COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We spent a long night of brainstorming, around a few pints, to create a beer suitable to big our good friends adieu. We found that Reprieve Schwarzbier is the Artisan lager for the job. This black beer is a Bohemian Pilsner gone dark. German malts, noble hops, and lager yeast combine for our take on this traditional beer style. Though they may be moving on, we won’t let the lights go dark.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
My first ever Schwarzbier. Poured from bomber into Founders snifter. A: Pours very dark, almost like stout. 1.5 finger dirty pearl head leaving a nice lace as it dissipates. S: Big barley and malts. Smells like a traditional pilsner. So interesting. T: Traditional barley with a nice malt backbone. Some hops on the backend as well. M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Filmy mouth feel with a great hop lingering taste. O: This was a very strange beer. I feel like it showed several qualities of a few beers, but in the end it was its own. I enjoyed the taste, but I don’t have anything to compare it to. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-19-2011

22oz bottle 5/12/11 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-46° in Lager Glass-Pours a very dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of burnt malt, chocolate, and slight smoke. Taste of the same with some caramel and chocolate. This medium to full bodied brew is not bad but I am not a fan of this style.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Black color. Two fingers of cramy tan head. Retention is average and a honeycomb pattern of lacing is left behind. 3.5 S: Clean roastiness, herbal and earthy hops. Grainy with undertones of caramel and chocolate. Good, but could use some more power. Not particularly sweet, but not dry at all. 3.5 T: Taste is more assertive. Big earthy hoppiness, light roast, moderate chocolate, light caramel. More doughy than grainy. 3.5 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Could use a bit more creaminess, but I do like how thick this is. 3.5 D: Good, solid schwarzbier. This one is a lot less dry than most of that I’ve had of the style. Definitely worth a buy if black lagers are your thing. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-16-2012 02:40:13
