On tap at the keg. Really well done and enjoyable. A true schwarzbier. Plenty of toasted malt quite crisp and palate is a touch smoky. Nice.

Bottle from Brew Box. Pitch black with light tan head. Strong aroma of toasted coffee and malt, hint of hops and trace if pine. Slightly bitter coffee, toast flavours with short hoppy taste. Not bad, not bad at all.

650 ml bottle bought at the brewery on June 25, 2015. Black, small head. Dry coffee malt aroma, lightly hoppy. The taste is more bitter sweet, light roasted coffee with some fruitiness, light bitterness. Very respectable flagship beer!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft - Light roast malts and some pale malt sweetness. Deep brown with a nice beige head. Roast malts, vegative bitterness and almost a bit of farmhouse and manure in the finish. Toasty roast or toffee sweetness is not there. Odd long light bitter finish.

Scent of dark roasted malt. Opaque dark brown colour. Flavour of coffee, molasses, and chocolate. Full body with medium carbonation. Great beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (650 ml). BB 31-09-2014. Thanks to Andrew for this one! Black with a medium brown head and some lacing. Aroma is mild with roasted malt, liquorice and hints of dark fruits. Taste is also light with liquorice, roasted malt, dark fruits and gentle cocoa finish. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly silky mouthfeel. Short aftertaste. Nothing is "off" and it’s quite drinkable. A little more body could help, but it’s an interested Schwarzbier.

It is very similar to a Genius. It is full bodied. It was very enjoyable. This is a beer I would offer to my friends.
