Black body with light brown tiny head, that quickly diminishes and leaves a few patches on top. Charcoal, exhaust fumes, liquorice and hints of coffee. It’s like a city morning. Roasted malt, anise, dark fruits and some smoke. As always I love the design! 330ml bottle from my local supermarket. Enjoyed@home (14.May 2013)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of BrewDogs best brews. No soap flavor in this but plenty of malt and balanced bitterness. Best schwarzbier I had drunk from a non-German brewery!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black. Aroma: Coffee, licorice, slightly hoppy, roast and caramel. Taste: Way roastier. Coffee, licorice, bready and earthy. A pretty dry palate. I was so happy when I stumbled upon this one, because I felt BrewDog really needed something darker in their core lineup. This is right down that path and it does it well. Sessionable.

Thin scent. The taste is really good. The aftertaste is also good but disappears too fast I think. Recommend this beer anyway.

A very comfortable beer. Best after a tasty roast beef of lamb, or such, to even things out. Altogether soft and easy, still with a full body. This time I had it right after BrewDogs Hardcore IPA, and the difference could not be greater.
Denne ölen er perfekt til å drikke imens man venter på deserten. Go fyllnad og fin balance. Rekommenderes sterkt.
