The Baron Schwarzbier is a classic German black beer.  The color is black with tinges of ruby and brown.  The flavor is full and crisp.  The Schwarzbier starts with a slight roast flavor upfront followed by a faint chocolate body with a very crisp clean lagered finish.  A very full yet drinkable lager.

Pours deep brown with red highlights and a long-lived head. The aroma is sour and musty, with plenty of dark brown bread and a suite of off-aromas that I cannot place. Flavor is again brown-bready, mildly sweet, a bit roasty, but overall unimpressive if not a little bit off.

After the very good Oktoberfest from this brewery, I’m disappointed.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 6, 2009
22 oz bottle. Deep roasted barley aroma with a bit of smoke and chocolate/caramel. Clear dark brown bordering on black with a very small tan head. Super smooth mouth feel and a light body that defies the appearance, average carbonation. This is a great example of a "German Black Beer" fresh from the Pacific Northwest.

Reid (2337) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2007
Black ale ,with a nice sized thick ,frothy tan head. nice malt centered aroma, sorty of toffeeish in character. Again malt driven taste, semi-sweet, caramel, English toffee , some tingle of hopping below all this but barely there,like "DA" I find a slight smokiness almost in the aftertaste. Ok on the palate, low carbonated and smooth. Not my favourite style, but i found this nice and easy to drink.
