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.

BreWedge (353) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2012
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 (2485) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
Deep black pour with a thick sticky white head. The aroma has a bit of roast and some nice toasted/roasted malt character and a bit of licorice along with a touch of toffee and some light fruit with a bit of char. Lightly sweet and a little bit chocolatey. A little bit herbal on the back as well. Nice brew.

RhetoricalAns (437) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle, opened with a nice hiss. Poured black with some dark brown fringes. Tall tan foamy head that dissipates to a thin creamy cap. Aroma is heavy roasted malt, some dark chocolate for bitterness. Taste is heavy roasted malt as well, some booziness towards the end. Medium body and clean finish.

HippyHop (337) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
This came from the same mixer pack everyone else bought. I’ll skip the deets as they’ve been covered below, but this stuff is really nice. It’s got all these stout-like characteristics, mouthfeel is wonderfully creamy, and yet it’s still kind of light and crisp. Solid.

DuffMan (7227) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle, shared with Grippitis and Mike. Stouty appearance, nearly black with a finely bubbled light brown head. Roasty black malts and chocolate, hints of licorice, dark brown bread. Actually very good!

Reimer96 (1414) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
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

KansaiBeerLvrs (2607) - 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.
