Beautiful dark beer smelling deliciously of coffee, and having all of the good taste of coffee with none of the bad. Not too bitter, not to sweet, a very enjoyable surprise.

Black color. Mild aroma of roasted malt and cardboard. The flavor of roasted malt and dry chocolate is actually better than expected, with a caramelly backbone and good bitterness level; light residual sweetness in the final, with also some roasted nuts.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2012 Bottle. Brown- Black. No head. Caramel raisin aromas dominate. Dry to slight bitter. Rather short finish. Not bad prefer more carbonation even though the style is stout-like.

Bottle @ joes. Very dark brown with some orange colour shining through. Smells smoked, mostly coffee and some dark chocolate. Tastes pretty much like coffee, some malts, some chocolate and some hops. Medium body, great soft carbo.

In bottle at home. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, coffee, caramel and alcohol. Similar roasty flavours with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter with lingering burnt toast and chocolate characters. Alcohol is well balanced.

33cl bottle. Pours chestnut brown with a red hue and a nice creamy fawn coloured head. The nose has creamy chocolate. The taste has chocolate and nuts. The palate has a medium body and a nice creamy texture with quite a dry and elegant finish. Overall, a very creamy schwarzbier, it’s good.
