COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional lager is medium in body with a deep roasted character. Its dark color and rich malty flavor come from specially roasted caramel and chocolate malts. This brew is lightly hopped with Noble Bavarian hops for a soft spiciness and a smooth clean finish. Cheers!

This is a ruby tinted dark beer which poured with a very nice foamy beige head. The nose was somewhere between malted milk balls and toast. Light body for the color, with a white sugar sweetness with some chocolate and roasted grain notes. Finish has a little coffee bean bitterness to it as I exhale. Easy to drink. I canít believe that this is my first schwarzbier rated on this site.

Iíll let everyone else tell you what this beer looks and smells like. Iíll tell you it tastes good. Light spice scent and flavor and the malt flavor is close to a stout. A must try!

Nice, a deep dark lager style with a heavy dose of chocolate malt and taste. Slight oily mouthfeel doesnít take away from drinkability. Drink while chilled, as it does not warm up well.

Pours with a dark brown to black body with red tinting topped by a medium thick head with little lacing. Itís slightly sweet and malty with a subtle caramel note and a touch of roast...a little weak in the aroma, however the flavor is full and rather impressive. Medium bodied, smooth and a touch warming.

Poured dark brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma was weak compared to other Schwartzbiers Iíve had. There was chocolate, licorice and fruits. The taste at the beginning reminded me of a blueberry yogurt. As it went down the chocolate became more pronounced along with the licorice. Other beers of this style have a coffee taste. I was lacking that here but this was still a good beer.

12 oz bottle-pours a tan creamy head. Color is a clear black with tint of red. Aroma-light licorice. Flavor threw me a curve, I expected a licorice, dark flavor and it tastes like a standard lager with a nice blend of malt and light hops. OK, as I get futher through, itís taste of chocolate is becoming more pronounced. A good beer.

Bottle. Pours dark brown - almost black - with a moderate tannish head that lingers fairly well. Aroma is pretty typically lagerish, with sweet malts and soap plus a little roastiness, coffee and some bold floral hops. Flavor is sweetish, roasty malts with a bit of rice syrup, soy and clover. Light to medium body and gentle carbonation.

Very little aroma to the beer but there was a small hint of malt after the initial pour. The beer has a dark color with a hint of red. Nice flavor with a touch of roasted malt.

Interesting. Dark and malty just like the description says. I donít have much to go on for this style, it may be my first. I like the fact that it wows me and it is labled a lager. Great dark colour, nice spice on the malt, perfect hop touch. I feel like it is lacking something, but Iím not sure what...
