Notes/Commercial Description:
Dark and mysterious, with an intriguing wisp of smoke, a chimney sweep has long been considered a source of good luck. Schell’s Chimney Sweep draws its inspiration from these lucky individuals and the rich dark lagers of Upper Franconia in Germany. Expect a black lager with a roasty maltiness, sturdy hop bitterness and an underlying subtle smokiness.

Chimney Sweep was swept into a nonic pint. Chim-chim-chi-roo!

A fluffy mass of ecru foam billows to about two-fingers in width, atop a dark brown body with solid streaks of crimson.

The nose softly expresses some wheat, milk chocolate, and barely there roastiness. Some estery notes swirl in and out as well, different. This nose just needs to be bold!

Oh, so much better! Nice to meet you smoked dark lager! The palate is engulfed by smoked ham straight away, revealing the smoked quality that the beer drinker was so hopefully expecting in the aroma profile. The finish expresses a roasted quality with some caramel malt sweetness. That sweetness contributes a milk chocolate note kiss that hangs long after the swallow.

Chimney Sweep feels heavier where medium bodied beers are concerned, creaminess providing a nice lift off the tongue. A crisp lager that goes down smooth.

Chimney Sweep mucks about on the nose for sure, too soft and not smokey at all. The palate finally introduces the smokiness and roasted qualities, with a pleasant splash of sweetness. Again, the flavors could be more bold, but try to drink this and not enjoy it!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance - A dark brown / garnet red color. A strong pour yielded a 2.5 finger headed. Not much in the way of lacing the head dissipated quickly

Smell - The isn't much aroma with this one. Bready / roasted malts. Baker's chocolate

Taste - Roasted malts, a slight hint of smoke / char, and hint of bitterness from the hops. The finish is a nice toffee which lingers on the tongue for awhile.

Mouthfeel - Thin to medium body and low to medium carbonation.

Overall - Pretty decent beer but was hoping for more smoke

I think this beer is misclassified; it should be a smoked beer. To me there's nothing "subtle" about the smokiness. Poured at a good temperature with a modest light tan head that soon settled to a large island, ring, and some lace. Color is a clear mahogany with some tiny bubble trails. Aroma is smoke dominated and then malt and a bit of spice. Flavor's like nose plus has some tart. Fairly dry. Body is slightly thin, carbonation ok. Finish is like flavor, some change to medicinal, gradual taper, not really for me. Wish it had been a traditional schwarzbier

Had the stocker find this in the back of the Kenosha Woodman's -- lucky they had it, I don't think they're too aware of everything Schell brews.

A -- Clear, deep ruby to chestnut brown with a firm, long-lasting, light tan head.

S -- Lightly smoky character, mildly bready malts. Pretty light aroma overall. Some good toasted breadiness comes thru with warming.

T -- Smoked malt hits the palate first with a mildly astringent character, but not offensive at all -- folding into a nearly sweet bready character and finishing with a mellow roastiness and lightly spicy hops for accent. The roastiness and smokiness linger nicely balanced in the aftertaste -- even some mild dark fruit characters. A Rauchbier character akin to Schlenkerla's Ur Bock.

M -- Mouthfeel is smooth and slick with a medium-robust body that finishes lightly dry.

O -- Overall this is a great seasonal brew for the cold weather months. Not the typical spiced, strong seasonal, but very flavorful and robust to stand up to the winter air.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Chimney Sweep pours to a dark garnet color with a well- filtered, see through body. The nose on this beer is one of light roasted malt, a hint of coffee, and light smoke. The tan- colored foam looks nice and does manage to hold its own.

This beer has a flavor profile that is about what you expect based on the nose. Flavors of roasted malt, coffee, and smoke are certainly present, and they are matched with flavors of chocolate, caramel, and some dark fruit. The body of the beer is medium and the beer finishes clean.

This is a nice effort for a schwarzbier and I noticed that it is less bitter than others of this style. Some of these black lagers are so bitter that I can tolerate them only in small doses. But Schell took things a little easier with its version of this German specialty brew and this is evident by the moderate to low hop bitterness and more easy- drinking nature.

Chimney Sweep is a good, medium bodied black lager and a beer definitely worthy of a try. It’s considered a seasonal brew, but it is bottled and sold over both the Fall and Winter so there is plenty of time to seek it out and give it sample. Give it a shot- you won’t be disappointed.

Small light brown head settles into a lice lacing above a clear reddish brown colored beer.

Sweet roasted toffee, caramel, dark almost burnt chocolate, a french liqueur aroma and more.

Dark roasted malts with toffee, a bit of dark bakers chocolates, caramelized sugars come through in the taste.

A light dryish aftertaste that brings with it some of the darker aspects of the taste with this medium bodied drink.

Surprisingly good, I had a few Schell's beers that really weren't that good.

This is an old friend that I am just getting around to reviewing.

Poured into snifter.

A Black. Thick creamy tan head remains. Lacing follows down the glass.

S Sweet dark fruit. Smokey. Chocolate. Roasted malt and almonds. Nutmeg.

T Awesome! Roasted malts right up front. Sweetness (maybe some plum or cherry). Subdued spice. Smoke but not that messy in your face smoke that some beers of the style have. A hint of bitterness follows.

M Pretty full. Nice and creamy. Finish is smooth. The burnt/roastiness lingers.

O Great beer. Schell's puts out some top-notch stuff and this may be my favorite of their's. They stay true to the style but still find a way to expand and leave their personal mark.

Schell's chimney sweep

A - pours a deep chocolatey brown with about two fingers worth of light tan foam on top.

S - nose is a bit muted but still quite pleasant. Very malt forward. Notes of bakers chocolate and mocha with grindy city roast coffee around the edges.

T - silky smooth flavors. Dusty cocoa, dark chocolate syrup and grainy cereal up front. Notes of coffee-like bitterness enter in the middle creating a balance to the malty sweetness. A hint of herbal bitterness toward the backend. Finish is bittersweet with the touch of the herbal hop character.

M-medium bodied. Silky smooth texture. Medium-high carbonation.

O - nice schwartzbeer. I have always liked this style and this is a pleasant american version. Would definitely drink again.

Got a couple single bottles to try . Didn't know it was a schwarzbier until I looked at b.a.
Definetly not at the level of Monchshof / Kostritzer but an ok American take on the style ...
I'd say it's a good session schwarzbier seeing as how it's just 5.2% abv .
Probably good with roasted meat and other hearty dishes . Probably a good cheddar cheese pairing, as well, something tells me .
A fairly thin consistency unlike its German counter-parts which seem to have more soul and heft to them .
A slighty caramel roasty aroma when sniffed .
Taste is roasted malt lager darkness .
Mouthfeel is perhaps its best attribute . A nice rounded slightly fruity thing going on .
I'd be in no hurry to probably ever buy this again but , oh well .

Black in the glass though some light gets through around the edges, rendering a slightly brownish clear highlight. Thin layer of soft offwhite foam across the surface, that parts fairly soon without much lacing to speak of. MInor sudsy spots after a swirl and sip.

Softly roasty aroma, sweet fruity plum, carob or cocoa. Dry taste, less sweet than the aroma lets on, though there is a slight amount. Dry cocoa, light unsweetened chocolate, dried dark fruit. Light and drinkable, though not without substantial flavor. Drinks like a nice porter more than a schwarzbier, and that's a good thing.

It's near black with some nut brown hues below a fine creamy toasted sheet. Smells nice and roasty with soil, char, toast, some prunes and cocoa. Flavor follows suit with some nice roasted malts, dry soil, some hints of cocoa and leather - a really nice beer. Nice light body with a crispy carbonation and a wet finish (surprisingly). I like this beer quite a bit.

Glass: Tulip

Chimney Sweep is an excellent, sessionable black lager from Schell's that balances Munich and roasted malt with caramel and cracker-like bread. The hops only accentuate each flavor character, making this all the more enticing. With a fairly low ethanol content and pleasantly complex roasted-sweet character, Chimney Sweep is an excellent session beer for the fall through spring months.

Pours a generous 2cm head of khaki tan foam, retention at about two minutes, well above average. The head declines to a thin cap atop the body of the beer for the duration of the drink. Lacing is excellent, a sheet of beige foam wrapped around the entire inside of the glass. The body is very dark brown to black, with light bringing out slight amber brown highlights around the edges. Carbonation is not visible through the opaque beer, but it can be seen moving along the sides of the glass at fair quantity and pace.

Aroma is of moderate intensity, with scents of caramel, lightly roasted malt, and slight hints of smoke, all with a cracker and bread-like backbone. It's almost as if someone made saltines from dark and caramel malts. Quite nice for this highly sessionable dark lager.

The beer's flavors are best described by caramel, rich bread, slightly acrid roasted malt, light chocolate and smoke. Tasting opens with a nearly bock-like breadiness and sweetness of caramel malt, but one that's been influenced by chocolate, Munich, and smoked malt as well as all these malts lend their associated flavors to this lager. Mid-palate finds tastes of rich caramel malt, Munich malt, baker's chocolate, slightly acrid cracker-like flavors, and smoke. Slight European hop bitterness accentuates the light roast of the malt. Back of palate finds increased flavors of roasted and Munich malt, with underlying caramel and bread-like sweetness with continued mild bitterness. Aftertaste is quite substantial, though fading, of crackers and lightly roasted malt, actually quite delicious.

The body is medium-light in weight, with carbonation of medium intensity, leading to a surprisingly full, foamy, smooth, and creamy mouthfeel. Closes semi-dry with a bit of astringency from the dark malts and hops used.

Pours a big, soft head that is light tan that leaves nice lacing. Mostly smoke in the nose, a touch of the acidic schwarzbier in the back. Black. Starts acidic, with notes of chocolate, but a building smokey quality wells up from behind this. A touch of hop bitterness. The smoke flavor builds as the malt middle takes the center stage. As always, Schell's lagers are velvety smooth with great carbonation!

Overall, this is pretty good. It's a pretty good Schwarzbier, but the addition of the smoke makes me really enjoy it!

Enjoyed from a bottle into a silo glass

A: Black right away, deep ruby/ amber in the light with one finger of a cream colored head and a small amount of bubbles

S: Roasted malts with a smokey charcoal grill tone

T: Classic Schell's malt forwardness,roasted malts, little bit of chocolate, and a nice smokiness like camp fire or cook outs.

M: light with less carbonation.

O: It's a good black lager, nice balance, not to smokey for my taste, would go great with a burger or brat. It's warm smokey, clean and dry. The mouth could be a little more for me and the flavor isn't so bold. But it's another solid well crafted beer from Schell's.

Schell's Emerald Rye Lager, August Schell Brewing Company, New Ulm, Minnesota. Best by January 3, 2013. Beyond that, no other information. Gratefully, too, no gobbledgook.

So, then, let's crack 'er open. And see what we find.

First off, what's "emerald" about it? This is no green beer. It's poetic license, the green standing for hops, maybe? It's a clear, rich, amber brew, close to crimson. Sizeable, cream-toned head sits atop, leaving lace.

Aroma: Hops are here, and grow louder with time. Grassy, grapefruity, lime and lemon, …lovely, lovely stuff.

Taste: Spicy rye malt greets the tongue first, tasting like liquid pumpernickel. Which hops are hanging on top? Can't tell, don't know, but it's keeping things tasty. Some caramel malt flavors shine through, a trickle of cocoa, traces of toffee.
Medium-bodied, but fully flavored. Sturdy mouthfeel. Solid. Absolutely solid. Soft, malty finish, hops hang in there through it all, without sticking out or making a scene.

This one's a unique effort from August Schell. It fits no particular style, and doesn't try to …there's nothing to say but, "it is how it is." And it's sessional and delicious. That fits into their wheelhouse, as people like to say these days.

Mmmm, mmm, good beer and you can drink it.

A: deep caramel brown, medium head

S: Lots of chocolate on the nose, smoke, with dare I say, a hint of very high-quality peppered beef jerky(!) -no joke...

T: Direct reflection of the nose; chocolate and dried peppered beef. This is my second try of this beer, and I gotta say, it's far better than first. Maybe it's because I'm using a pilsener glass instead of a basic pint, maybe it's because I'm consciously trying it again for the first time, either way, it's really showing it's true colors here. To clarify, the peppered beef comparison should not suggest that this beer is spiced, it's not. I just find it highly reminiscent of the smell and overall flavor of the finest beef jerky I've ever had with a wonderfully subtle smoke quality.

M: Full-bodied and creamy; plays well with the smokiness.

O: This is a perfect example of what Schell's is good at; making incredible lager beers that drink like ales. If you've never tried Schell's, this is an GREAT place to start.

Always happy to pick up a single of a new Schell's beer to find out if it's the next Emerald Rye (i.e. excellent). 12 oz. bottle.

Pour is about 87% schwarz, with mit ein bisschen rot...I'm going to have to brush up on my German before I hit the Rhein this summer. Nose is interesting. The first wave is all smoke, campfire smoke to be specific, & to be even more specific, the precise smell that sticks in your clothes the next morning. Ham. Smoke masks anything else that might be hanging around.

Chimney Sweep is one of those smoked beers that leans right into the hog. Too much smoke turns this into a bacon-fest; I read the reviews & hoped most were accurate ("a touch of smoke") but this is like standing in the middle of a barn full of pigs. That are all on spits. While the barn is burning. Smoke overwhelms any other subtleties.

Not a fan of liquid smoke. A rare Schell's miss for me. Not a good beer.

A: Dark brown body with an off-white head of suds. Good retention.
S: Rich malty aroma. Chocolate, licorice and lager yeast. Smells almost as good as some of my favorite doppelbocks.
T: In contrast to the sweeter (suggesting) nose, flavor packs an assertive initial smokeyness. Not rauchbeer level, but more than a hint. A big dose of black and roasted malts follow the smoke, ending with a bit of sweetness that seems to pick up as it warms.
M: Body is on the medium to heavy side with full, fine carbonation. Works well with the flavors. Despite sweetness, it still maintains a fairly dry feel.

Enjoying how this beer packs a dense load of flavors without being a huge, highly alcoholic imperial. A great beer in a style lacking for great, widely available options in the U.S. This is up there with Black Bavarian.

A - Wow is this a dark Schwarbier! Pitch black like a stout or imperial with a full inch of opaque colored head. Great sticky lacing too.

S - Smell is rather nice some mild roast and grains, yet it's much lighter than German counterparts.

T - Much more balanced with chocolate malts, some toasted grains, mild skunk (which is not that harsh) and some roasted malt giving it a mild smoky finish. Not great but not bad.

M - Much drier than I expected with a light to medium body.

Overall it's not that great but an above average take on the style. Worth picking up for a cheap Schwarbier.

Common Schell's lager aroma (it must be the water as it is unique and frequent). Darker malt aroma softly swirls around softly.
Attractive and classic looking lager. Brilliantly clear. Full rich dark head. Deep garnet colors. Nice.
Full malt flavor with hints of smokiness rolling through the palate. Mmmmm. Reasonably drying and holding a quite long finish (esp. for a lager). Just enough hop presence in both flavor and cutting of some of the sweetness.
Classically rich lager Schell's beer. Helps smooth this out, but does limit drinkability somewhat, although I could do two fairly easily. Soft and full carbonation.
This warms nicely too- the caramel flavors start to show through without any excess sweetness. Seems to hold some ale qualities, but clearly a lager, and an enjoyable one too.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very dark nut brown with decent clarity and visible effervescence. Pours a foamy two finger tan head.

Aroma: Smoke and charred oak. There may be other aromas here but the smoke covers them up.

Taste: Starts with a mellow mix of medium to dark malts with a bit of a bready flavor. There is some hop bitterness along with a slight grassy character. In the second half the bitterness increases and the flavor becomes very smokey. The finish is more of the same with a feeling like you've inhaled the fumes from a wet bonfire pit. It's an interesting flavor but there are other beers that achieve the same effect with more balance and a more refined smoke flavor. At 5.2% ABV it doesn't skimp on flavor, it is decently robust.

Mouthfeel: Just below medium in body with lots of carbonation that adds to the bitterness giving the palate a bit of a punch right before the finish. Average drinkability but the smokey flavor makes it a one and done scenario.

Final Thoughts: If it's offered as part of a variety six-pack or you can find one bottle it would be worth the purchase. However, I couldn't see myself drinking more than one of these in an evening. If you like smoked beers (and lagers) then this would be one to 'tick' for you. Would I drink it again? Doubtful.

Poured from the bottle.

Dark, reddish-black in colour with a tan head. Smells like a standard black-ale. Subtle hop nose with a fair bit of smokiness. The taste was much more mellow than expected. It was malty and smokey with a clean finish.

Would I buy it again? Probably.
