3.1/5 rDev -20.7%
Black with a big bubbly head and lacey. A strange sulpher aroma. Wine like initially, and a chocolate taste, thinner than expected for the style.Roasted, but some astringency in the finish. so-so drinkability owing to flaws. Private Beaus buying club bottle..

Pours a deep, deep, deep, near-black red. Nice thick off-white head.
Dark read fruit with just a bit of roastiness on the nose.
Sweet dark fruit gives way to bittersweet chocolate, verging on coffee.
Almost porter-like. Really complex dark malt flavours, but supremely drinkables. Nice stuff.

Appearance: It has a nice almost jet-black color to it with some ruby hues shining through. It has a nice thick mocha head that dies down moderately slow and leaves nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of chocolate, sweet roasty malts, caramel and eathy hops.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has alot of chocolate, a nice roasty character, light caramel and a decent earthy bitterness.
Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Props to Beau's on making such a great Schwarzbier.

On tap at BarHop, for the Black and Orange Hallowe'en event. Served in a snifter - described as an imperial schwarzbier. Wild Oats #23.
Black with some deep red translucence, dense crimson brown head with good lace and moderate retention. Nose of heavy chocolate and dark malts, earthy with even some caramel. Taste has tons of dark malt character, some bakers chocolate but lesser than the nose, even some oats or wheat in here perhaps? Caramel as well. Medium full feel and medium carbonation that's almost perfect after a bit of swirling down. Only a touch of alcoholic warmth. A delicious black beer, something to certainly revisit and perhaps one's of Beau's best offerings.
