COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A German-style black lager. Hints of caramel and coffee blend in this light to medium dark lager. Do not let the color fool you, this beer goes down very easy. May the schwartz be with you!

chinchill (2668) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2015
12 oz bottle with a 22 Sept. 2014 date stamp. Pours clear, dark red-brown with a decent head, but the head soon reduces to a ring. True to style, this is a very well crafted Schwarzbier. Plenty of sweet toffee in the aroma; caramel, coffee and black bread in the flavor. Lightly sweet. O: Nearly as good as Sprecher’s, this is highly recommended for style

Holdwine (1111) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Points off for not being smoky enough. No bacon. Otherwise a truly good beer. Sweet porter-like. Chocolate, coffee and dark fruits. Nice effort.

Strykzone (5342) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Nate as a Christmas mixer. Black with a tan head. I get ash and chocolate in the aroma with a little roast. The flavor is earthy with that roast and chocolate. The ash, too. A nice smooth easy drinking beer.

kramer (5320) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is pretty nice, roasty and slightly sweet with licorice and coffee. The flavor is just lightly sweet with some burnt caramel, licorice, coffee, and a light bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied with a light cling and soft gentle carbonation. Pretty nice beer, I enjoyed this one.

JStax (3431) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2014
12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a near black with a beige head of foam that fizzles out quickly. The aroma has notes of dark roast and burnt toffee. The taste is roasty and mostly roast and caramel. I get a touch of sweetness in the finish. Higher carbonation. Medium body.
