Can. Dark pour with just a slight red tinge. Nice tan head. Aroma is chocolaty and roasted malt. Taste is similar, chocolate, some coffee. Crisp finish. Enjoyable.

Can, sent to me by Robbie-- thanks buddy! Dark brown with an almond coloured head. Aroma is quite chocolatey. The palate is again mostly chocolate, with a touch of bitter roast. A little sweeter than I like my schwarzes but a nice session nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Where and how: LCBO , can 473 ml
Aroma dark chocolate, cocoa hint of coffee. Nice and clean. Bit lacking roasty feel and its marked acidity of German Schwarzbiers.
Top: lighter fizzy bright white look well contrasting with base.
Base: dark brown, slight haze(?).
Palate : medium bodied with thinner walls. Average plus carbonation.
Taste: Mineral notes with proper black charcoal vibe. Refreshing and crisp. Clean.
Other notes Am I impressed with this brew. Yes I am. Solid example for style brew right in Ontario.

Tall can from lcbo
Nice dark black color with a good head that stuck around. Toasty dark notes but clean and no astringency. Tastes more like a lager stout than a shwartzbier.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
LCBO fresh can. Metallic finish, with some roast and lots of lace and retained head. OK drinkability, but the metallic clearly built up as I drank a multiple sample.Also just too sweet and sticky sugary.

On tap at Moe’s Smokehouse- Colchester, ON. Jet black with nice thick white head the lasted.NIce lacing. Wonderful toasted malt and chocolate notes. Medium sweetness with no real bitterness. Slightly oily texture. It is described as a black lager, very closely resembles a stout. Very similar to a Guiness but without the oakey tannins on finish. I really liked this.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from the LCBO. Dark brown pour with a big tan head. Nose is coffee and chocolate and roasted malts. Sweet chocolate and caramel front but finish provides a little bitterness though somewhat soft. Medium creamy mouth with medium carbonation. Decent.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours jet black with a big frothy tan head that sticks around. Very clear, some ruby highlights around the edges. Smooth coffee like toasted malt dominates the aroma with some toasty notes behind it. Big malt flavor, tastes of toasted bread crust, with a touch of caramel and a smooth toasty coffee note, the roast is very smooth with no astringency. Mouth feel is creamy with a medium body and medium carbonation. Really nice example, a little more of a caramel than I expected.
