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

Tap at Burger Bar. Pitch black pour with a tight lasting off-white head. Sticky lacing. The nose is lovely. Soft roast over a little bit of toasted malt. Medium-bodied but nicely clean. There is a nice toastiness tha works. No complaints about this one. It's a fine schwarzbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheJester (2197) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
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.

Bottle that was a gift from Guillaume. Thanks! Aged ~6-8 months. Pours a cloudy black with a tiny beige head. Aroma: malt, raisin, caramel, kind of like a doppelbock. Palate: medium bodied, fizzy, smooth. Taste: sweet start, quickly turning to a rough burnt nut flavour, possibly indicating that has been aged too long. Still awesome and delicious.

Scent of dark roasted malt. Opaque dark brown colour. Flavour of coffee, molasses, and chocolate. Full body with medium carbonation. Great beer.

On tap @ Gigs: Dark brown with some ruby highlights, 2 finger cap, laces the glass. Aroma is roasty but demure with some twiggy hop tones. Flavour has a tarditional Thuringa Schwartzbier profile - roasty up front, light bodied, noble hops bite, finish is clean, roasty and crisp. A very good rendition of the style, light, roasty, dry - Kostritzer couldn’t do better.

PatIrish (169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
On tap at WVRST, pours a dark black with an off white tan head. Roasted coffee, chocolate and some toasted nuts. Sweet and bitter on the palate, with a clean no linger finish.

Ontbeertaster (2348) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2012
Tap, pours a nice black, aroma is light roasty, flavour at first seemed minimal but I as I worked through the pint it became smooth and very drinkable with a really nice back bone of a roasty brew. I got a nice flavourful beer. Decent offering

blankboy (6632) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2012
Cask at Cask Days 2012. Twenty-seventh beer of the fest. Pours a very dark brown with red hues and an average size bubbly tan head. Malty aroma, lightly roasted, along with light hops and hints of vanilla and chocolate. Nice chocolaty flavour, also lightly roasted -- simple but pleasant. Average bodied. Really good.

Lubiere (11232) - 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.
