This is a traditional German style dark lager beer. Flavors of chocolate or coffee are common, but usually subtle. Just because the beer is dark, doesn’t mean that the flavors are. Expect the beer to be opaque and black, as the name would imply.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, cola-brown with a frothy, beige foam head. Gorgeous nose of baking cocoa, dirt, some earthy leaves, subtle roast, milk chocolate. Tastes great, light to medium sweet, some ash, chocolate, soft roasted malts, background cherries with just a hint of tang. Light to medium bodied with high, massaging carbonation. Very mild dryness to finish, some ashy roast, mellow cocoa, touches of burnt wood and earth. Good balance. Very mellow overall, though certainly not lacking in nuance. One of the best schwarzbiers I’ve ever had.
