Sometimes things go wrong at a brewery. While brewing our Donder & Bliksem a mistake was made and we added a lot of malts that weren’t suppose to go in this brew. This is how our Bohemian Lager turned into a Schwarzbier. As you see, we turn our Difficulties into a Virtue.

In bottle at home. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, coffee, caramel and alcohol. Similar roasty flavours with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter with lingering burnt toast and chocolate characters. Alcohol is well balanced.
