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.

Don’t have much to add to the other reviews here, other than to echo the sentiment that it really didn’t need to be so Imperious - thought the extra alcohol wasn’t noticeable in the mouth, it definitely limited me to one bottle, and I really would have enjoyed having another! Very, very tasty, inky-black Schwarz goodness.

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 (527) - Trois-Rivières, 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.

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.
