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, 2012 Oktoberfest Mix Pack, thanks Kristi! Pitch black, ice cream like lumpy foamy head. Roasty aroma. Taste is awesome - roast, alcohol over a foamy lively yet smooth body, long slightly bitter finish with licorice and molasses. Just an awesome Schwarzbier, amped up. Man these Beaus one offs are for the most part blowing my socks off. Good job folks!

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.

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!

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.

HopsandBolts (224) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Appearance: Pours a thick impenetrable black with a couple of fingers of tan head dissipating quickly. Aroma: Coco, coffee, dark chocolate. Flavour: Smoke, toasted malt, coffee, hints of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel: Smooth and rich. Overall: This is a really wonderful Black Lager with a real richness and complexity of flavours. I really liked this beer as I did all of the beers in the Beau’s Octoberfest pack this year.

Pours black with a massive tan head and tons of lacing. Nose is roasted grain with a hint of coffee and pine. Aromas are roasted grain, coffee, a hint of bitter chocolate, and a great grassy hop bite as well. Tastes are big sweet with a strong bitter finish. Creamy in the mouth with lively carbonation. This is one of my faves from Beau’s.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2015 Thanks to cfrancis for this beer. Pours an opaque black with a spotty brown head that leaves a bunch of sticky lacing. Aroma of cocoa, sweet molasses and grass. Taste is yeast/chocolate and coffee finishing with a nice grassy bitterness. Alcohol is hidden and it is very easy to drink. Very nice example of the style

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
600 ml bottle. Pours orange-reddish tinted black with a very thick, resilient beige head. Smell is dark fruits, roast, hazelnut. Taste is hazelnut, dark berries, light milk chocolate, roast. Finish is roasty, a bit of dark chocolate bitterness at first, which with time morphs into an obvious coffee bitterness. Lingering dark berry flavor. Light to medium body. Average carbonation. Probably the best Schwarzbier I’ve had, and one of the best beers I’ve had from Beau’s.
