Draught at C’est What, Toronto, as Dark Lager
Black color; small head. Light aroma of roasted malts. Dry and lean mouthfeel; nice moderate roastiness; correct bitterness.
Balanced, good.

Ferris (16107) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Draft - Light roast malts and some pale malt sweetness. Deep brown with a nice beige head. Roast malts, vegative bitterness and almost a bit of farmhouse and manure in the finish. Toasty roast or toffee sweetness is not there. Odd long light bitter finish.

Lubiere (14127) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
A dark brown lager with a thick brown head. In aroma, nice grassy chocolate with herbal hops. In mouth, a nice grassy chocolate with light herbaceous hops, well made.

Sammy (12486) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
So-so shwartz. Enjoyed at Wvrst. Black bodied, with lots of lace. Like a nitro beer, as missing taste, kind of watered down sweet with licorice finish. Basic roast taste. Would like more body.

jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
2012-07-27. Black with a nice tan head and lace. Dry roasty aroma has fruity espresso like character. 6+ Flavour has similarly fruity and roasty flavour. Finishes quite dry with lingering dry fruity character of coffee grounds. Average palate is okay, but too thin to support the beer. Very much not to my taste, too dry and roasty. On tap at Volo as "Black Lager", Toronto

JoeMcPhee (9459) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2012
Tap at Burger Bar. Pitch black pour with a tight lasting off-white head. Sticky lacing. The nose is lovely. Soft roast over a little bit of toasted malt. Medium-bodied but nicely clean. There is a nice toastiness tha works. No complaints about this one. It's a fine schwarzbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012
[4623-20120727] Tap. Smoked nutty coffee grounds aroma. Black body has a red hue with a quick foamy light brown head. Tart coffee roasted nut malt flavour. Full body. Interesting but a little heavy on the roast. (7/3/7/3/14) 3.4
(Called "Dark Lager" @ Volo, Toronto, ON)

solidfunk (9224) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Pours black with decent head. Smells a little coffeeish. Palate is very light, typical of style. There’s some coffee in the head, a little bitterness in the front of the taste but almost no aftertaste. Very typical of style. On tap at volos.

3.5
blankboy (7735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2012
Cask at Cask Days 2012. Twenty-seventh beer of the fest. Pours a very dark brown with red hues and an average size bubbly tan head. Malty aroma, lightly roasted, along with light hops and hints of vanilla and chocolate. Nice chocolaty flavour, also lightly roasted -- simple but pleasant. Average bodied. Really good.
