When we first brewed Schwarz we were going for a traditional Schwarzbier. Over the last couple of years, after trips to Germany and the Czech Republic, we have realized our beloved Schwarz is much more similar to a tmavé pivo, or Czech-style dark lager, as it’s a bit rounder and maltier than a German Schwarzbier. The beer's aroma is malty/espresso, with a hint of dark chocolate. On the palate, malt, chocolate, and espresso flavors take center stage. The sweet maltiness just offsets the more bitter/roasty notes, producing a smooth, rich brew. The hops provide balance, but virtually nothing to the aroma. This is the perfect beer to serve with a barbecued steak or tri-tip, it's also excellent with just about any chocolate dessert!
