COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sustenance Black Beer, classically referred to as a Schwartz beer, is a dark American lager brewed in the spring. Soft and sweet on the palate, the roasted, dark caramel grains lend to satisfying drinking experience, while lager yeast creates a refreshing thirst-quenching sensation. This combination provides a rich, full-flavored, light bodied brew.

Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Deep nut-brown with a fine, staying, frothy, beige head. Dark caramel aroma, some sweet milky chocolate, mild roasted, some fruity hops, some fruity blackberry. Medium carbonation, lovely malty dry and quite creamy palate. Flavour is elegant, mild metallic tartness at first, then fat roasty maltiness, coffee, pine. Long, lingering, seriously dry malty finish. Extremely good for a schwarzbier.

madvike (2659) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle shared by BenC - Pours chocolatey brown with a thin tan head. Smells like rye bread and chocolate, lightly toasted. Tastes roughly the same, with a dry, ashy finish. Mixes some dry stout characteristics in there--nice. Thinner body, but it works. Smooth, very nice. Probably my favorite Shorts beer so far!
