Best Schwarzbier Ever. Great roasted malt aroma with oatmeal. Flavor is full bodied malt, and very light hops. It has roasted grain and some coffee and nutty flavor as well. A black beer, like it should be, and great palate.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2008 Thanks to Skyview for hauling back a growler of this most excellent schwarzbier. Dark black body with a creamy brown head. Roasted aroma with a salty character. heavy grainy body with an almost seaweed saltiness to it.
rerate at the pub. This thing holds up well in a growler, but damn is it amazing on tap.

On draught at the Das Bierhaus in Menomonie, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind spotty lacing and an off-white ring. Aroma of roasted mixed nuts, toasted dark malt, with a touch of chocolate, coffee and flowery hops. Taste is very light carbonation, medium bodied with mostly a toasted malt and coffee flavor. Finish has a hint of metalic flavor at first, slightly dry, and then a lingering toasted grain malt remains after the finish. No bitterness during or after the finish on this schwarzbier. Well done!
