COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Combining jet black color with incredibly smooth texture and decadent coffee flavor, BREWTALITY breaks the expectations of both rich espresso and dark beer to create a whole ’nuther beast. While brutal in alcoholic strength, this biggie beautifully showcases its roasted malt and coffee flavors without bringing on bitterness and bite. This is the first of two lagers in the series."
Re-released as part of "Alaska’s Most Wanted" Series

Opaque black beer. Semi soft palate that turns even softer and creamier. Rich dark malt with unapologetic coffee. Tempered by the cream and a light touch of hop this remains a very coffee forward beer and a very nice one.

A: The pour is a very dark brown color without much of a head. S: Smells sort of like what you would expect. Very roasty with a fair amount of coffee and chocolate. There’s a bit of acidity which I tend to find in a lot of schwarzbiers. T: Nice and roasty with a decent amount of coffee flavor. There’s a mild to moderate bitterness as well as some bittersweet chocolate flavors. A touch of molasses seems to be present as well. M: The body is light to medium with a low to medium carbonation. D: Not bad at all. A bit higher in alcohol than I was expecting, but at least it wasn’t boozy.

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours dark brown/black with a tan smear that quickly deleted. Aroma for me is primarily something like treacle and hop. The coffee just oozes around the edges. Aspects of sweet dark fruit are stronger. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate and espresso, with treacle and a good dose of dark fruit. Espresso vs coffee: it’s a strong, gritty coffee, not unlike the rough stuff I make in the morning. Which comes out of an espresso machine. This is certainly not dry. It still seems to have a lot of treacle. But it is one incredible drink. Power to the flavor. And this is a schwarzbier? Whither goest das reinheitsgebot? :)

Tmoney99 (11681) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2009
Bottle sample at local BA gathering. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting and produced excellent lacing. Moderate roasted malt, bread and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted dark cofee flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid standout brew and very good for style.
