A beer with a nice dark brown color. Slightly malty flavor and mild, palatable taste. Very good foaming. The deep dark lager Bamberger Schwärzla builds on the more than 450 years of brewing tradition of the Prince Bishop brown ale house. The malzblumige black beer acts on the crook of the beer friend supple slender and attractive mild.

    From a dark bottle is surprised by dispensing beer, a stout black which gives us a nice creamy coffee-colored. the smell, it has aromas of smoke spread very quickly in the tasting. a grain well smoked aromas of wood. she has a good char and especially in the mouth there is a pleasant bitterness that crowns the whole.

    500 ml swing-top bottle bought at the brewery. Poured in the original Klosterbräu glass a "clear" dark brown-red coloured Schwarzbier with a two fingers tan creamy foamy head that had a very long retention and tons of micro bubbles. Active carbonation. Superb lacing. The aroma is roasted malts, dark bitter chocolate, notes of smoked ham. The flavour is deep roasted malts, burned coffee beans, dark bitter chocolate, nice grassy bitterness. The mouthfeel is full and very smooth. This medium to full bodied Schwarzbier has a long roasted malts finish. A very pleasant Schwarzbier from the oldest brewery in the beer-city of Bamberg.

    Fränken Bierausflug, Day#4, Brewery#17, Beer#36. requested a "Schnitt" of this, vom faß at the brewery, and it was cheerfully provided. Seems I filled up on Gerupfter mit Brot... The beer was a deep brown with ruby highlights and a thin tad head with little lacing. Rich aroma of well-roasted malt and chocolate. Mouthfeel is full and flavors are sweet at first, but the palate thins and bitters rapidly. Roasted malt flavors with a hint of chocolate and smoke; quite bitter. The finish is thin and listless. I'd like to try their Christmas Schwarzla Bock.

    Drank this one in Bamburg at the Kloster. Black, and deep malt aroma. Bottle was wire sprung and when poped, rotated on the wire for a full 15 seconds.Very fresh, with hints of licorice, roasted malt, and a slightly bitter finish. One of, it not THE best Schwarzbier I have had the pleasure to know. Grand old place, it is a must to visit.

    Bottle. Great looking beer, very dark brown with a large beige head. Roasted notes in the aroma with some caramel. Roasted and quite sweet flavour with some caramel and possibly licorice. Nicely balanced sweet and bitter. Light mouthfeel, very drinkable. A very good schwarz beer.
