A true TBK original, we kick this German-style black lager up a couple notches. Big clean malty flavor with just a hint of roasted malt. "May the Schwartz be with you!"

Killer swartzbier. Chocolaty flavors which lingers on the palate forever. Love this beer.

cheap (5360) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Froma bottle, quite aromatic. Big abnd dark. I had high hopes for this becasue the label said black lager. Is everything imperial these days? Big strong in yer face alky, not sure how this is a lager. By taste? NEVER. Think imerial stout or imperial porter on this, perhaps even foreign stout, yes, the last time I tasted something like this it was lion stout. wew. strong. Session is kick you in the teeth. Finish is kick you in the head.

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a very small head that fizzes away quickly. Aroma is fruity, not what I was expecting from a schwarzbier. Kinda smells like fruit cake, licorice, and grape juice. Taste is very sweet and no bitterness. Lots of grape juice and fruit cake. Finish is a little tart. Thin mouthfeel. I don’t like this beer at all. And I don’t know what style I would put this in but its not even close to a schwarzbier.

22oz bomber bottle consumed in April 2010. Dark red/brown but not quite schwarz. Malt is more bready than roasty in the aroma. Almost like black rye bread. On the palate there’s chewy fruit and licorice. Also lots of creamy chocolate. Rather sweet for my taste.
