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.

Bottle at Bruce’s. It pours near black with a thick tan head. The nose is roasty, cocoa, earth, milk chocolate, lactose and wood. The taste is roasted malt, earth, toasted caramel, dark fruit, coffee, earth, plum and spice with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Smooth, well-integrated and pretty tasty.

Big thanks to Allen for this one. Bottle looks great, as well as the beer in the glass. Deep black, small creamy head. Smoky aroma. Starts strong-malty, modest dry, fine smoky. Finish a little bit sweeter, prickly, wonderful balanced. Very drinkable and good beer!
