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.

Christian (11319) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2012
Odense spring time specialties night at Dolle. Dark brown with a small off-white head. Grainy malt aroma with some toffee notes and yeasty phenols. Dry malty flavour with some biscuit and a mild roasted note, and a good hoppy finish

skortila (4648) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2012
The aroma has caramel, sweetness, hint of rye, hint of roast. Clear, brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweetish, light bitter, has caramel, some chocolate, some spice. Nice.

BeerViking (2768) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2012
33cl bottle, pours very dark brown with a thin lacy head, nice coffee, vanilla and tart red fruit nose, then a roast and dry coffee-malt body, with some plummy fruit, plus faint hints of dried hazelnuts and oak. It’s followed by a long dry vanilla and astringent bitter finish - the excessive and lasting sharpness of the latter is the beer’s only failing for me.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle at home. Dark mahogany brown, thick airy beige head fades with some lacing. Nice soft salty smoked nose, some chocolate, some rye, some soft lager notes too. Palate is surprisingly sweet up-front, with notes of caramel, vanilla, rye, some liquorice, subtle smoke - nowhere near as smoky as I thought it would be! Soft roast malts on the finish with just a hint of peppery hops. This is nice!

sebletitje (6969) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2012
33cl from DeMolen biershop. Brune claire, col crémeux léger café au lait. Arôme a un très beau bouquet malté avec des notes de houblon fleuri. A noter cette légère note rappelant une farine de noisette. En bouche,profile léger allant plus vers le malt cara/grillé sur une pointe de chocolat. Le tout ayant un léger côté fruité et houblonné voire citronné laissant une amertume moyenne se diffuser avec le malt. Le profile reste néanmoins à l’avantage du malt avec sous couvert juste une pointe de ce houblon tchèque. Au final, une bière qui reste en retrait de l’idée que je me fais en général d’une Schwarz allemande mais qui reste plus que convenable.

lusikka (6603) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
330 ml bottle. Bottled 17.11.2011.
Pours a brown colour with a small white creamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, tar and rye bread. Flavour of roasted malts, grassy hops, grains, rye bread, chocolate and light smokiness. Medium bodied, harsh mouthfeel and a mouth-drying finish of very dry roasted malts and hay. Quite rough and grainy, but has some interesting elements.
