4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Out of the 600mL bottle, poured a deep brown with a persistent tan head. On the nose I got notes of roasted malt, molasses, chocolate and a hint of smoke. On the palate, rich malty notes of dark chocolate fudge, coffee, pumpernickel bread, with some lingering malt bitterness. Surprisingly balanced and drinkable at 7.3%. Really enjoyed it.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A well laced light tan head on a black/brown body. Nose features chocolate, coffee, roasted oats and a touch of cream. A really nice mixture of schwarzbier tastes, pumped up a notch towards imperial status. Chocolate, molasses, toasted malt and oats, some citrusy hops, mild coffee and cream. Stays crisp, but has a slightly slick mouth feel. Not cloying, though.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black pour with a decent brown head. Aroma is roasty chocolate and coffee, rich and a bit sweet. Taste is a little sweet up front but nice chocolate and coffee, low carbonation and surprisingly drinkable for the ABV and strong flavours. Balanced finish, lingers on coffee. Quite nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours deep dark brown with a small tanned head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee with hints of molasses. Rich molasses and coffee flavours with a medium body. The 4th out of a 2016 4 pack and probably my favorite. Great job to the crew at Beau’s brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had a 600ml bottle with Chopz at Pub Italia. Poured a chocolate milk looking foamy head. Has a very dark brown appearance. Laces the glass very nicely. Aromas of mild coffee, various roasted malts, light and dark. Has huge molasses flavour at first. Hints of caramel, coffee roasts, dark malts. Mix of varied chocolate flavours also. Tingly bitterness and smoothness on the palate. A bit peppery. Easy going down. Smooth finish. Pretty good, too bad about limited quantities.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Always been a fan of Beau’s special brews when I can find them.
Very chocolate toffee, with some surprising fruity/floral undertones. More spice than expected was a good surprise, and properly thick.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 600ml bottle, poured into tulip glass
Aroma: roasty, coffee, caramel,
Appearance: black, frothy, tan head, clear
Taste: medium sweet, light bitter
Palate: light body, oily texture, average carbonation, bitter finish
Overall: Pretty good Schwarzbier. I thought the taste was much more prominent than the aroma, but my nose might be clogged/allergies or something. It’s a great tasting Schwarzbier, so maybe I’ll revisit the aroma when my head isn’t clogged. Nice and roasty, Easy drinking. Very clean lager.
