To me it’s more a dark lager than a schwartzbier. Very dark, lots of roasted character but still lets the hops through. Refreshing for a dark beer like this. NIce aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 50 cl) "Hell" was a pale beer so this "Heaven" s’gotta be black? Somehow I would’ve expected things the other way around. Anyways, this really is pitch black with a small light brown head. Dry and bitter with a lovely hoppy aroma and an almost absent sweetness. A bit too ashy for my liking. 260405

Poured a reddish mahogany color with a thin, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoke, caramel, and roasted malts. Chocolate, light roast, toffee, some citrus hoppiness, and a light bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. Hoppy, very dusty aroma. Also fruity, roasted malts. Almost black colour with a red hue. Small unstable, light brown head. Very malty and quite roasted flavour, but still mild. Aftertaste has some roasted barley bitterness. Quite nice, semi-smooth mouthfeel.
