Philadelphia Brewing Company "Schwarzinger"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, inkjet coding information is smudged and illegible

Impressive! They've nailed the dark maltiness of a schwarzbier with a light bit of fudge-like chocolate and the suggestion of smoky roastiness without actually going there. Just a touch too much and a schwarzbier becomes something else but they've kept it reigned in, and remarkably well-balanced. Non-traditionally, they've used some citrusy hops which throw it off for me, but I'm sure others will love that. I could see this taking on the almost fanatical following that Philadelphia once had for Yuengling's Black & Tan, and if they can put it on tap at or near the cost of Kenzinger I have no doubt that'll happen.

The pour was dark black with a tan or khaki colored head. The aroma off the out gave off a bit of hops, maybe a hint of roasted coffee. The taste was very good! It had roasted malt character, smokiness, a touch of roasted coffee and dark chocolate hints. It finished a little on the dry side. I would say this was a great beer for the FALL or WINTER seasons. The roasted and smoky flavors work really nicely in this beer. Another great beer from my hometown brewery!

Sweet a new beer from Philadelphia Brewing Company! Found it in the mix six section at the House of 1,000 beers.
A - Deep dark beautiful blackness with just a 1/4 inch of head that fades to a sticky ring.
S - Light smoked malts, some cocoa, and roastiness.
T - One smooth Swartz. It has mild smoked malts, smooth chocolate like malts, and a bit of sunk in the finish that leaves a bit of dryness. On par with the style love it.
M - Medium bodied not watery, slick and smooth.

Overall I would consider getting this again hell I would buy a case. It's tasty!
