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!

Rather light, a bit of malt, but not sweet. Some roasty toasty feel, some nuts. Slightly watery overall.

jcnielsen (3129) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a black color with off white head. Roasty, toffee, slight nutty aromas. Burnt, ashy, malty, slight metallic flavors. Not as good as I was expecting based on their other German lagers I’ve had.

Doofgoblin (478) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2015
This is a really good schwarzbier. The nose is toasty with distinct roasted malt ...taste is very toasty like crusty bread...also has elements of sugary coffee, although this is secondary to the toastiness...the finish is clean and easily crushable...and it doesn’t have a strong "lagery" tinge...it’s a good beer to get you limber for something stronger...

HighlanderOne (1200) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2015
On tap at Brewers Cask. Not getting much but malt in aroma. Almost stout black with a bit of tan head. Tasting roasted malt, cinnamon, grassy hops, coffee, licorice, brown sugar. Not what I expected from a black lager, but quite delicious.
