Picked this bottle up at the "brewery" yesterday - a beautifully re-purposed church in Virgil that will be the site of future brewing after the tanks get installed later this year. Have thoroughly enjoyed this beer on tap at several Kitchener & Stratford establishments and wanted to visit/support the new brewery.
Unfortunately, much prefer the mouthfeel of this beer on draught as this bottle strikes me as thinner and less carbonated than I’d choose. Still pours an attractive near-black, albeit with a limited coffee-coloured head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted dark malts with a bitter edge and a hint of anise. Not an element I'd ever noticed before, so it may be my imagination. Pleasantly complex flavour of dark malts with some chocolate tones, ending with a nicely dry finish. Definitely a decent black lager.
Think this beer will appeal to a wide audience and the brewery is likely to become a real attraction in the Niagara area. Congratulations, Silversmith!

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.
