COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An easy drinking medium body lager, with just a tiny hint of roastiness and a noticeable but well-balanced hop presence that’s 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.

On tap at Whip-In during RBWG 2012. Pours a dark amber with a small beige head with sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a raisin malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet malt flavor and light dry finish. A decent schwarzbier from Live Oak.

2/25/12. On tap during RBWG 2012. Clearish black pour with a small tan head. The aroma is a bit plain - somewhat watery but with a hint of roast and butter. Light toast in the flavor with definite butter. Diacetyl? Eh.

Clearish black with an average beige head. Aroma of not much but some roast. Mild taste of roast and ash. Thin. Nothing here. Didn’t even finish the pint.

Pours dark brown to black with a small head. Smell is smoky roast and yeasty. Toasty, roasty malt with an almost smokiness to it. Didn’t have very good carbonation as it was poured on tap to a pitcher, and then my glass. Didn’t care for this one and I’d stick to their Pilz or Hefeweizen if given the chance.
