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

Pours a mostly opaque dark mahogany with a thin, wispy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet toasty dark caramel and roasted malt with a touch of noble hops and dark chocolate. Body starts fairly full and semi-sweet with a good roasty dark malty flavor balanced with subtle bittering hops before a drier, smooth finish. Pretty true to style and very drinkable.

Bomber shared by theisti. Pour a sort of Coke brown with a tan head. Sort of a pilsner aroma with touches of roast and some herbal hops. The flavor is light, but shows off some chocolate flavors and good roasted notes. Medium body with a ashy dry finish. High carbonation. Really an ejoyable beer. Very sessionable. Thanks Tim.

theisti (3219) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 26, 2008
22 oz bottle courtesy of mcox90. Pour is deep black with ruby highlights with great settling and a pretty 1 inch tan head. Aroma of not much really, some faint roasted maltiness. Taste reveals more character than the nose - the roasty-smoky malt and some prune fruitiness. Finish has some hay and grass. Palate thinnish, drying. Super easy drinking beer I could drink a million of these in a session. Thanks Michael.

Lubiere (9904) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2008
Aged in Bourbon Cask with Vanilla Beans. A dark brown murky lager with a thin light moka head. A pleasant woody bourbon cask aroma with light caramel and butterscotch. In mouth, powdery chocolate with notes of Brett, vanilla and cherries. Light and refreshing. On tap at Vermont Brewers Fest 2008, July 19, 2008.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Bottle... Post RBSG ’08 O-Town/Vero Beach Throwdown Chapter 8... Clear, very dark lager with little to no head. Chocolaty nose. Light to medium-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Well-balanced and a touch chocolaty, but watery and bland. Finishes weak and fairly nondescript.Thanks to mcbackus for providing the bottle!
