on tap at the source, arguably the best schwarzbier out there. Light roast, light body, very high drinkability. Touch of sweetness. commonmac (1245) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Tap at the brewpub with ECBT crew. Cola brown color with tan head. Nose has toasted marshmallow and roasted malt characteristics. Taste has a little bit of a chocolate malt/milk feel. Subtle smoke notes. Mouthfeel is relatively thin. Maybe some mild nutty traits with roasted malt continuing throughout consumption. Actually better than expected. Nice to meet you, Mr. Black. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014

2013-04-28. Very dark brown black body, small foamy tan head. Modest aroma, dry roast. Hints at fruit? Flavour is similar, modest dry roast, fairly clean, dilute dark malt. Feels a but too light overall. Average to light bodied palate, carbonation suits it. Less fruity and a touch less roast but otherwise fairly similar to the porter. Decent but just okay overall.

6 oz. pour @ the brew pub. Nose of light roasted malt and some lager yeast. Flavors of Chocolate malt and light smoke with the lager yeast noticeable again. Body is lighter which is NOT negative. Gives it added drinkability. Decent for the style. I would really like to have had a bit more chocolate and hop bitterness. This really could be much better if they refine the recipe.

A dark reddish brown schwarze with a thin creamy brown head. In aroma, more like a chalky kolsch with light roastiness. In mouth, a light watery beer with faint chocolate malt, chalky notes, boring. On tap at brewpub, July 12 2010 Fred82 (2324) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2010
On tap at Burlington Flatbread’s Beer Loves Cheese 2010j12601 (11571) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Aroma : Caramel, roasted malt, light raisins. Very light nose overall. Light hints of smoke. A bit grainy and nutty. Nice maltiness
Taste : Nice caramel, lots of raisins and a bit of liquorice. Little hint of smoke. Taste rather strong compared to nose.
Overall : Light body, drinkable and very refreshing.
On tap at American Flatbread. Pours a deep brown to black with a medium sized beige head. Roast all over, a touch of plastic hiding behind it. A bit on the thin side, but with such a low ABV that’s probably to be expected. Nice roast character carries through before a slow roast bitterness. Tasty.

Draft at the brewpub. Aroma a nice malty smokiness. Red black body, off-white head. Tastes of caramel malt, moderately sweet, with a smooth malt finish.
