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.

jfb (4628) - Freising, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2015
(bottle) black in colour with a creamy light-brown head. aroma of brown sugar, some roasted malts and hazenuts, quite ashy, with a very light touch of caramel and vanilla. flavour is mostly the same, roasted malts, ash and dark chocolate, slightly oxidized and metallic, with a touch of sugar icing, yeast and a light roasted-bitter finish. light- to medium-bodied with average carbonation.

SinH4 (1138) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 22, 2015
Brown color with small tan head. Aroma of coffee, a bit of fruits, chalk. Taste is weirdly balanced towards fruitiness and chalkiness. Not as watery as many stouts. Okay, but does not live up to Bier Factory’s standards.

17Beer (117) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Malt licorice aroma. Pours dark impenetrable black with a tiny tan head. Tastes of chalk and pumpernickel and coffee. Flat mouthfeel. Sour long finish. Well made but I expected more.

King_Alex_II (676) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 26, 2015
Pitch black with little light brown foam. The smell is roasty with a little coffee. The taste is a bit watery but quite roasty as well. Nice matching carbonation and a solid aftertaste. A good stout, but I don?t favor the style very much.

AdiBeer (2229) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Aroma: toasted malts, chocolate, light coffee. Appearance: black, medium, creamy, beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: intense toasted malts, chocolate and coffee again, almost gets slightly sweet, fully body but quite short duration, soft carbonation. Overall: decent Stout, but nothing too extraordinary. Bottle from Drinks of the World, Zurich HB.

Sigmund (5803) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
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.
