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.

Hansen (8092) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2012
Dark brown coloured and hazy. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Aroma is heavy, some "fatty" notes of caramel, some light chocolate and faint roasted. Flavor starts moderate sweet, finish moderate to heavy bitter. Perhaps a note of acidic. Creamy texture and dry.

sarauckelman (307) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2012
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.

Japalo (1545) - DENMARK - MAY 25, 2012
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.

Draft. Dark brown pour with a thin frothy tan head. Full dark blended flavors. Bit of malty sweetness but finishes dry. Tobacco. Coffee grounds. Charcoal. Dark juicy red fruit. Delightful.

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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2012
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.
