COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sustenance Black Beer, classically referred to as a Schwartz beer, is a dark American lager brewed in the spring. Soft and sweet on the palate, the roasted, dark caramel grains lend to satisfying drinking experience, while lager yeast creates a refreshing thirst-quenching sensation. This combination provides a rich, full-flavored, light bodied brew.

Holmen1 (6471) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
Flaske hos Ole Anders mai-13: fin aroma av røstet malt. Kort skum. Syrlig rugsmak, i tillegg til tobakk og mørke bær. God, men med en viss reservasjon. I litt større mengde en smaking vil den nok gi sustenance.
