COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true TBK original, we kick this German-style black lager up a couple notches. Big clean malty flavor with just a hint of roasted malt. "May the Schwartz be with you!"

Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2011

Dogbrick (14331) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a dark brown color with a medium thin beige head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Roasty malt and spiced hops aroma. Medium body with the roasted malt characted of a Schwarzbier with an assertive hops presence. Touches of coffee as well. The finish is roasted coffee and hops with a lingering bitterness left behind. I like the sweetness of a good Scharzbier and evidently the "Imperialization" of this beer meant more hops. While an interesting result it doesn’t really deserve the Schwarz moniker, it’s something else entirely.
