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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a dark black, nearly opaque with some brown/ruby highlights around the edges. At first a two finger tan head rises. That recedes to a ring that sticks throughout. Spiderweb looking lace is left behind.
S: Roasted malt, baked bread, bitter bakers chocolate. Herbal, with a bit of buttery malt (maybe some diacetyl).
T: Roasted malts up front with baked bread and bitter dry chocolate. I get that buttery, almost diacetyl flavor again, but not bad. A lagerish and earthy, mineral kind of flavor in the finish.
M/D: A light to medium body. Well carbonated and crisp. Finishes dry, and smooth. Really easy and enjoyable to drink. For sure a session lager.

I really enjoy this. Maybe a bit to much buttery malt to make this exceptional for me, though it is not over barring. Still very good, and one I will be getting more off.

Pours a black color. 5/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, pale malt, hops, hint of roasted malt, hint of wheat, and slight pine. Fits the style of a Schwarzbier. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, pale malt, hops, hint of roasted malt, hint of wheat, and slight pine. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.
