This German-style black lager has a deep color and gently roasted flavors balanced by an understated hoppiness. A thirst-quenching version of dark beer. A 2008 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal Winner in the German Schwarzbier category.

Can. A- Roasty, malty, slightly tart. A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Sour, subtle cocoa, malty, dry. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, sour finish. O- Pretty sure this one was slightly infected because the sourness came certainly unexpected. However, it wasn’t a bad sour, it actually was fair. Not good, but drinkable.

Pretty good example if a schwartzbier. Lager like good carbonation. Light roast malts and English type of hops. Very clean finish.

December 22nd, 2012 - Now here’s a beer worth the brewery visit by itself, and GABF judges agree. Dark and black on the body, and ringed with a halo of cream colored foam on top, there’s not much special happening just with looks. But a curious nose can immediately recognize that something good is lurking in that glass. Smoked peat, barbecue, and pulled pork blend to form a savory, salivary-inducing aroma. The taste is a bit stranger, somewhat carbonated and a thinner palate that seems at odds with the flavors, but the tastes are all there, borrowed from the aroma, and filled with the same meaty, meal-like tastes that make this stand out from the other Wynkoop tasters in line.

Dark malt, slight roast aroma. Very light bodied and smooth across the tongue. Moderate roast taste that turns bitter.

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Medium brown, thin head, toasty aroma, a bit thin, touch of fruit. Ok, maybe a bit thin, crackery, dry finish.

Beer poors black, with deep ruby color when held to the light. Nice tan head and good clarity. Aroma is roasty with floral, earthy hops. No off flavors and low esters. Beer has a nice smooth roast, light sweetness, and non overpowering hop bitterness. Creamy palate and VERY smooth. Overall great beer. I’ll definately get this again.

Tap. Pours murky mahogany, medium creamy tan head, dissipates slowly, great lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, slightly smoky, toffee, black bread. Flavor is about the same, lightly smoky, bready, light sweet, not much bitterness. Not a bad beer.
