Light sweet flavor, bready and toasty malts, milk chocolate, mild earth. Light bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Milk chocolate on the finish, more toasty brown bread. Very well rounded.

dutchbeerpages (1470) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2013
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.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 14, 2013
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.

Iheartdarkbier (1) - Chur, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2013 does not count
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.
