What the brewers say

“Our take on a traditional German black lager.”

What our panel thought

“Mild herbal-piney hop aroma; lightly smoky, roast coffee, toast. Assertive flavors, predominantly coffee and toast malt. Hops are big and out of character; good backing bitterness, though herbal-minty flavor is unusual. Finishes slightly sweet. A hint of burnt character lingers. Enjoyable, but the only thing schwarz is the color.”

What our editors thought

“Pillowy head is alluring. Aroma is bits of burnt toffee, cacao nib, cappuccino, mint. Those also express in the sip, with a chocolatey-bitter edge across layers of rich caramel. Finishes crisp with a touch of hops.”
