This was pretty revolutionary when it first came out as it was one of the first black beers of the American Craft Beer industry. It is a smooth lager with dark roasted malts that are blended nicely. It pokes a deep black color with a small head and mild aroma. This is a good beer.

[US West Coast Trip 2013] nej jag är ledsen men Schwarzbier är inte min grej. Rostade toner, bröd och lite citrus i aroman. Mycket citrus i smaken, nja det här var inte bra....

12oz bottle. Pours brown, clear, small head with very light lacing. Great aroma, very appetizing, with sweetbreads. Caramel-y taste, very balanced, bitter enough and complex for a lager. Different than other schwarzbiers I’ve had, not roasty at all. Pretty good, man!

12 oz.bottle. Pours a caramel brown color with a thin off white head. The aroma and flavor are mildly toasted malts, some earthy notes, mild overall. This was a beer that I used to drink back in the 90’s when there weren’t many options.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Subdued nose of roasted malts. A dark brown pour with ruby highlights and a mostly diminishing tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is primarily sweet. Dark pitted fruit, malts, also a graininess with a slightly bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonatin. Overall, I wouldn’t want to drink more than one at a time because of the sweetness. Having said that, this beer has some nice flavors and is enjoyable in limited quantities.

Pours a brownish reddish dark copper with lingering beige foam. The aroma is sweeter musty malts with a taste that is similar. Easy drinking lager, preferable over the abundance of southern amber lagers.
