COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t be fooled by the name—meaning “black” in Czech, “Cherny” refers to the color of this German-style Schwarzbier brewed true to the regional style of northern Bavaria. Dark roasted & aromatic malts combined with minimal hopping creates a wonderful beer with subtle hints of coffee and chocolate.

Midvale, UT - on tap at the brewpub. Deep dark brown pour, thick off-white head, nice lace. Fresh lake aroma with hints of chocolate. Flavor has some licorice notes, some brown sugar, some black earth and a brief hint of chocolate. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Menu says is is a schwarzbier....but after 56 ratings - I’m sure one of the locals would have changed it by now.

Can. The look is dark, brown to black in color, and has a tan head. The taste is malty, roast, toast, burnt, and ok. The smell is the same.

Can thanks to Sledutah. This one surprised me. Pours a deep brown black with a light tan head that leaves an intricate lacing. Huge roasted notes of coffee and some caramel notes. Taste is slightly sweet and light. There is a slight tang to it. High carbonation levels and lighter body. Very easy drinking.

Not much flavor mild for a dark beer. Good head okay. Better than many but yeast is priority ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can in a stem glass. Pours very dark brown with a thick, beige head. Aroma of bitter dark malts and water. Flavor the same, with metal and grossness. Average texture. I feel bad for people in Utah, especially those who think this is what good beer is and give it high ratings.

Pours an almost black color with thin off white head. Aromas of roast, coffee, chocolate, and molasses. Tastes of medium sweetness and a light bitterness to finish it off. This beer really surprised me. I enjoyed this beer contrary to many other reviews on here.

pushkinwow (2895) - Ottawa, CANADA - FEB 13, 2013
12oz can from Douglass88. Dark mahogany with a light mocha head that mostly disappears. Pleasant roasted malt, faint coffee grinds. little musty, little sweet. Moderate body, mild carbonation, faintly sweet, becomes a little malty, flat and one dimensional on the finish which takes away from what would be an otherwise tasty beer.
