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.

Spab (2801) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
600 ml bottle from LCBO (part of Oktoberfest mix pack). Pours a dark chestnut brown with large, creamy, light tan head. Aroma is roasty with lots of dark chocolate and some fruity notes. Flavour is fairly roasty with dark chocolate the most prominent note, but also a little fruitiness and a bit of herbal bitterness. Slick mouthfeel. Pretty nice beer.

Boutip (5181) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dark black color lager with a huge dark foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of chocolate malt and dry roasted coffee is quite enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by some black chocolate notes with some dry roasted coffee. Limited residual sugar with a dry but not astringent finish. Body is about average for style with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Easy and smooth drinking with enough complexity.

lesifflebiere (1472) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Bière pétillante de couleur rouge sang, mais assez opaque pour sembler noire ; le nez est de grains grillés et de sucre d’orge. Couche de mousse crème en surface. La bouche mince mais assez crémeuse, et surtout extrêmement savoureuse : café et chocolat assaillent le goûteur, avec en finale une petite amertume, le tout rappelant presque un stout impérial. Cette lager a du corps comme une ale, tout en ayant cette signature discrète et précise. Superbe, délicieuse schwarzbier.

Listigovers (507) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours black with a brown thick head. Strong aroma of roasted malt, slight sweetness. Medium bodied, smooth and warming, slightly bitter finish. Well balanced, medium length finish. Very nice!

RhetoricalAns (581) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle, opened with a nice hiss. Poured black with some dark brown fringes. Tall tan foamy head that dissipates to a thin creamy cap. Aroma is heavy roasted malt, some dark chocolate for bitterness. Taste is heavy roasted malt as well, some booziness towards the end. Medium body and clean finish.

cargo150 (1012) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Couleur brune tirant sur le noir avec un col respectable beige. Au nez de notes de grains torréfiés du chocolat et de céréales sucrés. En bouche la description est bonne, une lager avec des notes de chocolat et grains torréfiés. Pas trop mon style mais c’est pas mauvais!

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Deep black pour with a thick sticky white head. The aroma has a bit of roast and some nice toasted/roasted malt character and a bit of licorice along with a touch of toffee and some light fruit with a bit of char. Lightly sweet and a little bit chocolatey. A little bit herbal on the back as well. Nice brew.

Bottle. Black. Tan head moderate retention with some lacing. Dark coffee, some bitter chocolate, cherries, toffee on the nose. Little thin yet still coats the mouth, Some alcohol presence on the back end with notes of coffee throughout.

shaynsawchuk (662) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
600 mL bottle. Pours opaque black with a small khaki head of foam. Roasty espresso, dark cocoa, fig, brown sugar caramels, black cherry and cola notes. Somewhat sweet with decent earthy hopping that provides a little bitterness, not much from the roast however. Clean on the palate with a hint of booziness, moderate plus body and full carbonation. One of the better beers from these folks.
