Tap. Black with off-white head. Sour fruits, acidic with some weird chemical taste. Light toasted grains with some ash. Mainly sour with light sweet touch and herbal bitter astringent finish. Light to medium bodied. Weird stuff, not really into it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap @ Becoloth, small sample, served in a kleintje pils glass. Clear dark brown color, frothy brown head, almost cola. Aroma is spicy, bit roast, anise, some dark bread. Bit sweet and spicy in taste. This is supposed to be a bottom-fermented clean dark lager, but instead they add spices and loads of sweetness to give the impression of a belgian double. Dont do that.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Bar Becoloth, Boxtel. Dark brown color with a dark red glare coming through, medium sized dense beige head that lasts for quite a while and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is exactly what you would expect from a schwarzbier: very malty, lightly earthy. Taste malts, earthy, lightly sweet, a hint of caramel, raisins and liquorice. Decent body and carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma has a lot of caramel. Come to think of it, this beer actually looks more like sweet or creme brulee stout than a schwarZ. But i am not complaining.
Tap at De Pintelier.
