This black lager is as dark as it is delicious. It embodies the German ’Schwarzbier’ with a big, rich chocolate aroma, and deep roasted malt flavor and mild sweetness while still achieving a light, crisp lager finish. May the Schwartz be with you!

boFNjackson (4199) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 2, 2012
UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 May the Shwarzbier with you. I kid, I kid... Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured dark, near black with light amber/brownish highlights and a khaki head. This one was interesting. Palate was thick, a bit full bodied. A little buttery with toasted caramel and malt. Some sweet malt, a him of roast, cocoa powder, milk chocolate. Not as clean and crisp. I remember having this a couple of years back and it being much better.

Draught. Black with medium beige head. Lagery, malt and hops aroma. Flavour was rather like a Kulmbacher Monchshof. Malty with roasty notes. Hop finish.
