Notes / Commercial Description:
We are pleased to share our innovative black Pilsner, Pils-Noir. Made from Pearl (Winter) barley, malted for us by Munton’s, CaraMalt and Crystal malts, prepared using our unique, husk-free milling process. We then naturally darken the beer using the classic Czech technique of decoction mashing. Hopped with Oregon Willamette, Mt. Hood and Washington hops, and finished with noble Czech Saaz for a fine aroma.

Not a bad "go-to" beer.

Dark malt pils. Not exceptionally malty nor exceptionally hoppy. If you like dark lagers this is for you to add to the beer you had. I will drink it again.

I had this on tap while visiting the tour. Draft poured into a plastic cup

Dark appearance similar to a schwartzbier but had the aroma and flavor of a pilsner

This is very interesting just because of how unique it is. SBCs other year-round beers are very mediocre but I really enjoyed the pils-noir since it stood out among their other offerings.
