lundy (47) - - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle from Coop, also commonly available in Zurich bars. Pours opaque with a creamy light-brown head. Chocolate, molasses, and roasted malt aroma, similar flavor. Taste is lightly bitter chocolate and coffee. Aftertaste also bitter, but very faint. Light to medium body. Alcohol is well-concealed. This is a nice drinkable schwarzbier, but for me it’s too conservative in just about every dimension. A bit more bitterness and body would go a long way.

Dogbrick (9614) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle at Brasserie Fédéral in Zürich. This brew pours black with a thick light brown head recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is very roasty with notes of coffee and malt, along with some hops in the background. Medium body with a strong roasted coffee character and notes of sweet malt, hops and a touch of anise. The finish is brown sugar and coffee. Pretty good all around.

Koelschtrinker (13105) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Dunkler süßer Antrunk mit wenig herben Beinoten. Die leichte Muffigkeit, die im Mittelteil aufkommt verschwindet direkt wieder, zum Ende ist eine seichte Säurenote erkennbar, die aber ins Gesamtbild passt. Vorwiegend bleibt das Bier süß und karamellmalzig. Ausgewogen, vollmundig – rundum gelungen. 8/11/9/9/11/9
