COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dont be fooled by the namemeaning 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.

Ernest (7558) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (malt syrup, wort, roasted grain, husks). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Shockingly poor compared to the wonderful Czech pils. How does the same brewery make both? Raw and dirty and rather sour too...couldnt even stomach a 2oz sample.

bytemesis (7772) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 16, 2016
They are calling this a Schwarzbier now on their menu, FWIW. Tap. Pours deep clear Ruby black, medium beige head, good lacing. Aroma is super roasty, lactose, a bit ashy. Flavor has a touch too much sweetness, light bitterness. A bit odd. Stale coffee? Light plus body.

solidfunk (8358) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 10, 2016
I havent had a lot of dunkler bocks but this isnt quite what I look for in a beer. Tangy odd aroma with copper. Amber pour with good head and lacing. Bottle.
