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.

Metalchopz (2198) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
Shared with PaleAleRider at Pub Italia in Ottawa, ON. Written on front label, packaged SEP 24 12. Pours a dark brown colour with red highlights. The head is big, foamy, beige coloured, long lasting and with dirty lacing. Beautiful roasted malt aromas with notes of dark fruits, coffee and molasses. No alcohol burning at all, not even warming. Goes down refreshing with a silky mouthfeel. Nicely balanced between the roasted malt and hop. Not too powerful, making this a beautiful strong schwarbier that has great drinkability. Was great with the food from Pub Italia. For those who want the flavours of a dark beer, but not the heavy body.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2012 October 31, 2012 - on draught at the Bar Hop Black & Orange Fest. Deep ruby-black, large lovely creamy lasting tan head (4+). Simple Schwarz aroma - light roast, dried grassy bitterness, not much alcohol or sweetness. Taste follows, a tad lactic. Appropriate flight body, good carbonation, increasing bitterness and a bit of molasses in the finish. Nice!

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
2012-10-08. Black body with a nice tan head and lace. Aroma has an interesting tangy quality to it, mild roasty malt character. 6+ Flavour has sweet malty core, modest bitter roast, tangy accents. 6+ Very sooth average plus bodied palate, velvety carbonation. 3+ Okay, it is a decent take on a schwarzbier but it is not really to my own tastes. On tap at Brewmarket, Brick Works, Toronto

600 ml bottle @ Wellington Gastropub Ottawa. Pours an opaque brown with a moderate mocha head. Aroma is raspberry, chocolate, and molasses. Taste is coffee, cocoa, and a nice bitter hoppy finish. Medium body and a longish bitter finish. Great desert beer.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
On tap at Beau’s Oktoberfest (Vankleek Hill, ON). Opaque black body with a decent, lasting beige creamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and vineous hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries plummy, brown sugar, and oaky notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Enjoyable.

On tap at brewers backyard. Brown/black. Fuzzy brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, molasses a little coffee. Mostly sweet dark chocolate, roasted, light body. Low bitter dry finish. Malty, dark and crisp. Not complex but exactly what they intended. Nice beer.

Quevillon (2448) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
Drank on tap (12 oz) at the Vankleek Hill Oktoberfest 2012, September 29. Cola color, medium head. Aroma of smoked pea, pale malt. Malted barley taste slightly sweet, note of mocha coffee, sweeter than bitter. It is very well made for a strong Schwarzbier!

cfrancis (2249) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2012
Best beer at Oktoberfest not in a cask. Pours pitch black with a frothy beige top. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and mocha. Taste is great light to well roasted flavouring on the malts with some dark chocolate.
