3.76/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a medium beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, lager yeast and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready from lager yeast and a hearty roasted malt character. Then some flavors of black coffee and black chocolate come in along with some smokiness in the background. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly smoky.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

LOOK: Nearly full on black, impressive lacing

SMELL: Soft charcoal, milk chocolate, faint oil hop, herbal, toasted bread, dried hay

TASTE: Mild roastiness, smooth, medium bodied, clean, balanced hopping, herbal, faintly salty, brown malt, toasted grapenuts, mildly roasty drying finish

A very sessionable brew, perfect for the winter and is a great substitute if you love Porters. Organic and all if you are into that, and all around great beer.

A: Rich chocolaty-brown. Nice two-finger mocha head.

S: Sweet caramel, low in assertiveness. Coffee and chocolate.

M: Light in body with medium carbonation. A hint of creaminess.

T: Good malt sweetness and cocoa nibs. Low Munich malt notes. Graham cracker sweetness. Slight char on the back. Good and soft undergirding bitterness.

Enjoyed from a 12 oz bottle, this black lager pours a deep dark brown with a nice thick off
white to tan head that dissipates this a thin layer with very nice lacing. Nose of chocolate,
light coffee, lightly sweet malts and hops...all very subtle. Flavors are crisp and very
carbonated with chocolate malts to the back with coffee and hops, mild sweet malts to the
front and sides. Lightly bitter aftertaste from hops and deeply roasted malts. Very nicely
done session lager. Good for the stout or porter drinkers who want something lighter for
an afternoon after mowing the lawn, raking leaves, or shoveling snow.

Cheers
