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

Cask at VBF, deep beige head, malty aroma, deep brown color. This cask had a light bourbon and vanilla bean conditioning, reminicent of marshmallow. Great mouth feel, nice and dry, just a great beer.

Pours pitch black, medium off-white head, moderate lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and yeast. Taste is predominantly a light bitter, roasted malt, with mild balancing sweetness. A little sticky, light body, refreshing.

Picked up a bottle on the sale rack at the Beer Store. I enjoyed the beer, but had a lot of roasted malt for a Shwarzbier. Poured very dark brown, almost black. Very little foam, but what did come up stayed for a while. The aroma was malty and sweet. Taste was light like a would have expected but there is a lot of roasted malt flavor which was too much for my tastes in a Schwarbier. The roasted malt also interfeared with the finish, which was not a crisp and clean as I like in a Lager beer. Almost seemed a light stout. Mouthfeel was light as expected, and I had no trouble drinking the beer. I might also suggest a new label. I really had to look at the beer bottle to see what it was. The label was dark and without a close look I could only see a very long German Word (fireman) that I could not pronounce. I only invested the effort since it was on the sale rack.
