COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Schwartz came in at 9.5%abv with 56IBUs, and is just the smooth, mellow dark beer we need at a time like this! The very subtle roast compliments the malt very well, and finishes nice, smooth and dry.

This had a dark opaque brown body with a creamy tan head and left sheets of "lace" in its wake. The aroma had roasty dark malt with a touch of dark srone fruit. The flavor was lightly roasty, had some plums, a hint of licorice, and a moderate woody bitterness. Dry finish. Pretty decent.
