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!

drowland (7112) - Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Dark brown almost black pour with a small khaki head. Roasted malts, coffee, caramel, a bit of a burnt toffee touch in the aroma. Roasted malts in the flavor, dry enough to balance the caramel and toffee aspect. Nice.

Let’s make this beer official! 10th rate for this Schwartz. 12oz bottle I picked up in Fredericksburg. Pours a watery mostly opaque black with some creamy, beige head. Nose is nice, stale bread, some light smoke, a little Worcestershire sauce, malt, very light soy. Flavor is nice, more depth than the standard Schwartz, grilled meat, some mushroom, malt, brown toasted bread, some coffee, metallic tonic water, some soy. Medium bodied, dry, mostly clean finish. Really solid.

Strykzone (5897) - 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.

This one poured a medium brown with a beige head. Aroma was light roast, caramel, and burnt sugar. Flavor was waaaay more roasted that expected, Like eating straight black patent. Bleh.
