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 [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

Bottle 600ml at Cest What?
Aroma: tad too fruity , lacking dry metallic feel, vineous with hints of coffee . Soft finish.
Apperance: dark ruby with touch of brown. Off white lighter top.
Taste/Palate etc. medium bodied with thinner side. Some sugary sweetness with roast, Thinner finish . Tad oily malt in character , felt a bit like bock with dark roasted malts. Good but not as Schwartz.

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!

Boutip (5910) - 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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4597) - 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.

robinvboyer (4143) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
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.

Eructoblaster (3844) - 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.
