Well it’s most definitely black with a light tan head. Raisin and earthy nose. Oh nice. That is good. Rich yet refreshing. Thick and just a little sticky. Sweet at first but swapping to a nice raisin and coffee mellowness. Going down very easily. Malts in the aftertaste. If there weren’t other beers I wanted to try before leaving I would be ordering more of this.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2012
On tap at Volo - came near black with a one finger tan head that lasted for most of the pint. Aromas of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted grains. Roast dominates the flavour, but the body is beautifully (and surprisingly) light and snappy. Quite a lovely brew; could/will drink lots of this as it becomes more widely available.

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

Black pour, beige head. Sweet roast aroma, milk chocolate, light hops. Good mouth feel, silky, soft carb. Sweet roasty finish, light bitterness, very easy drinking.

On tap at the keg. Really well done and enjoyable. A true schwarzbier. Plenty of toasted malt quite crisp and palate is a touch smoky. Nice.

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 (2533) - Cavan Monaghan, 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.
