Dark brown, porter like with a 1" beige head...head falls to a cap, then ring quickly...leaves a little lacing.
Very muted nose...a little roasty malt and not much more.
Had to let it warm way up - too cold at first and not much flavor. As it warmed the roasted malts were noticable....tastes decent and simple.
Comes across the mouth thinner than it looks like it will - medium carbonation and a plus one because it never gets cloyingly sweet.
Overall I thought it was an OK beer - there are definitely other Black Lagers I would choose first but this is easy to drink and not un-enjoyable.
Serving type: bottle

poured from a ~15oz can into a pint glass.
A: Thick beige head that falls slowly and clings to the glass. Nice black color, clear and dark brown along the edges.
S: Bread, very light roast, a little earthy.
T: Smooth malty start, a surprisingly strong bitter kick which lingers. Pretty simple.
M: Light, smooth, creamy carbonation.
O: Nice clean black lager. Easy drinking with a light roasted character and smooth mouth.
Serving type: can
