Sprecher Brewing Company Black Bavarian - 6% ABV
As you take your first drink you expect the brew to be thick and heavy, but you would be wrong because this is, after all, a lager. The Black Bavarian is light and smooooooth as it dances across your tongue. You will notice the very complex toasted malts as the flavor maker and though you expect it to be sweet, it is not at all. You will also notice cocoa, toasted bread, carmel and coffee and then the big finish is a wonderful dry finish provided by the hops.
This, my friends, is what a black lager, or a schwarzbier is supposed to taste like and I highly recommend searching to find this delight.
The beer is not available in Texas (big surprise there, eh?) but is easily located as you travel to the north and east or better yet, go to the brewery in Wisconsin and hang out in their beer garden and drink yourself goofy.
