COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schwarzbier (shvahrts-beer) is German for "black-beer". Brewed to be a light bodied dark beer with a clean, crisp, refreshing finish. Its well balanced malt character is complimented with a touch of roastiness. Brewed using imported black patent malt and noble hops. Pairs with chunky dark breads, marinated meats such as brisket or German Sauerbraten. Not recommended for cellaring. Serve in a flute or pilsner glass at 45-50deg

Stine (1572) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle. Very thin caramel color brown pour to a hollow black body. Cinnamon sugar, honey, root beer candies, and licorice aroma. Sugary, and sticky. Similar, syrupy root beer candy flavor; some peppery earthy bitterness, maple syrup. Chewy medium roasted coffee, some chocolate, black licorice; flavor profile is basic, but built well. Medium palate; soft and oily. Finishes with lengthy cola-like residual sugars. Pleasant stuff. Thanks Aaron!
