Details

It might look like a porter with its clear deep red-black color and tan head, but Schwarzbier is another creature entirely. This black lager is clean, roasty, malty, and above all, smooth. The roasted grain component of our Schwarzbier's profile is more like bittersweet chocolate instead of black coffee, and is underscored by rich malt character from Munich and crystal malts and moderate bitterness from German hops. Recommended: 2-stage cold fermentation and yeast starter.

Wow! Review by William

This turned out great. Its dark and malty and every bit as good as Kostrizer maybe even better. Anybody who wants to brew beer at home needs to try this one. (Posted on 12/9/13)
True to its style. Review by james

Not too malty or hoppy. Good mouthfeel and very clean looking. My friends think this not only my best beer but the best they have tasted. (Posted on 12/18/12)
Excellent Review by Mud

I am a big fan of schwarzbiers, so it is not surprising that I like this. But, this has been the best beer I have ever made. I really like this. Very simple. Low roast, chocolate notes. Just perfect. I used Wyeast 1007 (german ale strain) at 60* and it turned out great. I am making this again and going to aim for 57* to see the results. (Posted on 2/2/12)
Outstanding dark lager Review by osagedr

This is an incredible lager; very well balanced (I used a decoction for mashout and dry-hopped with an extra oz of Perle (1/2 oz would have been plenty)), and clears like a champ with my workhorse strain W-34/70. IMO this is the best AG brew I've made to date.

Very highly recommended! (Posted on 7/18/11)

Brewed this as only my 6th batch and was blown away with how smooth and malty a dark beer could be. No bitterness what-so-ever! Try this if you wnt a roasty malt flavor. Definate favorite. (Posted on 6/29/10)
