Schwarzenheimer. Dave's BrewFarm. Growler purchased about 12 days ago, held up terrifically.

Appearance: solid black, under a hefty cap of cocoa-tan head. Looks great.

Aromatics: big roasted malt, minor hops, a little bit of cocoa and coffee. Nice.

Taste: full bodied, full flavored, rich, warm, malty, chocolatey, and, let us not forget, yum. Delicious.

I didn't have a lot to say about this one, kept the notes really simple. But, despite that, it is an impressive brew, a Schwarzbier, or black lager, that feels more like a Baltic Porter. Deep, rich, but smooth and supple. Like it lots!

From the Farmer man: "7.9% ABV, 'The Black Pils'. Pilsm Carafa III and Dark Munich malts with Perle and Sterling hops create a dark , crisp, refreshing taste sensation. Don't let the color fool you!"

Fresh swing top liter growler: Emensely dark brown pour settling a semi-glossy black base in the glass. Tall, frothy and firm browned tan foam gathers up nicley. Settling slowly to a bit of lace scattered about as sipped and a thin collar ring.

Aroma is robust but tamely set with a firm milk chocolate tone, wet graham cracker crust, and a bit of mocha ice cream.

Taste is all chocolate with exceptional nuances to dusty broken dark and milk chocolate, staying mostly milken, with a hearty, clean, wholesome goodness within the body that closes in towards a milk stout style. Yet, this is an all lager styled Schwarzbier with a ton of chocolate malt goodness.

Frothy, smooth, creamy, delicate, fullish, wholesome body with a whisper of dryness that seeps in late with just a bit of chocolate milk balls and booze soaked chocolate cupcakes, minus the frosting.

Yum! Another keeper from the Farm! Drinkably pleasureable!
