Pint on tap at The Griffin in Bracebridge. Black, with a small brown head. Certainly a big aroma for a lager, with lots of roast. The same can be said of the flavour, where cocoa powder joins the roast. Light sweetness. Great body for the style. Probably the best schwartzbier I’ve tied.

Sampled at the Forest City Beer Fest. Bitter coffee, green herb, smoked ham and southern BBQ buried in a well-constructed dark lager. Liked it a lot.

Lubiere (11160) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
A dark brown lager with a thick brown head. In aroma, nice grassy chocolate with herbal hops. In mouth, a nice grassy chocolate with light herbaceous hops, well made.

Niall73 (2247) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Keg at loose moose Toronto. Dark reddy brown colour. Pleasant roasty sweet aroma. It's decent - caramel, roast malts, some fruit, a touch of coffee but still fairly light. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tessic (933) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2013
This lager poured a deep black colour with a short living, tan colour head. To the nose there are scents of molassass, burnt malts, earth and a little chocolate and coffee. First sip was roasty and delicious with flavours of roasty malts, coffee and very light hint of cocoa. Finish is burnt and flavourful.

Surprised that this was a lagered beer. Pours dark and smells toasty. Taste had some smoky bite to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Imbibe. Pours deep black, tan head. Nice rich malty taste, with some delicious hops. Very drinkable!

dwyerpg (4871) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 21, 2013
A light roasty aroma, nice opaque appearance. The beer has a slight metallic flavor to it, to go with the roast and the traces of coffee. The finish is also not quite right. Looks and smells much better than it tastes. Still, thanks to the wifey for bringing this back from her vacation.

Spab (2802) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
On tap at the Only Cafe. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasty malt and nuts. Flavour is moderately roasty dark malt and a decent nuttiness. Medium body. Ok.

Radek Kliber (6681) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 30, 2012
On tap at Cest What?: Aroma: dry roast , clean with decent roast , some balk tea. Tad too estery for lager. 6+
Apperance: dark brownish-black. Lighter white top. Rather flat looking. 3-
Taste/Palate etc. Medium bodied. Strong coffee like roast feel , semi dry. Softer follow-up. There is some of Schwartz in this beer , yet tad to soft on sides with its creamy walls.
