COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An easy drinking medium body lager, with just a tiny hint of roastiness and a noticeable but well-balanced hop presence thats not overly bitter. An opaque black lager that reveals deep ruby undertones in the light. Munich, Pilsner and Black Malt flavors play off the flowery, spicy notes of Noble German hops. Cold fermentation and conditioning with Bavarian lager yeast assures a clean draught with a dry finish.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2012
On tap. Pours dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma of light dark grain, faint hint of chocolate with hints of earthy hop. Flavor is much the same but unlike the description, the hop stands out more then other schwartzbiers I have had, but just a tad. Light-medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, I would have a second one!

Pours dark brown to black with a small head. Smell is smoky roast and yeasty. Toasty, roasty malt with an almost smokiness to it. Didnt have very good carbonation as it was poured on tap to a pitcher, and then my glass. Didnt care for this one and Id stick to their Pilz or Hefeweizen if given the chance.

Enjoyed on tap while waiting for wife to visit shitty shops in Gruene, TX. Color of cola, thin whispy off white head. Roasted nut aroma, pecan. Thin, pretty one dimensional on the tongue but quite refreshing on a mild Texas day, coffee, toffee, caramel. Not bad.
