Well it’s most definitely black with a light tan head. Raisin and earthy nose. Oh nice. That is good. Rich yet refreshing. Thick and just a little sticky. Sweet at first but swapping to a nice raisin and coffee mellowness. Going down very easily. Malts in the aftertaste. If there weren’t other beers I wanted to try before leaving I would be ordering more of this.

Kauge (2119) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 25, 2017
Tap sample at Crafty Coyote. Almost black. Tan head. Really roasty aroma. Molasses sweet, and roasty. Light, smooth, slightly grainy body. Dryish roasty metallic finish. Alcoholic even? Strange stuff. I didn't find it to be very enjoyable.

Raistlin (459) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2017
Pours black with some amber highlights, average head which laces the glass. Aroma is roasty but demure with some twiggy hop tones. Flavour is roasty up front, light bodied, noble hops bite, finish is clean, roasty and crisp.

Black pour. Nice light coffee aroma. Smooth tasting with more coffee notes. Kind of creamy. Really good

Diabobale (541) - ITALY - JUL 23, 2017
Color marrone scurissimo con venature rubino, schouma color nocciola, abbondante ma grossolana e di scarsa tenuta. Al naso note intense di torrefatto, caff? in chicchi e fave di cacao. Scaldandosi vengono fuori le note erbacee e sul finale terrose. In bocca si ripetono nello stesso ordine e intesit?, sul finale prevale l’amaro erbaceo. Corpo leggero e carbonazione spinta.

WillemsUrenkel (2019) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 28, 2017
1 Pint at a restaurant in Niagara On The Falls. Pitch black in the glass, small head. Choco and dark malt on the nose. Taste starts with a lot of choco and roasted malt. Hints of vanilla. Smooth. Increasing choco in the second part. Decent hop in the background but present. Really nice.

3.5
Listigovers (1312) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2017
Black beer with lots of foam. Smells like a roast coffee. Nice light body but lots of Coco and coffee in the flavour, refreshing and smooth, no nutty flavor that I often dont like in schwarzbier. Nice.

BrewWhatIWant (294) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2017
Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and lightly smoky. Taste is pretty mild with notes of roasted malts, a hint of smoke and liccorice and piney, slightly grassy hops. Creamy body and moderate carbonation.

Tranquillity (2507) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2016
Draft. Black body, small beige head. The aroma is malty with licorice, and the taste is full and sweet. Very nice.

3.8
jksipa (1018) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle from the brewery. Dark mahogany pour under a small tan head that fades quickly to a sheet and leaves some sparse lace.Nose is roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, light coffee, a touch of vanilla and hints of dark fruit. Light sweet molasses with a more pronounced chocolate bitterness with lots of roast and hints of smoke. Mouth is medium with a nice dry finish and average carbonation. Quite enjoyable. 8+/4/7+/3+/16-
