Don’t have much to add to the other reviews here, other than to echo the sentiment that it really didn’t need to be so Imperious - thought the extra alcohol wasn’t noticeable in the mouth, it definitely limited me to one bottle, and I really would have enjoyed having another! Very, very tasty, inky-black Schwarz goodness.

Bottle, 2012 Oktoberfest Mix Pack, thanks Kristi! Pitch black, ice cream like lumpy foamy head. Roasty aroma. Taste is awesome - roast, alcohol over a foamy lively yet smooth body, long slightly bitter finish with licorice and molasses. Just an awesome Schwarzbier, amped up. Man these Beaus one offs are for the most part blowing my socks off. Good job folks!

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.

As a wise man once said: "do or do not there is no try!" First experience with this style of beer and it's a real winner. Dark, roasty, toasty. This beer is strong with flavour. Hands down winner on my Christmas Eve beer list.

codfishh (202) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Poured from a bottle, black almost opaquely with a tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is cold coffee and some light caramel. The taste has lots of smooth roasted flavor, dark coffee and light toffee very smooth. Awesome beer!

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Bière pétillante de couleur rouge sang, mais assez opaque pour sembler noire ; le nez est de grains grillés et de sucre d’orge. Couche de mousse crème en surface. La bouche mince mais assez crémeuse, et surtout extrêmement savoureuse : café et chocolat assaillent le goûteur, avec en finale une petite amertume, le tout rappelant presque un stout impérial. Cette lager a du corps comme une ale, tout en ayant cette signature discrète et précise. Superbe, délicieuse schwarzbier.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Appearance: Pours a thick impenetrable black with a couple of fingers of tan head dissipating quickly. Aroma: Coco, coffee, dark chocolate. Flavour: Smoke, toasted malt, coffee, hints of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel: Smooth and rich. Overall: This is a really wonderful Black Lager with a real richness and complexity of flavours. I really liked this beer as I did all of the beers in the Beau’s Octoberfest pack this year.

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.

rejtable (2561) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Pours black with a massive tan head and tons of lacing. Nose is roasted grain with a hint of coffee and pine. Aromas are roasted grain, coffee, a hint of bitter chocolate, and a great grassy hop bite as well. Tastes are big sweet with a strong bitter finish. Creamy in the mouth with lively carbonation. This is one of my faves from Beau’s.
