COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopfen: Magnum, Saphir Malz: Münchner, Karamell-, Röstmalz Darkon is inspired by traditional recipes. Nothing but dark malts, are used to create the characteristically mild roasted aromas of bitter chocolate and toffee. Darkon besinnt sich auf die traditionelle Herstellung der Schwarzbiere und wird ausschließlich mit dunklen Malzen gebraut. Für milde Röstaromen wird ein Teil des Malzes im Trommelröstverfahren hergestellt.

PalCabral (156) - - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours black with some rare red hints and the nice beige layer of scum. Malty roasted aroma, not so strong, maybe some dark chocolate or cacau. The taste malty, more roasted malts with some backing bitterness more likely coming from the use of schwartzmalz rather than hops. The texture is very smooth and the carb low, and I think I would guess this would be a stout in a blind test. I am not overly fond of this beer type, I think it is one of those you should drink in situ to really enjoy, but it is a nice example of the type. Would prefer more bubbles in it, the flatness of it makes it tiresome in the long run.

Satyroneto (282) - BRAZIL - MAY 21, 2016
Cor marrom café com espuma bege de média formação e persistência de um fino anel com lacing razoável de permanência fulgaz. Aroma de café, chocolate e baunilha. Sabor inicial de café com final torrado que se torna mais intenso no retrogosto, onde surge também um sabor amadeirado persistente. Encorpada com carbonatação média/alta, sendo refrescante e de boa drinkability para uma Schwarzbier.
