This is by far the best offering from New Belgium I have had - and without a doubt the best black lager I've ever had as well. The dang thing didn't look like a lager (it looked like a Guinness), it didn't taste like a lager - way much richer and full bodied, and it sure didn't feel like one (not so carbonated to take away from the tasting experience.) I don;t know if this is a sessionable beer, but for me it certainly will be in the future...

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet and malty. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, sweet, very easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.
