COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.
14.9 ºP / EBC 113 / 35EBU
Pale, Cara, Chocolate malts & Roasted barley. Sladek & Saaz hops.

dutchtuga (135) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2012
Again a fantastic De Molen beer! It has all the rich flavours from a good stout, but still manages to be a very friendly and refreshing beer to drink. Nice soft touches of chocolate, caramel and coffee.

Botella de 330ml (Embotellada en Nov´11, Saboreada en Ene´14). Color negro intenso y tintes rubí oscuro a contraluz.

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.

Countbeer (4424) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2011
Draught: Medium vast light tan/creamy head on top of a black colored beer. Smell coffee, roasted malts, chewing gum, herbs and other darker ingredients. Taste is nice bitter with hints of roasted malts, light coffee, toasted barleys, roasted herbs. Tasty but not to complex. Medium bitter light toasted/roasted malty/herby aftertaste. Low carbo, tingly mouthfeel, medium to full body and a light creamy texture. Very nice beer, tasty. More like some kind of stout than a schwarzbier.

AshtonMcCobb (2542) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2012
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.

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.

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.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 13, 2011
Black bodied with creamy tan head. Roasted malts, little smoke and spices. Bitter aroma, fairly full flavoured and a long dry aftertaste from the hops that, well, weren’t meant to be there. Nice mistake.

from Erzbierschof - hazy dark brown beer under a persistent beige foam; toasted aroma of ashes and chocolate, the whole thing being a bit restrained; medium-bodied, moderate carbonation and rounded palate; quite dry and bitter; long toasted aftertaste of licorice and ashes
