Draught at Big Ridge, Surrey, BC mcberko (19172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2009
Black color; persistent creamy head. Light aroma of ashes. Weak body, with some roasted malt (acceptable), but also a too high ash and dust feeling (disturbing). The final is sharp and metallic. Not a bad beer, but a bad execution.
Pours a nice black with an off-white head. Flavour is roasted malt, but quite generic other than that. Goes down smooth. More drinkable than most macros. Oakes (19010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle. Medium brown. No head. Aroma is toasty, a bit nutty. Light body, and a bit toasty. Too light, though I will say there are supermarket schwarzbiers in Germany like this.. Ferris (16687) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle - Toast and smoky notes. Deep brown with a beige head. Very light and thin caramel flavours. Taste is very boring considering the nose. Sammy (12837) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle from a 6-pak. Black with carb bubbles, soapy light brown head, lace. Aroma of mollasses and malt. Above average carbonation. Some creaminess. A cross between an ordinary brown ale and a shwartz beer, not hitting the style, and the carbonation of a macro.OK drinkability.

Bottle as a part of a variety pack. Pours a near-black brown with a bubbly light brown head. No lace. Nice roast and coffee aromas. Coffee, molasses, roast, moderately dry finish. Not bad! JoeMcPhee (9575) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2009
Tap at Stella’s Tap and Tapas. Dark black beer with a thin brown head. Aroma is of lightly toasted nuts and a little bit of dry cocoa. Medium-bodied with a light DMS character and some faint toasted malt. A light lingering roastiness on the back. Meh. Not a great schwarzbier, but not a bad one either.

Aroma slight hint of black roast , cocoa, slight mineral feel and molasses.
Appearance dark brown, clear with light fizzy top.
Flavour and Palatemid light bodied. Simple structure but approachable and friendly. Proper attempt.
Bottle: Poured a deep clear black color ale with a large light brown color head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt with nice caramel touch. Taste is also a good mix between light bitter roasted malt with some good notes of caramel. Body is a bit thin with good carbonation. Not the most complex beer out there but interesting nonetheless.
