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.

pintbypint (3327) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 4, 2012
330ml brown bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Deep dark brown pour, a hint of red showing through. Thin layer of beige head with mild lacing. Nose is roasty, slightly earthy, some chocolate. In the mouth the beer is roasty with dark chocolate notes, background fruitiness and caramel. Finishes with some rich cocoa-y notes, some roasted bitterness and a bit of sharper grassy hop. Medium body with medium carbonation. Not a text book schwarzbier but enjoyable.
