Heater Allen - Schwarz Lager
The last time I reviewed a Heater Allen brew, they were kind enough to grace me with their presence by commenting on the post. Since then I have developed even more respect for this small brewery and I continue to purchase their amazing beer on a regular basis (desperate plea for them to send me free shit). In any case I picked up this dark lager and I love it. It is reminiscent of a rauchbier (since your pea-brain has no fucking idea what I am talking about, here is an excellent example of a rauchbier) but not nearly as in-your-face and it is much sweeter. I really like this beer because it goes perfectly with chocolate and I love me some chocolate (especially those little holiday Reece's Cups). The only drawback I see here is that this beer seems eerily like '09 Sandy Paws. I wish I was able to taste them side by side to make an accurate determination but they almost seem like the same fucking beer. What's up with that? In any case, way to make a killer fucking brew Heater Allen. You are the shit. 4.5 out of 5. Drink it.
