Bottle. Very dark brown, dark roast aroma, a bit of manure. Dark caramel flavour, roasty undertones. Nice enough. Oakes (19010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Dark red-brown like intense sticke, aroma has mellow caramel/toffee, nice character. Sweet, there’s a strong coffeeish overtone, good balance but the malts get a bit husky late. Ok effort, nothing Dusseldorf about it but ok strong amber type. Ferris (16696) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2014
Draft - Toasted malts, cocoa and almost soured milk. Jet black with a decent beige head. Toasted malts, slight burnt notes, tobacco, smoke and a bitter finish. I quite like this, but don’t get any of the proposed flavours, especially vanilla. vadie (1257) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
Marron foncé avec un petit col marron. L’arôme du malt torréfié, du chocolat, les fruits noir, et de la vanille. Le goût est légèrement sucré avec les même caractéristiques que l’arôme. Carbonatation moyenne-faible. stantheman (1101) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A black beer, seemingly resembling a stout, but lighter in flavour. Very enjoyable. Coffee and chocolate overtones. Not very complex, but what the hey!

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver Gerbeer (4048) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
Black color with brownish compact head. Aroma of roasted malt, roasted nuts, a bit metallic. Strong roasted malt flavor, with a hint of coffee and roasted nuts; rather dry; the bitterness seems strong, with a disturbing chicory-like bitterness, and light metal impression.
650 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with moderate head. Arromas of liquorice, nuts, spice, and rubber. Flavors of dates, yeast, dark chocolate, and spice. Slightly sour finish. LarryBeast (616) - - DEC 12, 2013
650ml bottle. Brownish black with medium brown head. Big roast aroma: roasted nuts, brown sugar, cocoa, brine, charred wood. Full-bodied with lots of flavour. Has a unique salty sweetness about it and a nice rounded mouthfeel. GothGargoyle (2588) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Clearish brown with a small pale head. Aroma is dates, toffee. Light on the palate with a bittersweet finish. Taste is toffee, hint of orange zest. Crit (4065) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Black,small dense tan head.Vague roasted nose.Spicy yeast palate,light roast and light alcohol heat.Medium hop finish.In my mind this is not a Schwarzbier
