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

beerbill (3531) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2010
22 oz. bottle. Pours a very dark brown, just about black, with a moderate cream colored head that lasted until mid-glass and left a film with each sip. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt, cocoa and just a hint of smokiness. The flavor has more roasted malt and a bit less cocoa than the aroma, along with some mild smoke. The flavors compliment one another quite well. Nice body without being heavy. Goes down way too easily. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours black with a small light tan head. Aroma of sweet vanilla, roasted malt. Flavor is a little sweet for a schwarzbier with some bready malts. Pretty basic, plenty drinkable. 7/4/7/3/13 (3.4/5)

Cybercat (3497) - Georgia, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Aroma is rich, smoky and yeasty with a nutty hint, quite appealing. It pours a deep, barely translucent sable that shows reddish brown at the bottom and has a frothy light tan head that hangs around for a bit. Flavor is spicy, malty, a little smoky with woody and caramel hints. Texture is smooth and lively, bubbly and tingly.

The pour reveals a black color with brown highlights and a thin light brown head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Good flavor of roasted malt, and chocolate / coacoa. Very interesting and well-done.

theisti (3296) - 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.

Bottle at Joe’s tasting, drank right after the Black Cat Schwarz. This is not as good. Very vegetal, salty aroma. Mostly dark pour with a small head. Sucrose and veggie flavor, metallic, a bit thin.
