This rating is of the limited release Black and Gold swarzbier that Sam Adams released on tap only during the 2013-14 Bruins season.

Excellent example of a black lager or schwartzbier. Probably my favorite beer from Sam Adams.

I will have to check out the bottled schwartzbier and speak to the brewers to see if it is the same beer. I doubt it though, as they claimed black and gold was specifically brewed for the occasion.

No listing for black and gold.
