Our Reserve Special Black Bier is a full bodied ale. Each batch is brewed with heavy roasted and chocolate malts to give this beer its unique flavors of coffee and chocolate. The color of this beer is black, and when pured into a glass it will have a deep brown head of foam.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. OK I guess, but nothing outstanding. I expected more from the pitch trying to sell this beer as something unique.

Maarten1993 (1007) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2016
Drank 22-3-2016 while writing in my diary. The beer is quite bitter, but has a good body. The aftertaste is somewhat thick, more balanced and rich.

AnG_BrgNor (534) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2016
Aromas of roasted and some coffee. A little weak aroma compared to the taste. Taste is heavy roasted, close to smoked and some coffee. Nice bitterness. A nice porter!

Good. Something a little funky in the aftertaste but it kind of grows on you as you drink it.

leghorn99 (239) - Livorno, ITALY - FEB 28, 2016
Il nome non tradisce quanto appare nel bicchiere: infatti, si veste completamente di nero, come una notte senza luna nel profondo di una grotta; una bella schiuma compatta, cremosa, di color marroncino e dall’ammirevole persistenza ci fa compagnia. L’aroma è interessante: malto tostato, caffè, cioccolato, un leggero tocco piccante e note erbacee di luppolo. In bocca esprime una discreta intensità: si chiamano subito presenti amaro ed acidità da caffè, a seguire malti tostati, liquirizia ed anice. Luppolo che fornisce ulteriore amaro, decisa carbonazione, finale asciutto, corpo medio-pieno.
