Notes: Schwarzbier, a black lager, is the darkest of all German-style biers (schwarz means “black” in German). Decoction mashing with 100% imported Munich and Pilsner malt in addition to de-husked roasted barley malt produces rich malt flavors of roasted coffee and chocolate, while 100% imported Perle hops from Seitz Farm in Bavaria’s famous hop-growing Hallertau Valley impart moderate bitterness to balance the rich malt character. Weeks of cold lagering with pure Bavarian lager yeast from Andechs, a German monastery brewery, creates a crisp, clean finish. This bier is naturally carbonated by CO2 produced during fermentation and conditioning.

12oz bottle from Tavour. Dark Brown pour, lasting cap of beige foam. Roasty malt aroma, nutty, light chocolate. Taste is rich roasty malts, hint of coffee, chocolate. Very light bitterness. Right on style.

On draft at 1839 Taphouse. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, khaki-colored head of foam. It left sudsy tails of lace. It smelled roasty with coffee, dark chocolate and toffee. Sweet chocolate taste with some roasted coffee flavors. Mild bitterness.
