I think you just made a Tropical stout, not sure if that's the right word but as I understand it breweries in hot climates are all set up for lager, so when they want to make a stout they run it through the same kit and I assume use the same lager yeast.

Schwarzbier would certainly be fermented low for a clean lager flavour. Tropical Stouts are typically a bit stronger and sweet-ish, and made with lager yeast fermented warm. Maybe this is a Session Tropical Stout?

I wonder what flavours this yeast will kick off at 18c. I assume not all lager yeasts are suitable for warm fermentation.

sorry, my mistake with fermentation temperature, its been fermenting around 11ºC/13ºC.
