Enjoy the smooth and light taste of this classic German Black Lager brewed with four types of malt (Schwarz, Munich, Cara Munich and Pale), Hallertauler Perle hops from Germany and the care and experience from the only German brewery in the Rocky mountains. Schwarzbier is mild and balanced and its moderate alcohol content of 4.8% vol. makes it perfectly suitable to be enjoyed year round. Come, all you dark beer fans, and enjoy the Dark Side of Bayern with Bayern Schwarzbier and experience again why German beer has the reputation as the best beer in the world.

Pint on tap at the brewery listed at 7.6%ABV but the label here matches the beer I sampled. Anyways, pours black in color with some red highlights. Aroma is of chocolate and grassy hops. Taste is chocolate malty sweetness with some roasted grain bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A nicely done brew for the style and definitely recommended.

Great dark suggary aroma and a slight roasted note. Very nice flavors throughout with a lot of emphasis on the carmel notes. Ends with light roasted flavor. Leaves the mouth a little dry at the finish. Could use more body.

At Bayern: Pours a beautiful chestnut brown with a small, off-white head. Sweet and inviting aroma. Taste is more roasty and floral hop filled, but a little malty in the end. Nutty, bur more sweet than anything. Not as roasty or smokey as I might have expected, but still enjoyable.

Brought back from Toby’s great Montana Growler round up. Pours out a amber topped with a sand head. Aroma was of nut brown and roast malts. Taste was more of the nuts along with some sweetness.
