Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Oily, opaque, black with tan ring. Syrup, sweet chocolate liquor aroma, rich, sweet flavour, faint wood, faint dryness. Smooth, full body, hardly any carbonation. Good. DSG (15432) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Black-colored with a light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roastiness, a bit of licorice notes and faint alcohol note. Bittersweet roasty flavor with coffee, some dark chocolate and a slightly bitter and slightly burnt finish. Medium-bodied. Nice, kind of a Stout-ish Schwarzbier. Iheartdarkbier (1) - Chur, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2013 does not count
Having moved from Seattle, (5 blocks away from Naked City tap and brew house) to Switzerland 7 months ago, I am delighted to have stumbled onto this extremely delightful bier. I thought my bier drinking days were over when I came to the land of pale yellow fizzy water.
This bier is the perfect combination of every thing I love about Stouts, Porters and Dark Ales and Lagers. The only thing is it does not have much head retention which I find makes a bier more attractive to me.
I like it because it has low carbonation, and low but not missing hop flavor, (maybe dry hopped), also was the mellow coffee flavor and not a burnt coffee like in many Porters, I’d have to say it’s a lower carbonated, fuller bodied Kona Pipeline Porter.

33cl bottle. -- Very dark with creamy brown head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, coffee. Flavor is rather sweet, caramel, caffeeish, even chocolaty. Well bodied, smooth creamy mouthfeel. In a strange way a bit artificial. charlotte (5461) - rødovre, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2012

Una bella birra scura dietro a una bella etichetta.
profumo intenso e corposo; uva passa, caffe’ e una punta inacidita.
Gusto ottimo. Caffe’ a profusione. Ottimo corpo. Ottimo tutto insomma. rauchbierlover (679) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2012
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, some coffee. Taste is more like cappuccino, some choco, licorice. Start sweet but has a pleasant bitter finish. "Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft" (cit.) Hugi (475) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2012
Black and opaque with a dark-brown, medium head (stable). Smells quite complex with notes of chocolate, licorice, biscuit and roasty. Tastes roasty, chocolate-like with a medium bitterness in the end. Quite oily with a full body and an astringend finish. Arve_Christian (5225) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2012

Nice roasted aroma smells pretty sweet. Pours dark with a creamy head. Whoa! Flavor explosion. More like a dopplebock, no maybe scotch, no maybedouble dunkl, wow I don’t know. Complex, too dark for me, I can’t even finish it but I give it props.
