COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark ale crafted in the spirit of a German Schwarzbier, or "black beer." A blend of German Munich malt, Vienna malt and "huskless" roasted malts give this beer a subtle toastiness without creating a more harsh roasted character.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Draft. Pours nearly black with virtually no head and no lacing. Aroma and flavor are malty, roasty, with both low sweetness and bitterness. I also pick up an odd soapy texture and an almost plasticky taste. Comes across as quite flat to me. I’ll skip it next time; a shame, since I like the style.
