Lake Superior Schwartz-wiezen
Imperial German Schwartzweizen
This black wheat ale could be called an Imperial Wheat Porter.
This brew pours cloudy dark brown, almost black, and is topped by a massive brown head. The aroma beckons with abundant ripe banana bread and plum bolstered by fresh, spicy cloves and dark malts. The flavor features roasted barley that is slightly burnt with big toffee sweetness that coats the tongue. The brew’s spice qualities increase in intensity through the swallow, but never overpower the palate. Superior features a big body, round mouthfeel and wonderful finish .
