Squatters Black Forest Schwarzbier has a thick, foamy, creamy, beige head, a dark brown appearance, and very heavy lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of dark malt, brown bread crust, and standardized "beer smell". Taste is of creamy, dark malt, brown bread crust, sweetness, and subdued bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit slick, and Squatters Black Forest Schwarzbier finishes crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable. I can see why this beer has won seven major medals.

Cery dark in color. A tan head on this one.

Smells like roasty malts and nuts! Along with some spice.

This drinks like a mild stout. Very creamy and delicious. Chocolate, toast, char, and nuttiness.

Creamy and full mouth surprisingly. Not like a heavy stout or barleywine, though.

Overall a wonderful beer! Like a robust porter without all the extra alcohol.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Color was really gorgeous dark brown/black with a thick, tan, head. It smelled of malt, malt, and more malt. Pretty much the same on taste, lots of malt with maybe a hint of sweetness (toffee?). It finishes with a nice roasty flavor. The Color makes you think that it might be fairly heavy in the mouth, but it does have that medium-light Black Lager feel. All in all it's a very nice beer that compares very favorably to other black lagers that I've had.

Pours a dark brown color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger off-white head, some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some toffee notes. The taste is sweet, malty, with some toffee. Medium body, kinda crisp/smooth. Drinkable, not a bad brew.
