COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the black session lagers of the Czech Republic, Notch Černe Pivo is malty, toasty, and infinitely drinkable. While Černe pours black, it trades the high intensity roast and bitterness of a porter or stout for the mellow malty profile of a lager. Think roasty, but think subtle roasty. It also trades the fruitiness of an ale for a cleaner lager aroma, which allows the subtle malt character to come through. Černe Pivo is Czech for “Black Beer”, and is a style wholly indigenous to the Czech Republic, yet with little awareness in the US.

SrSilliGose (3322) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
bottle. pours a deep brown with a sizeable frothy tan brown head. aroma of silky dough, hazelnuts, cold roasty coffee, and a touch of licorice. taste is rustic floury dough, nuts, and bitter roast. dry. sessionable. tasty. to style, and maybe 85th percentile of the "black beers" i had in the czech republic, but i haven’t had many. like quite a bit. as far beers on ratebeer under the schwarzbier category, i’ll give the nod to the heater allen schwarzbier i had a couple weeks ago. this wasn’t too bad though. personally, would like a touch more bright roast, and a touch less dough. but who knows.

On tap at Meadhall - Cambridge, MA. Clean roast aroma. Light coffee-like body, edging seltzer-Like and minerally, with a bit of mush to the middle. Good dark flavors, but not as snappy as it could be.

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Toasty coffee malt and singed hops aroma. Odd lactic undertone, wait till it warms if that’s not really apparent. Dark cola brown. The texture is kind of cola like too - nice and crisp and sometimes gritty, yet mellow as a whole. Bittersweet coffee taste. This one is about what the brewer describes, and can be abbreviated to something like dunkel with schwartz tendencies.

MaBeer1972 (1477) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Pours out looking like a typical stout. Nice frothy tan head. Light roasty aromas. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin and somewhat fizzy. Lots of roasty malts though. This one is what it says it is. Easy drinking and quaffable. Perfect with a meal.
