3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of roasted malts and bitter chocolate. Very dark brown beer with red tones. Head is beige and creamy, not long lasting. Flavour is sweet and filled with bitter chocolate. Finish is dry, with good cleansing bitterness. Soft on the palate, a bit watery body. Even though it is bottom-fermented, it tastes more like a decent porter than a schwartzbier

To me it’s more a dark lager than a schwartzbier. Very dark, lots of roasted character but still lets the hops through. Refreshing for a dark beer like this. NIce aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 50 cl) "Hell" was a pale beer so this "Heaven" s’gotta be black? Somehow I would’ve expected things the other way around. Anyways, this really is pitch black with a small light brown head. Dry and bitter with a lovely hoppy aroma and an almost absent sweetness. A bit too ashy for my liking. 260405

Poured a reddish mahogany color with a thin, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoke, caramel, and roasted malts. Chocolate, light roast, toffee, some citrus hoppiness, and a light bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. Hoppy, very dusty aroma. Also fruity, roasted malts. Almost black colour with a red hue. Small unstable, light brown head. Very malty and quite roasted flavour, but still mild. Aftertaste has some roasted barley bitterness. Quite nice, semi-smooth mouthfeel.
