COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark German lager, known as schwarbier, is dangerously quaffable. Our version of this timeless classic has a medium body and takes on flavors to dark chocolate and cocoa. The use of hops are strictly to balance this beer out, allowing the velvety malt profile to take front and center. This is a nice session beer for the winter months ahead.

Druahgt at Black Tiger, NYC. Named Southampton Schwartzbier at the pub. Dark amber, nice creamy brown/beige head. Malty aroma, some chocolate. Malty fruity flavor, quite hoppy to be a schwarzbier. Some grass and some metal balancing the malty profile.

Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Draft at dba. Sturdy, big bubbled tan head. Aroma has classic sweet malts and spicy, fresh hops. First taste is cocoa along with mild but tasty chocolate. Very smooth mouthfeel and a as good of a beer for the style that’s out there.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Tap at Barcade: Pours a cola brown with a dense, creamy tan head. Nice toasted malt nose. Milky and rich with a dark grain bread touch. The body is creamy and fluffy. Nice malt depth to the flavor. Soft, roasted and mildly smoky. Apparent German malts give it a dark bread-like, chewy body. Very mild cocoa is apparent as it warms and it has a light coffee bitterness in the finish. A nice Schwarzbier.

Slipstream (2612) - USA - FEB 18, 2008
Growler. Dark brown brew with a foamy head - looks like Coca-Cola. Sweet, yeasty aroma. A mildly sweet beer with a little roastiness and mellow chocolate malt. Pleasant, but not very exciting.

3.7
Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2008
10th rating! Woo Hoo! Pours a nice dark brown. Aroma is roasted malts. Flavor is slightly coffee/chocolate (somewhere between the two). This beer is definitely worth the effort and anyone from the NYC area should try it when they head out to the brewpub.

3.8
JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Very dark brown colour with a thick sticky tan head.. Aroma is great, sweet rich milk chocolate. Soft noble hop aroma and a nice light herbal chracter. Flavour is lightly toasty and nutty with a soft chocolate and a light crisp bitterness. Soft lingering roast and a bit of sulfury yeastiness on the back. Lingering bready yeastiness in the middle. Silky palate and a very fine texture. Great brew.

3.3
pforei (338) - USA - FEB 16, 2008
Growler from Whole Foods. Dark brown, decent head. Aroma is all malt; sweet and toasty caramel and pumpernickel. Tasting reveals powdered cocoa as well. Mild. Medium bodied but on the thin side. Soft mouthfeel. There is no bitterness, or dryness or off flavors at the end; the malt taste simply diminishes and the beer peacefully fades rather than finishes.
