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.

3.9/5  rDev +4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

4.01/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: [3.75] Looks black in the glass but is a deep transparent red when held up to the light. Forms just over a finger of pillowy head. There is really nice lacing on the glass. The bottle lists the best by date of 03/03/15 (4+ months away). It does not list the IBU or ABV.

S: [4.00] It presents like a stout. I am getting chocolate and malts.

T: [4.00] Again I get a stout feeling. Roasted malts and chocolate.

M: [4.25] The mouth feel is really smooth and nice.

O: [4.00] I am really pleasantly surprised. This is a really delicious and complex beer for being only 4% ABV. The label says "Black Lager" but if I was blind folded I would call it a stout. This is really sessionable.
