COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An easy drinking medium body lager, with just a tiny hint of roastiness and a noticeable but well-balanced hop presence that’s not overly bitter. An opaque black lager that reveals deep ruby undertones in the light. Munich, Pilsner and Black Malt flavors play off the flowery, spicy notes of Noble German hops. Cold fermentation and conditioning with Bavarian lager yeast assures a clean draught with a dry finish.

A dark brown medium bodied beer with a frothy tan head. Clean minerally aroma. Flavor is mostly toasty malt with a good hop balance. Backend is slightly creamy. Good on a spring day for sure.

On tap at Whip-In during RBWG 2012. Pours a dark amber with a small beige head with sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a raisin malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt flavor and light dry finish. A decent schwarzbier from Live Oak.

Black with a cream head. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate, very smooth. Great on the palate, very smooth, chocolate, light roasted malts, faint yeast, and a great finish.

2/25/12. On tap during RBWG 2012. Clearish black pour with a small tan head. The aroma is a bit plain - somewhat watery but with a hint of roast and butter. Light toast in the flavor with definite butter. Diacetyl? Eh.
