mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2008
Pours a dark brownish-black with a nice cream head with poor retention. Aroma is lovely! Dark chocolate/cocoa, fresh coffee beans, light alcohol. Nice! Tastes quite pleasant; light chocolate, slightly toasted, light diacetyl, nutty, light toffee and vanilla. Body is creamy and chewy but lacks carbonation. Very, very tasty! Tastiest Schwartzbier that Ive had to date.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2008
70% Cocoa dominates but is nicely rounded with some deeply roasted mexican coffee beans. Such a pleasant nose to welcome! Black is correct, as in the colour. No seeing through this one! Oh oh, things go badly in the mouth! There are some roasted nuts to mention, but an overpowering bittnerness takes hold immediately and gets worse as it goes through the palate. The finish is a mess and it follows with a lingering woody throat. What happened here? It all started so well!

What a tasty beer. Dark colour. Sweet, which is why I like it. Prunes, dark chocolate, coffee.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 11, 2010
Pours black with ruby highlights. The head is large and an off white colour. The aroma is very roasty and ashy, with some vegital notes and hints of chocolate and coffee. The flavor is light and dry. The slight vegital note persists the entire palate. Not bad, just not great.

BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Tasting at JoeMcphees. Lighter brown color, thin head. This beer has a spicy carbonation that jumps out at you with the first sip. Smokey with a very light mouthfeel.

341ml bottle. Deep mahogany colour with thin beige head. Faint roasty toasty aroma, bready, a little coffee, wood smoke. Leaning towards very sweet. Light-bodied and a bit thin. Average carbonation with a clean finish.

Sask89 (514) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 19, 2010
Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts, mild coffee with a slight smokey nutty scent as well. Taste is a light sweetness with the same roasted malts evident and a mild bitter finish. Medium body, smooth on the palate and average carbonation. Overall a pretty good beer.

the wood and smoke flavors compliment the dark malts very well. brown with a small head that is fairly light. the spice is a bit unexpected.

Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
It pours a black color with some ruby hues with a small off white head. It has a small amount of carbonation. The aroma has some roasted malts and a coffee presence. The flavor is similar to the aroma. There is some roasted malts,coffee,some hints of nut and chocolate. There seems to be a lot of things going on here. But they arent working together. It finishes crisp and a little dry. Nothing special going on here. Not bad but nothing memorable either.

Macadem (103) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 5, 2009
Pours dark brown, with full milky head. smells faintly of coffee, toasted bread and vaguely of chocolate. Full mouthfeel and a nice flavour of grains and coffee.
