Default gift label - schwarzwald stout

so heres a label i did today for my next brew, which i plan to give away along with my pumpkin ale (in 2ndary) as a christmas gift.

im calling it schwarzwald (black forest <---correct me please if i am incorrect) stout as it will be a double chocolate cherry stout. seems some of you folks speak german out there, so if you could also offer help with the characters used in the title. i know there are some of those crazy dots over some of the letters (both A's?), but im not sure. anyway i like it so far, but might make some adjustments if i wake up feeling diffferent. also, i want to put in those crazy dots



inspired by others on here, i added a little back label with some blah blah blah on it.

I like the style, very nice! On white labels cut out? Clear labels with a slight text color change would really pop on amber bottles.

I don't remember Schwarzwald having any umlauts myself. I used to live there in the early 90's. Stuttgart's a pretty cool city.

It looks nice enough.

FWIW / BTW / FYI: The Germans don't make a stout. A schwarzbier, a bock, yes, stout no.

I love the labels and the name. I made a Black Forest Hefe (blasphemy!) a few months ago. I called it Schwarzwaldenweizen

AWESOME label! I grew up just right around the corner from the Schwarzwald and man ... ppl would love that label. If you replace Stout with 'Starkbier' it would be even better!

Maybe not stout, but they do make Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte -- Black Forest cherry cake, generally just called Black Forest Cake in the US. The name is a perfect fit for a chocolate/cherry stout.

Nice label, too.

Yes, I know. I've been there also. (I lived in Germany for 9 years).

Chocolate/cherry, yes, but it's still not a stout.

The one recommendation to call it a starkbier, though technically incorrect, was probably the best solution.
