COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stilbeschreibung: Das klassische Schwarzbier hat seinen Ursprung in Thüringen und Braunschweig. Ein außergewöhnlich dunkles, untergäriges Bier mit markantem Bitterschokoladengeschmack. Es diente auch als Vorbild für die in Japan produzierten Schwarzbiere. Doch die schwarze Bierspezialität droht als Randsorte unterzugehen. Der Brauvorgang ist sehr kompliziert und der Einfachheit halber wird oft ein hoher Anteil heller Malze verwendet, was auf Kosten des Aromas geht. Zudem wird durch die hohe Vergärung das Bier zu trocken Besonderheiten: Darkon besinnt sich auf die traditionellen Rezepturen. So werden hier noch tatsächlich und ausschließlich dunkle Malze eingesetzt, um die typischen milden Röstaromen nach Bitterschokolade und Toffee zu generieren Verkostungsnotiz: Schwarzbraun mit goldenem Rand und mittlerer Schaumbildung. Duftet nach Malz und Schokolade, leicht geräuchert und verwegen nach Sattelleder. Zeigt ein unaufdringliches Mousseux und ein erstaunlich kräuteriges Aroma im Geschmack, unterlegt von einer hefigen Komponente. Ein sehr offenherziger Typ. Die Bitternoten tragen lange.

330 ml bottle. Clear, deep amber body with a nice, dense beige head. Rather mild in aroma, mainly malty. Flavor is a bit sweet, light, clean, soft malt. Not much bitterness. A pleasant and really balanced version of a Schwarzbier, nice and no nonsense.

BeerViking (2940) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Dark brown, thin lasting head, nose is plummy and a little cocoa, sweetish with a faint tartness, roasty plum notes, a touch of liquorice, and a little ashiness. A well made Schwarz.
