Sometimes things go wrong at a brewery. While brewing our Donder & Bliksem a mistake was made and we added a lot of malts that werent 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.

Opaque dark brown beer, big fluffy pale tan head. Light dry palate with mild minerally crispness. Dry malt, vague roast and a little spice. Whisper of unsweet caramel. Dry spicy finish. Its a little dry and flirts with dull.

berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle (33cl). Black colour. Finger-thick off-white head, reduces quite quickly and settles as an uneven bubbly film and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, boiled vegetables, yeast, smoked meat, hint of fruit and vinegar. Medium body, average carbonation. Taste of dry malt and a mild fruity/vegetable sweetness with a growing bitterness. All-in-all well balanced. Tongue-drying aftertaste of malt and raw licorice.

dfearnley (1975) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle to pint glass Sweet malt, cookie, brown sugar, chocolate. Deep brown with a very creamy dark tan head. Taste is dark chocolate, almost bunt toast, earth, and cloves. Pretty good, but a little thin for a dark beer.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Pours a very dark brown letting little to no light through and a large tan soapy head leaving traces of lace. Aroma is mild coffee, roasted malts, sweet malts, and caramel. Flavour is clean, sweet, rich maltiness, bitter dark chocolate, and an after taste that drys out and lingers for a short time.
