bottle i had saved from the rbsg09 beer dinner. 12oz bottle that steve had brought along. pours a nice black with a 2 finger light brown head that is very dense and creamy, looks like a stout or porter. aroma is nice, lots of nice lager yeast, bitter hops, and burnt roasty malts. the mouth is very full and creamy, even for a swartzbier. a very nice offering, i would hope that they would bottle this as it’s a nice unique session beer! i personally like it better than the london tavern mild in that regard.

Sample at brewpub. Dark with amber hue and minimal tan head. Nose of malts, coffee, with a little bit of chocolate. Nice brew, good taste.
