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.

rulas3 (107) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 20, 2012
Apariencia: color negro oscuro pero no completamente opaco, ligeros reflejos rojizos, mucho poso. Corona escasa, color beige claro. Carbónico escaso. Aroma: intensidad media, muy curioso y complejo, es seco, predomina el humo, toques florales, me recuerda a la miel cuando se solidifica (sé que suena un poco raruno) Sabor: cuerpo medio, bastante complejo, se nota el toque ahumado pero no tanto como era de esperar, seco, muchos furtos secos, avellanas, nueces, notas de madera, torrefactos. Alcohol bien integrado. cerveza muy original, muy bien hecha, equilibrada, pero sorprendente y muy fácil de beber, lo que la convierte en una birra bastante interesante.

mike_77 (3119) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2012
Very dark brown colour. Light roast malt aroma and hint of liquorice. Creamy, malty taste. Hints of treacle, cocoa, coffee and smoke. Overall balance is quite light and drinkable.

Grima (2098) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2012
Into the glass pours a deep black beer, which does not transmit light. The head is creamy fine. Sweet smells of chocolate, overall very malty, with some caramel and liquorice in the background. Starts with lots of roasted coffee and chocolate, with lots of dark malts and licorice. The middle part is slightly yeasty, again with lots of chocolate and coffee flavor. Goes into a slight hoppy finish, slightly yeasty, with a lot of coffee and chocolate!

JohnRMurdoch (3281) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Very dark brown colour, not much head. Sour grassy liquorice aroma. Dry fruity nutty malt flavour, Sweet & sour aftertaste. Not a bad beer but not really my thing.
