COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Schwarz is bigger than your Schwarz... and tastier too! This extra-strong version of a German black lager displays pronounced roasted flavours juxtaposed with a lager’s enjoyable crispness.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet malt with some roast malt notes and a little fruitiness. Taste is nice roast and a little fruitiness. Feels kind of creamy not that crisp. More like an ale than a lager. Pretty good beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Franckg (251) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
Arôme de malts rôtis, café et anis. En bouche, le côté rôti est (trop) dominant. On décèle aussi des effluves de café noir fort, chocolat noir, bois, une touche d’anis et d’alcool. La finale est longue et amère. Les saveurs disparaissent assez rapidement. Manque de rondeur et de complexité. Malheureusement déçu par cette bière.

As a wise man once said: "do or do not there is no try!" First experience with this style of beer and it's a real winner. Dark, roasty, toasty. This beer is strong with flavour. Hands down winner on my Christmas Eve beer list.

Ferris (6594) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle - Toast and roasted malts. Jet brown with a rich light brown head. Lots of toast and cocoa and a bitter finish. The finish is long and lingering with burnt toast notes. I was on board till the end, where unfortunately it takes a wrong turn.

DuffMan (7371) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle, shared with Grippitis and Mike. Stouty appearance, nearly black with a finely bubbled light brown head. Roasty black malts and chocolate, hints of licorice, dark brown bread. Actually very good!

600ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Near black in colour with a thin tan head, light lacing. The aroma is very toasty, nutty, some coffee. The flavour has some light fruit, some sweetness, roasted malts, light coffee. Finishes long, bitter.

Jet black with a mocha head that will take an aggressive pour to really materialize. Settles down quickly. Cocoa, chocolate milk, and coffee beans dominate the nose. Palate is rich and creamy with flavours of tastes are identical with the strange addition of red grape skin on the tail end. Certainly one of Beau’s more aromatic and flavourful beers, and I’d buy it again if sold individually, which is not something I’d say about most of Beau’s boxed set beers. Well done.
