Redhook / Resignation Brewery "KCCO Black Lager"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, coded "16:03 1 MAY1714"
$1.83 @ Weis Market, Conshohocken, PA

Interesting Label. Interesting name. I had no idea what it meant so I researched it. It refers to "The Chive" and "Keep Calm and Chive On". I can only assume that the ostrich refers to an ostrich farm in Texas, but enough of that, on to the beer...

Appearance: Clear, deep mahogany brown body. Short head of frothy khaki. Average retention and lacing.

Aroma: A pleasant blend of muted chocolate, soft smoky roastiness, and subtle fruit.

Flavor: More chocolate and caramel than the aroma suggests. The pleasant fruitiness and smokiness remain - both giving far more to this beer than their individual contributions ever could in that they're subtle enough that everything melds together well; while at the same time leaving it remarkably unique. The fruitiness is interesting, particularly in a lager, but it's the smokiness that's key. It's interesting in that it's not really clear as to where it's coming from. There's a subtle edge of roastiness, but this is smokiness - is there even any roast barley at all? And if it's smoked malt, what's the wood - or is it even wood? It almost seems like peat-smoked malt, yet it doesn't come through distinctly in that way - perhaps because there is some roasted malt? It's toasty, and roasty, and lightly coffee-ish. I don't know exactly what's going on, and that's what makes it compelling! I hope more brewers take note of this, sometimes less IS more, and not everything needs to be a 2 x 4 to the head. What makes this beer work is that it's sublime.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied and smooth across the palate with a moderate carbonation level.

Overall: Charming. Thought provoking. Complex, but not overly so. And remarkably drinkable!

This beer pours a clear amber color. The head dissipates immediately. The aroma is of air with a faint hint of caramel. The taste is like water with a faint hint of caramel. The mouthfeel is thin even for an adjunct lager. Overall, this is a really bland beer that I would not drink again.
