The Schwartz came in at 9.5%abv with 56IBU’s, and is just the smooth, mellow dark beer we need at a time like this! The very subtle roast compliments the malt very well, and finishes nice, smooth and dry.

Bottle courtesy of a recent Tampa Tasting. Pours a brown ale brown with an off-white head. Nose is some roast, some earth, some cocoa, some chocolate, and some ash. Flavor is similar with roast, chocolate, light earth, dark chocolate, and some ash. Light to medium in body and a really nice schwartz overall.

Tmoney99 (13602) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle shared at Natifest 12. Poured a black color with a large frothy brown head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted malt bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Sample at Natifest. Dark brown color. Little light brown head. Licorice nose-smell. Very bitter taste. Some bite. Roasty malts, big licorice. Light carbonation, dry texture. Not my thing

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Didn’t know this was imperialized, which is a complement given how well balanced yet robust this was. Lots of chocolate, smoke, and a touch of anise in the nose. Full body, light but lively carbonation, and a very nice, smooth schwarz for such a big beer. Roasted but pert, a good one.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a creamy brown head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has a good amount of smoke and roast with backing dark grains. Flavor begins toasty with dark grains and then finishes with a bit of smoke.
