Notes/Commercial Description:
We are pleased to share our innovative black Pilsner, Pils-Noir. Made from Pearl (Winter) barley, malted for us by Munton’s, CaraMalt and Crystal malts, prepared using our unique, husk-free milling process. We then naturally darken the beer using the classic Czech technique of decoction mashing. Hopped with Oregon Willamette, Mt. Hood and Washington hops, and finished with noble Czech Saaz for a fine aroma.

I had this on tap while visiting the tour. Draft poured into a plastic cup

Dark appearance similar to a schwartzbier but had the aroma and flavor of a pilsner

This is very interesting just because of how unique it is. SBCs other year-round beers are very mediocre but I really enjoyed the pils-noir since it stood out among their other offerings.

A- Dark brown with a few soapy looking bigger bubbles.
S- All biscuity malt in the smell.
T - Taste is really pretty good, just a little hop flavor no bite at all.
M- Definitely on the the weak watery side.
O- Probably a good dead of summer refresher
