Justifiable name - very robust dark reddish colour. Quite light on the hopping. The roasted malt is very smooth and gives a thick flavour to the beer, yet doesn’t have much of a burnt flavour about it. Well blended, and very smooth. Quite sweet, and a slight dryness in the aftertaste, but unfortunately, not much aroma. Enjoyable to drink. iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2005
Pours a dark, almost opaque,black colour with a medium head. Aroma is light, with some caramel and molasses. Given the appearance I was expecting a much thicker and flavourfull beer but this turned out to be rather light in body and taste. The taste starts off sweet with some molasses presnet but finishes off somewhat dry. Not bad but.. JustinBathurst (134) - Corner Brook, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAR 24, 2005
I spent a week in Kitchener-Waterloo and as a result got a crash-course in local brews. This one was usually available. I tried it first on tap, then in a bottle. On tap was better for sure, as the bottled dark tasted like sap.
Dark appearance, still somewhat watery on tap, faintly sweet, but with absolutely no life to recommend it after one glass. If I was offered it, I think I’d pass. Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2005
Very mild sweet aroma, colour of cola and lack of head. Taste is mild all the way through...mildly sweet, bitter and not much else I can point out cuz it’s so mild...watery mouthfeel was dissapointing, one of few forgettable dark beers. Commodore (112) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2005
Poured a slick ruby-black without any head. Nondescript, yet non-offensive odour..maybe sugary. Crisper, cleaner taste, but man was it sweet with malt and caramel. This beer was too sweet for my tastes.

Schwarzbier is not really for me. I would have to get more brands to really make an honest final rating. I’ll get to work on that right away. My first impression of schwarzbier (Waterloo Dark). May be as a good winter beer, full-bodied, and more sweet then bitter. The logo is cool too. Radek Kliber (7483) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 31, 2004
Light sweet, fruity aroma. Fairly clean, but suffers from same problem as many local brothers do - to much dry carbonation. Other than that fairly soft texture, with hinted roasted malt. Simple , beer that does nor shout for attention . I would not call this true Schwarz. TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 12, 2004
Aroma is sweet, molasses, chocolate. Pours an opaque brown, tan head quickly evaporates. Style points on appearance for stubby bottle and cool wild boar logo. Body is thin, porter like. Drying hop bitterness in the finish with some astringence. Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2004
The description doesn’t lie. It is quite refreshing for a dark beer and you can get it in stubbies! Nothing special about the aroma or taste. Just a solid drinking beer when you want a little more body and taste than a blue or bud. JadoreBlanche (114) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2004
On tap at Scots Corner London Ontario. Dark brownish black body, with creamy thick head. Aromas of coffee, molasses and nuts. Tastes of slight malt, and coffee. Very smooth and light beer. Easy to drink! One of my favorite dark beers, however not like any dark beers I have had.
