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.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
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.

Lots of mocha head. Jet black can’t see into it. Smells fimiliar. Smells smoked and like mocha. Taste its a little thick, a littl watery(a tad just to remind you it s a lager)because its a bitter smokey mocha boozy more dark bock/stout tasteing beer. Reminds me of like mocha stout by souther teir and like mocha boozy beers I had b4. Winter time beer its like. You can taste and feel the % some and its really good. Cheer’s.!!!

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.

Metalchopz (2405) - 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.

[4852-20121008] Tap. Light coffee grounds Aroma seems a little soured. Black body with a long-lasting foamy light tan head. Bitter roasted malt spark flavour finishes with roasted raisin wood notes. Full body. Really interesting, like Darth had soured over the years and this was the biggest schwartz he could mustard. (7/4/7/4/16) 3.8
