COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schwarzbier is the last of a three-part series of brews at Upright using a lager yeast from the most popular beer in the country. This yeast strain ferments very clean and crisp, allowing for straightforward profiles. This schwarzbier embodies that - a black lager with balanced malt aromas and flavors. Don’t let the color fool you, it’s light on the palate and works as an alternative beverage to the wheat beers and blond ales of summer.

3fourths (8197) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Deep brown body with a tan head. Aroma, flavor and body are very much in-line with a standard Porter, much more roast-heavy than you ever find in German schwarzbier and much less black patent char, though the soy sauce and charred wood character is quite strong. Medium to full body, chewy with frothy carbonation and moderately low bitterness. Lagered for three weeks but honestly I don’t see it. Very ale-ish.

Draft at brewery, Portland. Pours a medium dark slight tan head. Aroma roasty smoky body light roasty sharp finish. Very nice and easy drinking with enough smoke to keep things interesting. Awesome!!!

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2013
Black. Bright tan edge head. Aroma of burnt charcoal bits and an espresso pot left on the stove too long. Taste is smoked and burnt coffee.

douglas88 (6233) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. A big nose of chocolate, earthy malt, roast. The flavor is similar: tobacco, huge coffee, some dark chocolates, ash, nutty. Certainly porter-like. Very nice.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Light for a schwarzbier, more like a dark lager. Black with white head, light grass aroma, flavour is like a dark lager with a malt finish. Is very crisp

mcberko (6840) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
On tap at Upright, pours a cloudy dark amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and some dry toasted nuts. Flavour brings out dry cocoa, toasted malt and a nutty quality. Very light an watery on the palate. Not a robust schwarz at all, but decent enough. Not one of Upright’s best.

Draft at the source with akax25g. Black. Bright tan edge head. Aroma of burnt charcoal bits and an espresso pot left on the stove too long. Taste is smoked and burnt coffee.
