O達rien Black Lager, brewed in the tradition of German Schwarzbier, is the first winter beer to be unveiled by the gluten-free brewer.
It has a deep ruby/black in colour with a tan head. Specially roasted sorghum and millet malts provide an aroma of roast coffee and rich chocolate flavour, while the noble hops add floral and spicy notes. A full, creamy mouth feel gives way to a roasty bitterness that lingers through a clean and dry finish.

ALLOVATE (2911) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2014
Deepest, darkest ruby with excellent clarity. A little life but then it fades; the head becomes little more than a tannish ring. Aroma of roasted chestnuts, boiled rice, carob beans and cocoa with a lick of coffee. Pasty, chalky mouthfeel. Quite dry with a heavy hand on roasted elements. Roast coffee and carob, charred wood and ash. Long ashen swallow. Lightly bitter, malt (sorghum I guess!) forward. Light in body and quite smooth past the spritzy front-end. Quite approachable. I was pleasantly surprised! (33cL, no date stamp, 5.3% ABV, sample from Dig & Fish)
