Spab (2123) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
625 ml bottle from the brewpub (Recipe 1, Batch 2). Pours an opaque very dark brown with decent-sized, lasting light brown head. Aroma is dry and a bit roasty/smoky, a bit sweet with dark chocolate and fruit. Flavour is also balanced between roast verging on smoke and sweetness with notes chocolate and darkish fruit (maybe plum/grape). Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy. Solid.

Thanks to jercraigs for this. Pours black with a nice frothy brown top. Aroma is deep roasted malts and small vanilla. Taste is dry roasted malts, small chocolate and vanilla. Nice schwartz!

Pretty good for a scharzbier, if that’s what it is. Smells a little dark and has some character. Tastes better than yer average black lager, whatever that means. Hell, last beer of night.

2012-09-14. Very dark brown-black body with a small tan head. 3+ Sweetish dark malt, muted dry roast. 6+ Mild aroma, dusty roast. 6+ Smooth average plus body. Decent, but simple and a touch too mild overall. On tap at Beer Academy, Toronto

blankboy (5797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2012
Draught at the brewery, Sept. 14. Pours black, very black, with ruby hues and a small diminishing creamy beige head. Aroma of light smoke, toasted malt, some fruit and dark chocolate. Flavour is malty with hints of smoke and coffee. Average bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Seems right on style to what they wanted to make. Quite good.

HogTownHarry (5983) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012
September 14, 2012 - at The Beer Academy - draught sample. Very dark - ruby/black, clear with pretty much no creamy/frothy head. Quite roasty - dry, nutshell, oily malt, fairly bitter (generic/herbal) - frankly it’s a bit harsh, like a light black IPA (7-). Taste - nowhere near as roasty or bitter as the aroma; weirdly sweet, something reminding me of burnt grape juice (6-). Slick, watery, flat, burnt with a building harshness in the finish - I really didn’t like it.

On tap at brewpub Batch 1
Aroma proper dry roast notes. Clean feel with hints of charcoal ,dry ash , dark chocolate. Solid true to style nose. 8-
Appearance dark brown with beige medium cap. Some lace shown. 4-
Flavor and Palate : yes, this is tri Schwartz. Medium light body yet not empty on palate. Dry roast with slight metallic touches. Clean, refreshing excellent thirst quencher. Very approachable version of this style. Nothing extreme square mid of style description. If to look for negatives here maybe was tad too soft. Finishing with hint of smoke.

The beer pours a beautiful black colour with a decent sized brown head. Aroma is very stout like with plenty of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavour is roasted malt, somewhat mild coffee notes, and some yeastiness. A slight metallic aftertaste, but overall, quite enjoyable.

AGAquino (658) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Refreshing, toasted malts and noticeable hop bitter. Slight carbonation with a nice lingering bitter chocolate feel.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2012
Brown-black with off-brown/tan head. Tight aromas that reflect fuller flavors - tastes a bit acrid and roasty, manure and pumpernickel, simply don’t like this one for the off-putting barn aroma.
