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

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.

Really dark with lots of chocolate in the aroma with a super smooth mouthfeel. Flavors is really hoppy with burnt caramel and toffee. Short on the finish though.

Had never seen this stuff until today. Very tasty lager and got more flavorful as it warmed up. Plan on trying some others by this brewer.
