Miner Mishap is our version of a traditional German Schwarzbier, also known as "Black Pilsner" or simply "Black Lager". Our traditional version was formulated by our friend William Scott (or Scotty as he’s known around the brewery), an award-winning homebrewer and certified beer judge who has always been very generous about sharing his creations and his seemingly unlimited knowledge of beer. It seemed only fitting that since we started out as a homebrewery, we would try and recreate one of Scotty’s homebrews (which are typically 5 or 10 gallon batched) here in our 15 barrel 鸑 gallon) brewhouse. Brewed almost entirely with malt imported from Weyermann Specialty Malts in Bamberg, Germany and hopped with Imported German Perle and Hallertaur Mittlefreu hops, Miner Mishap is truly a one-of-a-kind original.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
A: The pour from bottle to pint glass is black with about one finger of tan colored foam. S: The aroma is almost solely roasted malt with perhaps a touch of earthy hops. T: Like the nose, the primary player in the flavor is the roasted malt. There is a slight acidity to the beer which lends it an almost sour flavor. A slight bitter and smokiness is present also, but at times is overwhelmed by the acidity. M: The body is quite good, especially for what most people generally expect from a lager. The carbonation is very lively. D: Definitely an easy drinker in terms of alcohol "punch", but the acidity/sourness detracts somewhat from the drinkability.

Thanks to Darkover for the trade. The beer is a dark brown color with some red around the edges. Medium thick beige head that recedes quickly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt and cocoa in the nose. Medium body with flavors of lightly roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. The finish is creamy with a milk chocolate and toasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle. Pours near black/dark brown with a light brown/grayish head that lasts. Aroma has lots of dark malts as well as a nice roasted note. Flavor begins a bit weak, but dark roasted malts build throughout with a bit of caramel.

3fourths (8801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Dark brown or even purple hues with light at the edges of the glass. Has a bad sour hay and mold aroma, with a bland, flavorless moldy harshness. Bad in so many ways.
