Notes/Commercial Description:
This light flavored black lager is our version of a classic schwarzbier. This schwarzbier has moderate malt flavors that finish clean and sweet, and are balanced out nicely with just a hint of bitterness. The appearance is very dark brown, with a tan-colored head. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to medium-high carbonation. Black Bear is truly a beer that will surprise the drinker. It is overall dark, but very pleasantly sweet with no harshness that most would expect from a dark beer. This beer is available seasonally, so try it when you can.

A - Poured out a black color with a small, tan head of foam. It left thin trails of lace.

S - Good toasty aroma with nuttiness and caramel.

T - It was roasty with caramel, chocolate and a mild piney bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a nice schwarzbier.
