Dark in colour and character but light and creamy in texture, 8.6 Black emits a reassuring aroma of cocoa and freshly burnt coffee beans. On the palette you can taste warm, sweet and bitter flavours. A finish of amarena cherries and liquorice complete an intense, robust beer that’s complex in flavour while being beautifully balanced. 8.6 Black is a dark beer that’s brewed with natural mineral water from Bavaria's own spring, barley malt, maltose, caramel and hops.
