying this beer.
