Multiple growler pours at the Ontario Brewing Awards. Deep brown black pour. Nose is lightly toasty and a touch of soft roast. Fairly clean and a bit of light toast. Nice Schwarz.

Another nice offering. Pours brown cola with some head. Notes of coffee, roasted nuts, maybe a bit of a metallic tinge. Some smoke in there as well. Light body with lively carbonation. Good stuff.

pushkinwow (2515) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Muddy brown with creamy tan head. Light smoked meat, roasted malt misquite. Moderate body and carbonation, some chocolate on the finish with a hint of molasses and brown sugar but still balanced with a nice bitterness and smoke.

probstblueribbon (3681) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2013
Pint at the brew pub. Deep brown black with a so-so tan head. A lot of repeated malt character, black coffee, dark chocolate, surprisingly rich. Medium+ body, relaxed effervescence. A little lighter than the nose, clean, slight toffee?, similar roasted character, nice; dry with moderate bitterness and a clean, roasted finish. Quite nice.

Lubiere (12704) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2013
A deep dark brown schwarzbier with a thin brown head. Arroma, sweet roasted malt with caramel and light fruity notes. In mouth, nice sweet chocolate malt, with light grassy hops, light coffe e grinds, well made.
