General Schwarz Schwarzbier

Central Coast Brewing (San Luis Obispo, CA)
"2016 Gold Medal Winner at GABF. A style that dates back to Germany in the 14th Century, this black, opaque lager is layered with malt complexity and full of rich, roasted coffee flavors.  Similar to a Stout in many ways, but with a cleaner, more crisp finish."
The aroma is mostly of roasted hops.
Very much like a stout beer. Deep roasted maltiness with plenty of coffee and dark chocolate flavors.
Light and quite refreshing. A very clean, crisp finish.
Overall a very enjoyable quaff.

ABV 5.3%
