COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes things go wrong at a brewery. While brewing our Donder & Bliksem a mistake was made and we added a lot of malts that weren’t suppose to go in this brew. This is how our Bohemian Lager turned into a Schwarzbier. As you see, we turn our Difficulties into a Virtue.
14.9 ºP / EBC 113 / 35EBU
Pale, Cara, Chocolate malts & Roasted barley. Sladek & Saaz hops.

Opaque dark brown beer, big fluffy pale tan head. Light dry palate with mild minerally crispness. Dry malt, vague roast and a little spice. Whisper of unsweet caramel. Dry spicy finish. It’s a little dry and flirts with dull.
