This traditional lager is medium in body with a deep roasted character. Its dark color and rich malty flavor come from specially roasted caramel and chocolate malts. This brew is lightly hopped with Noble Bavarian hops for a soft spiciness and a smooth clean finish. Cheers!

Kolsvart med stort ljusbrunt skum! Doftar karamell malt och lite humle. Lite bränd smak men helt ok!

Looks like a stout...doesn’t taste like it. Pours black with a thick tan head. All roasted malt on the nose. Has a funky aftertaste that lingers a long while. That aftertaste is like wort...brutal.

McWorta (830) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 11, 2014
Black coloured beer with a light tan fast fading head. Noses of roasted malts, burnt toffee, coffee and bitter chocolate with some spicyness to it. Rather watery texture with a light bitter taste of burnt toffee/roasted malts. Develops light salty traces with a notch of sweetness. Not too complex but nicely drinkable. The finish is lasting for a short while.

355ml bottle, poured into a lager glass. Appearance is clear brownish black with a small tan head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Flavour of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, dark muscovado and a hint of caramel and charcuteries. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture, soft carbonation. A great beer for the style, has relatively full body and the taste is well balanced.

Very impressive beige head--a solid three fingers thick--leaves Pollock inspired lacing on the glass side. Light barely penetrates through the deep brown (no reddish hue) liquor. Appears to be clear. Strong dark chocolate notes, a touch of burnt toast, and toasted marshmallow. Similar smells to a well-made porter. Crisp like a lager should be. The beginning of the taste is surprisingly neutral--malt flavors but not as obvious as the smell might indicate. The real treat comes from the swallow--strong caramel and dark chocolate notes with a wonderful blend of hop spiciness. The carbonation also shows up here. The aftertaste is surprisingly dry. In fact, the entire tasting devoid of any significant sweetness. A short description would be a "lagered porter", meaning it doesn’t have the roundness of typical fare. Working from memory, this is a more flavorful schwarzbier than others I’ve had. Worthy of a six-pack.

Nice and creamy. Aroma of mushrooms, mildly smoked charcuteries, red berries, and cocoa. Taste of smoked malts and dark caramel. Smooth finish.
