One of my favorite styles, though this is almost a stout. Creamy with lots of chocolate and coffee, yet still refreshing. Tasty beer bought at Drinks of the World in Zürich.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Black-colored with a light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roastiness, a bit of licorice notes and faint alcohol note. Bittersweet roasty flavor with coffee, some dark chocolate and a slightly bitter and slightly burnt finish. Medium-bodied. Nice, kind of a Stout-ish Schwarzbier.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Having moved from Seattle, (5 blocks away from Naked City tap and brew house) to Switzerland 7 months ago, I am delighted to have stumbled onto this extremely delightful bier. I thought my bier drinking days were over when I came to the land of pale yellow fizzy water.
This bier is the perfect combination of every thing I love about Stouts, Porters and Dark Ales and Lagers. The only thing is it does not have much head retention which I find makes a bier more attractive to me.
I like it because it has low carbonation, and low but not missing hop flavor, (maybe dry hopped), also was the mellow coffee flavor and not a burnt coffee like in many Porters, I’d have to say it’s a lower carbonated, fuller bodied Kona Pipeline Porter.

33cl bottle. -- Very dark with creamy brown head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, coffee. Flavor is rather sweet, caramel, caffeeish, even chocolaty. Well bodied, smooth creamy mouthfeel. In a strange way a bit artificial.
