Oh the schwarzbier… This is an under appreciated style that I happen to love. Roasted malts, even a bit of chocolate and hazelnut – really smooth and delicious. Plus it’s in a swing top bottle and you know how that gets me all excited. It doesn’t take much.
Brewed by the folks over at Kulmbacher Brauerei in Germany (they also brew EKU and a bunch of other German beers – you can check the list on this real beer site) this is a beer and a style that I would love to see more of. A quite poundable session beer at just under 5%, if it weren’t so pricey it would be a slam dunk.
Overall, damn good – Believe in the Schwarz.
