This beer from Browar Pinta is one from their seasonal range, brewed in the cold months at the end of last year.  The name translates as ‘Black Hole’ – a fitting name for this dark lager, a style also known as a Schwarzbier.

Schwarzbier originated in Germany and has been around since medieval times.  First documented in 1390 was a beer called Braunschweiger Mumme (‘Brunswick Mum’) brewed in the town of Braunschweig (‘Brunswick’) in the Lower Saxony region.  The style also had a strong history in the Thuringia state in central Germany. 

Nowadways it is a common style to see in many breweries around the world, though Germany and Czech Republic would be the most common.

Our beer is dark brown in colour with a beige head.  The aroma is of roasted malt and dark chocolate.  These two flavours also dominate the taste.

Slightly sweet on the front palate, you’ll get some dark chocolate and a little caramel.  This is balanced out by the roasted malt astringency combined with an earthy hop character giving that pleasant bitterness from mid to back-palate.
