Big bottle, Ann Arbor, MI via Mulmur. Deep brown, small head. Dark chocolate aroma, some bright hops. Faint resin burnt finish reebtogi (6378) - 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 (153) - 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.

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 (3688) - 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.

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. mansquito (6894) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2016

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 Dark brown with some brown head. Dark chocolate and some roasted aromas. Taste is a bit chocolate but more coffee flavours. Very balanced and tasty Gluepot (716) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2016
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.
