On tap at Bailey's , $2.50/10 oz pour. This isn't a true schwarzbier - it's brewed with ale yeast - but I don't think I could categorize this any other way.
Pouring a very dark brown with a dense, brown head with excellent retention and lacing, this is a gorgeous beer. The nose is heavy on the roast. with a blend of chocolate, coffee and roasted grains tempered by a mild sweetness and firming hoppiness. The hops aren't as aggressive as they are in some of the fresh German schwarzbiers (especially the ones that are minty/leafy), but very pleasant. A fruity yeast character is apparent as well. These flavors are replicated on the palate. A firming grainy bitterness up front with a milky, creamy sweetness, this has flavors of chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt acidity and a mild hop character. Drying on the finish with a decidedly fruity yeast character, this beer is medium-light in body, creamy on the palate and thoroughly enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap
