Nearly opaque dark brown color. Delicate, attractive aromas of chocolate toffee and caramel mocha latte with an oily, crisp, finely carbonated, fruity medium-full body and a warming, layered, long peppery greens, roasted spiced nuts, cocoa, and earth finish. A sumptuously delicious, robust and elegant schwarzbier that is sure to satisfy.

Black beers, or schwartzbiers, are dark brown to black in color and range in alcohol from 4-5%. These beers feature a bitter chocolate, roasted malt note and a rounded character. Hop accents are generally low. Black beers originated in eastern Germany, but are brewed in markets ranging from Japan to the US today. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Samuel Adams Black Lager, Guinness Black Lager and Rogue Chateau Rogue Dirtoir Black Lager.
