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!

Reddish cola colored beer with blonde head. Aromas of chocolate, bread, roasted malts and herbal hops. Flavor has roasted malts and bread. Palate is medium full with high carbonation. Finishes with a medium bite of bitterness, leaving an aftertaste of roasted and sweet malts and coffee acidicy. Kind of basic schwarzbier with mild aromas.

Black body with a smaller khaki head. Aroma isn’t too special, faded european hops and a little bit of roasted malts. Much better flavor, lots of roasted nuts with none of the harsh ashiness I’ve gotten from some schwarzbier. Surprisingly thick and satisfying. Served as Black and Gold at the Sam Adams "brewery" in JP, apparently you can also buy this at the Garden. Really pleased with this one.

Flaska från SB. Svartbrun vätska, typiskt för en schwarzbier. Mycket kakao i doften med inslag av kaffe. Det hela avrundas med en antydan av bränt däckgummi. Torr besk inledning som sedan ersätts med lite väl hög sötma. Lämnar inte så värst mycket avtryck. En ok mörk lager.

Svart med brun krona som dock inte håller länge. Doftar rostad malt och smakar detsamma men kroppen är tunn och saknar fyllighet och djup. En ok öl men inte mer.

Pours a nice dark black with tan head. Very roasty on the nose, almost like a burnt smell. Some chocolate and roasted malt on the palate. Not overly complex for the style, sort of one dimensional.

Brun farge, med medium skum. Aromaen er malt, humle og noe sjokolade. Smaken er humle, sjokolade og noe malt. Medium konsistens. Fin mild bitterhet i ettersmaken, litt tørr på tunga.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a black body, slightly beige highlights the edges of the white foamy head that quickly fades. The smell had a slight coffee, subdued chocolate and cola. The taste was mildly sweet. The palate sat about a medium, slightly sessionable, smooth aftertaste and finish. Overall, good for the style and good for me.

Kolsvart med stort ljusbrunt skum! Doftar karamell malt och lite humle. Lite bränd smak men helt ok!

Looks like a stout...doesn’t taste like it. Pours black with a thick tan head. All roasted malt on the nose. Has a funky aftertaste that lingers a long while. That aftertaste is like wort...brutal.
