Style: Schwarzbier

Notes / Commercial Description:
Traditionally known in Germany as Schwarzbier, this Black Lager is great for casual beer lovers and beer explorers alike. It has a delicately roasted aroma with subtle hints of dark chocolate. The slow, cool fermentation lends itself to a smooth, full body with a crisp finish. Hints of coffee and stone fruit round out the center, providing a more delicate flavor than its robust, dark ale counterparts. Enjoy this wonderful German bier. Prost!

Chocolate malt, smooth and crisp. Not a lot stands out but still good.

On nitro tap at Angel City Brewery in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, nut, and slight perfume aromas. Taste is much the same with toast and char flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but nothing very memorable in my opinion.
