COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium bodied German Schwarzbier, a lager, was fermented at an increased temperature from typical lagering ranges. This technique turns it into what is commonly referred to as a "Steam Beer". Increasing the black malt content, delivers a subtle smoky character in the finish sending this uncommon steam beer up in smoke!

On tap the brewery. Molasses, licorice and malty nose, nutty with a little bit of hop spice. Light smoky-coffee notes but very weak. Burnt sugar. Dark brown-black clear with thin head. Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Starts medium sweet with molasses, burnt sugar, and some carbonic smoky acidity. Pretty smooth throughout but mild bitter end. Sweet after and some nutty dry astringency.

Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy tan head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was woody, dry , roasty and a bit smoky. The flavor was semi-sweet with a moderate woody and nutty presence and touches of smoke and bacon. Medium finish and body. Ok.
