COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A stout brewed with English yeast, German malts and Swiss hops. Blackbier was awarded the silver medal at the European Beer Star awards 2007 & gold in 2009 for the Dry Stout category. It is heavier and sweeter than most dry stouts. Typically, roast and chocolate malt aromas dominate…maybe a hint of coffee? With a full and smooth mouth feel, the strong hop and roast malt bitterness is balanced by rich malt sweetness. Three different roast malts combined with a pilsner malt base result in a complex, black beer. The finish is long and roasty but not harsh.

330 ml bottle, a gift. ABV is 4.6%. Black colour,moderate to low tan head. Typical dry stout aroma of coffee, wood and liquorice. Medium dry flavour, coffee and some wood, a little hops in the finish. One-dimensional, but nice enough to drink.

.5L bottle from brewery, also tried draft at the brewery. Pours opaque brown-black with thin brown head that fades quickly. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and toast with faint earth and citrus. Medium body, texture is on the thin side. Some citrus bitterness - more present in the bottle than the tap.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 21, 2011
Draught at brewery. Pours black, with a thin tan head and some lacing. Smells of subtle chocolate, coffee and malt. Tastes of unsweetened chocolate maltiness. Slight underlying bitterness which seems to not match the rest of the flavors, and sticks out. Very smooth, medium bodied, finishes dry.

animymous (1) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 24, 2011 does not count
Rich dark toasted malts with a hint of licorice, smooth in the mouth, medium/gentle carbonation. The best black stout I have found; I can understand how it won a European Beer Star gold medal in 2009.

Black color; huge bronish head. Nice aroma, mild coffee, roasted malt, caramel, cardboard. Medium bodied, the mouthfeel is quite smooth, with a mild (very appreciated) roasted malt flavor, some caramel, light liquorice, and a milky feeling too. Good Schwarz, well brewed.

[Bottled. Thanks to omhper] Dark brown colour. Huge pale brown head. Rich, toasty chocolatey nose with notes of mushrooms. Mushrooms are there in flavour as well, along with pale chocolate or cocoa. Very dry beer. Solid tasty beer.
