I had a pint of this on draft. They call it "Blackfin Lager" and list it now at 4.8%. This is a Very Good Schwarzbier. Great nose of smoke & roasted grain, this was great w/ BBQ

Well, I’m guessing this is their schartzbier I had. It was called the Blackfin Lager. Tap at the brewpub... black body with a rich creamy roasted caramel aroma with lesser notes of chocolate and coffee. Very smooth and drinkable. After a long hike this hit the spot.

Probably the best of Babe’s current line up and a brew that takes a little time to develop its full character. Profound chocolatey and roasted coffee cream flavors, with a thick smooth palate that might fool some into thinking that this is an ale.
