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!

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2007 I really enjoy this Schwarzbier, just the perfect amount of malt and hops to satisfy you if you are looking for some character in a beer. a little taste of cocoa fulfills your palate. Cant wait to drink more.

Bottled from sampler 12 pack. Pours a translucent brownish black with reddish hues on the edge. Head was smalll and tan and lasted shortly. Aroma is of roasted malt with some mild espresso notes. Sweet caramel and bready malt also present. Flavor is sweet upfront of roasted barley and chocolate with some subtle spicy hops in the dry finish. Very moderate bitterness in the finish though not lingering. Some mild fruity esters notes present which is not to style for a lager. Body is medium and the mouthfeel is quite smooth with average carbonation. One of the better Sam Adams. Almost at the level of a porter.

I think this might be my new favorite SA brew. Very reminscent of a lighter Cream Stout. Pours a deep black with creamy tan head -- looks like a porter. Has a rich chocolate, coffee and raisin flavor, but the smoothness of a lager. The head remains through the whole glass and boy does this go down smooth. Finish is nice and lingers just slightly enough to entice you to another sip. I really enjoyed this and have asked my beer guy to get sixers of this (we only get in the Brewmaster’s collection right now). Cheers!

Dark chocolate brown with ruby edges. Nice tan head with a solid sheet of lacing on the glass. The nose is lightly fruity with some hop notes and light sweet roasted qualities, some husky malts. The flavor is balanced with a sweet chalky roasted malt note with a creamy mouthfeel. Finishes smooth and clean with a bit more light roast and light toasted fruit. I can drink a few more of these.

Black/Amber in color with a nice light tan head. Beer is full of roasted flavor and aroma. Palaate is very lingering. Good Brew.

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 can’t believe that this is my first schwarzbier rated on this site.

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