kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, - NOV 7, 2012
The head is ok, the body black. It smells thin, a bit darkmalty, watery. The taste is watery, a bit malty. It looks good and full bodied, but is the contrary, boring. 10/6/7/6/9/6

lbianchi66 (296) - FRANCE - APR 19, 2016
Robe brune aux reflets rubis. Peu de mousse. Arômes réglisse, fumé, chocolat, café. Goût cacao, fruits noirs, figue et pruneaux. On reste sur le café et le fumé. Assez longue en bouche. Texture légèrement aqueuse. Pas mal.

AgentAle (1433) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2016
Aroma is bitter german malts, caramel, fig, and slight tart. Taste is roasted malts, toffee, and slight metallic flavor from the can. Finishes with slight tart and a bit of earthiness. Appearance is a clear brown with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

mzaar (2658) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2016
Flaska @ Backstage, Varberg. Mörkbrun öl med ett smutsvitt skum. Dofter och smaker av karamell, nöt och mjölkchoklad. Något tunn i kroppen.

rlgk (17152) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2016
Draught at Beefeater Inn, Göteborg. Dark brown beer with a small beige head. Caramel and bread aroma, fruity notes, chocolate, cocoa, some toffee. Chocolate and caramel flavor, brown sugar, licorice, some fruits. Too sweet.

UXO (1356) - CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
Appearance: clear deep amber with one finger of dense light tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, caramel, roasty grain, grassy, nutty, light smoke, metallic. (5/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium-light body tending to watery, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry slightly smoky and metallic finish. (3/5) As usual, a schwarzbier that leaves me less than impressed. It’s just not a very interesting style at the best of times, and this isn’t the best, by a long shot. It’s drinkable, just not exciting. (11/20)

patricks110 (2393) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2015
Palatable but bland a bit offputting. The pour is a dark, murky black with a thin beige head. Nose is roasted malts, light cocoa, skunk? Light malt base with a mild bitterness on the finish, lack of sweetness.

DuffMan (9027) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 30, 2015
Can, shared with Rockley and compared alongside Leavenworth’s schwarz. Man this suffered by comparison! Weak caramel and coarse grains with the same tinny aftertaste we found in their Helles. Thin and pretty terrible by comparison.

exeter (497) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 26, 2015
Pours the colour of cola with very little head and no lace. Tastes of toasted malt, brown sugar, dark fruits, noble bitterness. Not bad, but not spectacular.

reebtogi (5473) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2015
500ml can pours almost black in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and grass. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. I think I am being a little generous with this rating, as this is not a particularly good schwarzbier.

500ml can with "cool star"! Dark brown pour, orange highlights. Beige foam, good creamy texture .Lacing is nice. Aroma is roasty with a metallic note. Taste has light roasted malt, bit of dark chocolate, mild hop. Plain finish, dryish. A bit under average for the style, I’m slightly disappointed, nothing I would come back to....
