So-so serviceable dark beer. shwartz. Enjoyed at Wvrst. Black bodied, with lots of lace. Like a nitro beer, as it is missing taste, kind of watered down sweet with licorice finish. A Basic roast taste, a more engaging taste. Would like more body. Still OK drinkable.

Had this beer on a crisp Spring day. Perfect for the weather. Poured dark. Carbonation was spot on with light delicate head. Notes of mocha on the nose that carried through on the palate with a refreshing lager acidity and light body. Nice finish and low alcohol made for easy drinking.

A very good schwarzbier; initial coffee bitterness transforms into sweeter taste of chocolate malts as the brew warms.

I finally tracked this down during a trip to Niagara Falls. Smooth, full flavour of burnt dark malts. Excellent

Appearance- Pours a dark cola brown with a finger of bubbly beige head.

Smell- Roasted malts, cocoa, hint of dark fruits, light earthy hops.

Taste- Roasted malts, moderate bitterness from the cocoa and light earthy hops, and a dollop of dark fruits.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with light-to-moderate carbonation.

Overall - A pleasant schwarzbier with nice roasted malt flavours and earthy hop / cocoa bitterness that lasts well into the finish.

Deceptively dark, lighter-than-expected finish and body.
Not what you'd think after pouring into a frosted glass.
Love the fact that the Founders of Silversmith engaged the local craft-beer scene and
have slowly launched across the markets thereto.

Always bringing some home with the select wines from NOTL.

Awesome.
