Our Schwarz is bigger than your Schwarz... and tastier too! This extra-strong version of a German black lager displays pronounced roasted flavours juxtaposed with a lager’s enjoyable crispness.

Gerbeer (3543) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2017
600 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with moderate head. Aromas of dry roasted malts, chocolate powder, and nuts. Flavors follow same, clean and dry. Very nice example of style.

Makes me think of the Tom Green in a less sweet/more bitter way. My first schwarzbier, which makes me think of imperial Stout.

UXO (1827) - CANADA - APR 12, 2017
Appearance: clear brown with two fat fingers of fluffy beige head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, chunky soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: cocoa, toasted bread, liquorice, grassy, mild coffee, hint of molasses. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate-soft carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (4/5) Heckuva lager, even if they don’t know how to spell "Schwarzbier"... malt dominant , but not overly sweet, with a smooth, softly-carbonated body. Probably one of the best of the style I’ve had, if not the best. (15/20) 7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com

Bottled, thanks Lubiere! Dark brown, rich firm head. Spicy chocolate aroma. Mid sweet with medium-full body and well rounded moutheel. Creamy with licorice and coffee, chocolate and toast. Spicy bitter finish. Harmonious.

Draught @ Milk & Hops - Chelsea. Dark brown with slight reddish tint against the light, small creamy tan head, light coffee aroma, medium carbonation, sweetish mocha taste, smooth body, longish mocha finish. Very well balanced and smooth dark lager.

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017
600ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark chocolate with hints of coffee and dark fruits. Taste is a dark fruity and chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and grassy hop bitterness. Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a well done brew that is full flavoured and well balanced. Recommended.

hellonearth (150) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2017
Un corps intensément noir, une onctueuse mousse qui s’estompe. Odeurs de chocolat noir, cacao, café, fumée. Goût marqué par les mêmes éléments que ceux trouvés en arômes. Plutôt onctueuse. Finale amère. Une bonne grosse stout riche, un brin lourde. Bien intéressante. Mais définitivement, cette gamme de bière, ce n’est pas trop mon buzz.

Subliminal64 (154) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2017
Bought as part of a winter mixer pack. Smells very sweet and malty. Pours a dark black, which no light can penetrate. Awesome head with huge bubbles that dissipates into some lacing. Clumps of yeast at the bottom of the glass when finished. Taste is very malty, and sweet, with a slight bitterness. No booze taste. Great carbonation. Sweet with slightly bitter aftertaste. Overall I was very happy with this beer. Will look for again, but not on a regular basis. MB The Beer "Bear"on

northropfrye (3446) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 26, 2017
Dark black body a bit of white head. Aroma of lactose and cocoa. Sweet taste dried fruit a dry element and again milk. Really neat schwartzbier. Has some of the characteristics of a schwartzbier and imperial stout. Nice.
