Schwarzbier, or black beer, is a dark or black lager that originated in Germany. They tend to have an opaque, black colour with hints of chocolate or coffee flavours, and are gener- ally around 5% ABV. They are similar to stout in that they are made from roasted malt, which gives them their dark colour, but are lighter in mouthfeel and ABV.
Schwarzbiers are made using a cool fermen- tation method, which classes them as lager. Its flavour may vary between bitter and slightly sweet.

Jana Dellapina submitted this black lager to our 2019 Homebrew Competition, the Black Box Challenge. All the classic Schwarzbier notes show through in this beer with a beautifully balanced nose of dark malts, chocolate and spice, a soft bitterness and smooth delivery. This is a true lager and exhibits the clean, crisp characteristics demanded by the style.

Enjoy with friends by a warm fire and maybe a grilled sandwich of smoked gouda.
