Enjoyed this at the windward tavern... Poured a dark rich mahogany color, and had a 2 finger cream colored head.
Smelled of some sweet malty notes, roasted grains and coffee I n the background. Tasted much like it smelled and it was quite enjoyable! Would drink this again and considering its so local, gotta love it!!!

Not many schwarzbiers brewed by American craft breweries. This is definitely one
Of the Better ones I've had. Nice milk chocolate and coffee notes on the nose and taste. Easy drinking and flavorful. Can't ask for much more out of this style.

This a great example of the style. Malty, toasty, a tiny hint of smoke, faint bready and sweet malts. Clean crisp dry finish, medium bodied with good carbonation. Refreshing balanced and flavorful. So on point for the style.

A friend of mine who lives in Point Pleasant gave me two bottles of this to try.

Appearance: Dark brown, almost black.

Smell: Slightly roasty, a little bit of chocolate. Not much hops.

Taste: Similar to the taste. The hops aren't noticeable but the overall flavor of the beer is mild as a schwarzbier should be.

Mouthfeel: Relatively lLight in body; not Coors-light light, more like Yeungling.

Overall: A decent session beer, nice to have on a cool fall night. As long as you don't grab a bottle of this expecting to get blown away, you will not be dissapointed. Consider this a decent alternative for someone who drinks Newcastle, but wants something a little more mild.

Winter Rental Black Lager is a dark brown beer when poured into a glass. Hold it up to the light and it becomes a clear dark copper color.

It has a tan head. and left some lacing on the glass.

This is a medium bodied beer. On the light side for a dark beer.

Well carbonated with a nice mouthfeel.

It drinks easy like a like a lager should.

This is a mild beer. It has a mild roasted malt aroma. The flavor is mild too. Roasted malts with only a slight bitterness.

Overall, Winter Rental is an enjoyable beer.
