This traditional lager is medium in body with a deep roasted character. Its dark color and rich malty flavor come from specially roasted caramel and chocolate malts. This brew is lightly hopped with Noble Bavarian hops for a soft spiciness and a smooth clean finish. Cheers!

Deep dark reddish-brown almost black pour with thin light tan head. Aroma is a bit light, chocolate or toffee and some light roasted malt. Taste is quite malty as well. Slighty bitter coffee or chocolate flavor with some bready notes. Nothing special, but definitely not a horrible brew by any means either.

I am a Porter, Stouts, Dark lager drinker and honestly this beer is one of the best ones I've drink. I love that it is full body but it is malty and smooth. It is great with palate and it can be very refreshing as well. Over all one of my favorite beers I've had and I'm drinking a New Belgium 1554 Black Lager right now.

Smell is very light of darker malt...taste is a toasty malt, smooth with low diversity...but a good medium bold flavor...decent

From Sept 2005 Very nice Schwarzbier. Poured into a glass at just below room temp. Head dissipated fairly quickly, with just a fine lacing on the side. Pleasant smell of roastiness followed by excellent roasty flavour with hints of chocolate. Plenty of complexity and still a smooth drinker. A very good candidate for a session beer, imho.

Bottle. Here's to Samuel Adams, equal to none. Pretty good. Malty. Toasty. Nice mouthfeel.

Oooh, a new style yay! It pours slightly opaque black with a thin head. The aroma is cocoa powder and smokiness. The taste is more chocolatey than smoky and it has a pleasant smooth palate. Overall pretty decent and a nice change of pace in a variety pack. Good for hanging out with the family, playing fun party games, and watching a particularly deranged Nathan for You.

An enjoyable light but roasty beer. Smooth, medium body. Super tasty and drinkable.

Not what I expected. When I saw the word Shwarzbier I was expecting a bitter coffee soy sauce taste like Guinness stout, but it's actually light, sweet and drinkable. Taste of toast and malt and slight taste of chocolate.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2017 Bottle. It poured a cola color with a beige head that disipated quickly. The aroma is light cocoa with some smokiness. The tastes has a minimal amount of sweetness to it. Very drinkable.

Poured from the bottle. Thin white head. Black in color. Aroma is the only disappointment in this beer. Deep flavors that don't fill you up. I would definitely purchase and drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
