COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2012
This had a dark opaque brown body with a creamy tan head and left sheets of "lace" in its wake. The aroma had roasty dark malt with a touch of dark srone fruit. The flavor was lightly roasty, had some plums, a hint of licorice, and a moderate woody bitterness. Dry finish. Pretty decent.

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.

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.
