Austin Beerworks Black Thunder German Schwarz Review

Pours a dark brown-black color.  Roasty and clean, with a dry finish.  A nice example of a German Style dark lager.

Hops: German Magnum, Tettnanger, Saaz, Hallertau

Malts: Pils, C-60, Chocolate Wheat, Debittered Black

Fermented with Urquell Lager yeast.

Available year-round in cans and on draft.

    Dark black color but actually light and easy to drink. Clean and crisp with some mild roasty flavors.

    AB did a good job keeping the dark malts from being too bitter for this style. Crisp and clean with a subtle toasted malt flavor.
