This is a black lager with a dark ruby color topped by mocha froth. Attractive brown sugar, coffee and hazelnut aromas invite the drinker to take a sip. The taste features surprising notes of mint and eucalyptus that give way to a clean bitterness with a cereal coffee taste that overwhelms the palate. This is a full-bodied malt beer with a very long finish.

Target Clientele

This type of lager was eclipsed by the Pilsner at the end of the 19th Century, but is once again in style to the delight of stout fans looking for German exoticism. The sweet chocolate and coffee taste of this beer will seduce just about everyone. Don’t be afraid of the dark….thoughts!
