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.

pours very dark brown with a very nice beige head, very good retention and lacing. strong and bold kalamata olives, chocolate roastiness, lager fruitiness, soy, bit of minerals and spices, hint of smoke and umami, some sweetness. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, herbal-spicy-grassy finish. slight warming feeling and an almost completely dry finish. loved that stuff.

Noce choco and coffee notes on the nose and tongue. Nice medium body. More boozy then i would like.

My Bottom Line:
Toasted bread generosity moves into roastiness, as herbal hops freshen up this lean and soft Schwarzbier.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A tower of foam slowly crumbles into the brown-edged black.
-This is very drinkable for a 7%+ brew.
-That being said, the 7% is not necessary at all. The same flavors and body would have been great at 5% (like most German Dunkels or Schwarzbiers).
-A lightly fruity acidity increases drinkability.
-This is authentic, despite the high abv.

Bottle.

Jet black with a mocha head that will take an aggressive pour to really materialize. Settles down quickly. Cocoa, chocolate milk, and coffee beans dominate the nose. Palate is rich and creamy with flavours of tastes are identical with the strange addition of red grape skin on the tail end. Certainly one of Beau’s more aromatic and flavourful beers, and I’d buy it again if sold individually, which is not something I’d say about most of Beau’s boxed set beers. Well done.

Pours black with huge tan coloured head that leaves a nice lace all the way up the glass. Aromas consist of roasted malt, coffee, light noble hops, a clean nose. Flavours consists of rich bitter chocolate that lasts through the finish, medium bitterness which lingers a bit, crisp flavour that is dry on the finish.

Shared with a friend. The beer poured a coca-cola colour with a brown head. Aroma was roasted malt, coffee, and some molasses. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour was well balanced between the coffee roastiness and the molasses sweetness.
