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.

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!

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.

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.
