Life On Tap Episode #257: Obscura

Dan cozies up with another fine example of one of his favorite styles, Greenpoint Beer’s Obscura schwarzbier.

Greenpoint Beer Obscura

STYLE: Schwarzbier
ABV: 4.9%
IBU: 23
AVAILABILITY: 16-Ounce Can; Draft

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can/website.

Appearance

Deep, dark brown burgeoning on black with a half-inch, tan head.

Aroma

Chocolate nibs, espresso notes, bready malt.

Taste

Roast continues on the palate along with most of the flavors from the aroma. Aftertaste of espresso and chocolate is lovely.

Mouthfeel

Super dry, espresso-like mouthfeel/finish.

Overall

Fried food, proteins, and cheddars to the moon with this one. I love schwarzbiers so much that I would drink them year-round (hint hint brewers out there).

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
