December 7, 2011

As it is now well into December I shall be reviewing plenty of winter seasonal ales.

Magic Hat Black As Night Winter Lager

Today’s beer comes from Magic Hat Brewing Company. This is their winter seasonal, a Schwarzbier at 4.6%. It is also known as Magic Hat Howl if you see that around as well.

This beer pours a dark brown color which appears to be black until you shine some light on it and notice it is definitely brown. Beige head.

Aroma is very roasty. Roasted malts and nuts with some dark grain sweetness as well.

Taste is a bit metallic with a fat roasty malt flavor in the middle. Ends with the malty sweetness you expect with a touch of bitterness.
