SlovakSniper (5085) - Candiac, Quebec, - JUN 14, 2012
Un verre à Montréal. Une robe brune foncée et sa mince couche de mousse. Des parfums de grains rôtis et de malts grillés sur des notes fruitées qui se renchérissent au fil de la dégustation. Des saveurs qui évitent la douceur et qui se concentrent sur les grains rôtis et grillés. Des saveurs de pain slave. Quelque chose qui me rappelle la boulangerie de stará mama Kadlecik. Un côté fruité qui demeure ici très discret. Des houblons qui ne se reconnaissent pas. Une finale qui évite les excès amers des grains rôtis et la douceur des céréales maltées. Un très haut degré de buvabilité. Priama spomienka na minulosť. Moja babička, pre koho šťastie bolo tak drahé. Ak počujete ma, ja ťa milujem a vždy myslím na teba so slzami v očiach a ruku na srdce.

On tap @ Benelux (Montréal). Dark copper/brown with a medium light beige head and good lacing. Aroma of raisins, caramel, cereals and roasted malt. Taste is lightly sweet and about the same as aroma. Light to medium body. Soft to medium carbonation. Good Schwarzbier!

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur brune-noire et claire. Nez de grains de malt rôtis, léger de tabac avec des notes de houblon floral, de chocolat noir et de pain grillé. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse. Léger goût de pain grillé et de noix grillées lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt rôti avec un léger goût de tabac (du genre cigare) et quelques notes de chocolat noir puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux aux notes florales. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de rôti, léger de houblon herbeux avec des notes de tabac et de noix grillées. (23 mai 2013)

rodenbach99 (4209) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2013
Une pinte provenant du fût sur la terrasse à l’avant rue Sherbrooke. Bière noire avec une mousse brune, classique. Au nez des grains rôtis, rien de surprenant et des notes de Lager. Le corps est léger, des saveurs de grains rôtis bien présentes et une belle amertume en finale. Bien réussie.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Described as black pilsner, this one has the aroma of coffee and cigars. Near black as expected. More bitter than the usual schwarz, this gives the malt element the roasty metallic edge associated with hoppy dark ales. The most unique beer I sampled that day.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2013 In short: A grassy-hoppy and chocolaty black lager. Good beer
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Mahogany body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is a pleasant mix of dried grass, chocolate chips cookies, burnt raisin pie and undertones of lime. In mouth the body is full, the carbonation is very active and tickling. Taste is chocolaty cake malts, toasted crusty baguette, croutons, raisins, a slice of fruit cake, a generous hopping. The beer is seriously hoppy, sundried yellowed grass, lime-like citrusy edges. Bitterness and dryness are nose to nose in the finish. A ’black pils’ that is just about as drinkable as most hoppy bohemian pils I’ve had. I love Benelux but I hate that you need to be on facebook to know what’s happening there, and apparently I am not “modern” enough because I’m not on internet social networking… go 01100110 01110101 01100011 01101011 yourself people.

mcberko (14396) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at Benelux, pours a dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of light toasted malt and toasted nuts - not a whole lot going on . Flavour is the same, with a somewhat metallic finish. Not much hop presence. Boring and a bit stale tasting. Not so good.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2012
Draught at the brewpub, June 9. Pours a very dark brown with an average size lasting creamy tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, nuts, chocolate and very light hops. Flavour of dark fruit, lightly toasted malt and light chocolate. Average to medium bodied. A very good version of the style.

Dark brown. No head. Smooth with dark chocolate malts. Decent dark lager but not a pilsner at all.
