A German style black lager with a ruby black color. The aroma is a balance of roasted caramel and noble hops whilst in the mouth it shows a delicate bitterness that holds in check malt flavours of caramel and chocolate.

A: thick beige head on a coffee black body with a ruby tint when held to the light
S: coffee, herb spice with a definite smoked malt
T: smoked meaty flavor holds the house together while caramel runs around outside screaming that is loves coffee. The milk chocolate popins in for a second but is hit in the face by the strong coffee bean door man the finish is wanting
M: no bubbles, very light cream but ends dry
O: Black lagers just aren't my thing, they look so hardy and beautiful then seem to fizzle out. This lager does much the same although it's super strong coffee punch could carry it along as a breakfast beer. Light in body and abv but also off balance.

This pours a very dark brown with a dense beige head.

There's a distinct graininess on the nose. Some milk chocolate but behind it all is a weird meaty stock aroma. Maybe from smoked malt?

Toasted malts at the front of the palate, chocolate in the middle and that smokey flavour at the back.

Medium bodied, quite soft in the mouth.

Had it on tap but am reviewing the bottle I brought home from the brewery. True to style it's pretty damn black. A good 2 finger tan head, good lacing to the end. Great nose with bitumen, burnt chicory and a bit o'coffee peeking through. Love the lightish body. Some more smokey, charcoal-like flavours coming through on the palate. A smooth beer to be sure. I quite dig this.
