COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Shopping for Sam Adams is alot like sifting through the sales rack at a department store...mostly shit, but if you’re patient you can find a thing or two that’s worth buying. I generally do not expect much from any lager...with that said, I also feel that most lagers smell like fuckin shit. This smelled like a Heineken Dark, but was barren of the skunky flavor that most lagers have inherently...this went down easy and quickly...another good session brew from a company that makes sooooo many shitty beers...

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.

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

Clean beer. Some chocolate and coffee with a mild bitter finish. Mix pack fodder but pretty tasty.

Deep Brown color with a small beige head. Caramel, roasted malt, vanilla in the aroma. Initial taste is bold and roasty with a hint of vanilla. Aftertaste has hints of coffee. Body is a smooth medium and carbonation is lively. The first Sam Adams in a sample pack that I've enjoyed in with a while!
