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.

GT2 (8755) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Tap at Churchkey for Shorts Tap Takeover. The pour is a clear ruby looking near black. Tan head fades quickly. Nose at first is a giant whiff of Shorts’ proprietary Mars-derived bacterial infection complete with all of its complexities like blood, vomit, sweat, iron metallic. Taste is luckily not infected so much with astringent coffee and ash coming through. Or maybe the coffee and ash covers the infection. Palate is thin and drained, probably from Shorts’ alien derived bacteria which I shall from now on refer to as SBC3830-X. Pretty harmless and boring body with a nose that is a play off between nothing and SBC3830-X. It would be interested to have NASA lab SBC3830-X.
