3.7/5  rDev -1.1%

I picked this beer up on a grocery run and as a fan of black lagers, I was looking forward to trying this beer.

It poured straight black into an English pub glass. There was very little head, which was a shame because I was expecting something like a Guiness picture but that is ok. There is some lacing but not very much, which again was another surprise.

Think of the blackest liquid you can picture in your head and this is pretty much what it looks like in a glass. Although it doesn't necessarily look appetizing, the taste definitely makes up for much of it. Strong hints of perfectly roasted malts and coffee, hardly any barley or hops. It reminds me of sipping on a cold, black coffee.

The smell isn't anything too special, smell like any other decently strong black lager would.

It goes down as easily as water and if I didn't know any better, I'd think I was drinking ice coffee. I prefer my beers to have a bit more body to it but I cannot deny how natural it slides down.

Overall, not my favorite black lager or even close to it, but not a bad choice. If you are in the mood to try something new or into organic beers, this might be the one for you.

On tap at the Mellow in G-boro.Poured a deep dark chocolate color with a tinge of ruby,a thinner off white head atop.Earth and bitter chocolate in the nose,not much sweetness other than slight molasses sweetness.Earthy with a light bitter chocolate notes on the palate,a little brown sugar/molasses sweetness in the finish.Not complex but tasty,light and easier to drink.

Poured from bottle (best by 06/13/14) into a tulip glass

A- pours black with one finger off white brown head, leave good lacing and a lasting cap.

S- roasted/ charred malt, semisweet chocolate that you can easily smell before you put your nose in the glass!

T/M- very light sweetness with a strong bittersweet chocolate and sharp hit of carbonation in the beginning that ends full and smooth. Yum!

O- a great sessions beer that tastes great from the first one to the last, no matter how many you have =]

3.9/5  rDev +4.3%

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.

(Served in a footed strange)

A- This beer pours an opaque black body with a boiling big bubbly light tan head that sticks to the glass in sheets. There is a gentle carbonation of microbubbles.

S- The dark pine hops with clean black malt hints are lagered smooth and finish with a flinty note that grows a bit as it warms.

T- The light clean dark roasted malt is clean with a slight chalky note and a clean slightly dry finish. The green hop hint lingers with a faint roast note comes through.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel with a gentle fizz.

O The crisp clean lagered beer has full fresh dark malt and a nice support of hops. Very drinkable and tasty.
