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.

Pours darker than Stephen Harper’s sad little heart with a foamy one finger cap that stays longer than a drunken party guest. Taste is yesterday’s espresso, roasted malts, & boozy goodness. Say what you want about Beau’s but this years Octoberfest interpretations of German brewing staples is pretty righteous. Not often that I pickup a mixer pack from the LCBO & find each beer in it wavering between inspired & satisfying.

Intense dark roast, and alot of bitterness. Bitter cocoa, and some strong coffee notes. A thin lager like mouth feel, and low to medium carb. The finish is again, quite bitter with pine resin notes. Alcohol is very well hidden, and this is quite drinkable. Interesting take on the style.

codfishh (64) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Poured from a bottle, black almost opaquely with a tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is cold coffee and some light caramel. The taste has lots of smooth roasted flavor, dark coffee and light toffee very smooth. Awesome beer!

KansaiBeerLvrs (2045) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. A very dark brown pour with a filmy tan head(on cask) a very malty sweet aroma roast chocolate and graham. Smooth bodied but on the thin side. The taste is roasty, nutty, malty with maybe a hint of smoke delicious.

czar (4362) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
pours very dark brown with a very nice beige head, very good retention and lacing. strong and bold kalamata olives, chocolate roastiness, lager fruitiness, soy, bit of minerals and spices, hint of smoke and umami, some sweetness. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, herbal-spicy-grassy finish. slight warming feeling and an almost completely dry finish. loved that stuff.

asheft (2509) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2013
[bottle at Wellington Gastropub] Sweet molasses and dark malt aroma--toasty and with a faint, lagery sulfur note. Opaque brown-black with a lasting, light brown island leaving dots on the glass. Creamy vanilla and toasty molasses flavour that is sweet, but more or less balanced by a moderate bitterness. Accents of peanuts and coffee with milk and sugar. Light body, medium carbonation, lasting coffee flavour in the finish.

500ml bottle. Dark black oily body, moderate tan head. Particulate in the head. Nice touch. Very nice caramel and dark malt aroma. Taste is fairly complex, caramel, light chocolate, light fruity tartness, light smoke, some roastiness. Body is dry.

pushkinwow (2006) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2013
Awesome nerdy beer. Black with a nice mocha head. Alcohol, raisin, prune, smoke, chocolate. Moderate body and mild carbonation, becomes dry with more chocolate and roasted malt. Very nice finish and worth trying.

blankboy (6046) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle [600ml[. Pours a deep ruby, almost black, with an average size semi-lasting fluffy tan head. Decent lacing on the glass. Aroma of lightly roasted caramel malt, light smoke, coffee and light leafy hops. Flavour follows the aroma with lightly roasted malt, notes of coffee, light leafy hops along with some molasses and dark fruit. Medium bodied. An enjoyable Schwarz. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
