A black beer, with deep copper hues and thick tan head. The aromas of sweetened coffee, milk chocolate and a light bready note. Flavours roasted coffee, subtle hint of caramel and cocoa, semi-sweet finish.
BBQ wings, burgers, Reuben, chocolate cake.
The beer is brewed in accordance with the Beer Purity Law, the Reinheitsgebot, meaning it could only use malted barley, hops, yeast, and water. The Pilsner malt still shines through all the de-husked black malt, giving it a lot of colour, some chocolate and coffee notes without being astringent. The lager yeast gives the beer a cleaner less fruity aroma than its English counterpart. The beer is more like a Schwarzbier (black lager) than an English Porter.
