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.

DSG (5799) - 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.

If you like schwarzbier, you’ll like this one ! I is a little hard on the taste, but goes beautifully with food. I’d drink it again any time !

Tasty schwarzbier. Malty, with some herbs and a fresh floral touch. And a cool bottle of course.
