Notes/Commercial Description:
Big, Bold, and Black. This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

This ones pours chocolate brown in the glass with a pillowy brown head. The scent is some roast and lots of chocolate. The taste follows through. It's a rich coffee-like chocolate flavor. Lots of flavor in this one, and you get the booziness but not a burning heat. Very well crafted beer and the mouthfeel is true to style with the lager body.

Impressive, frothy beige head. Leaves lots of chunky and webby lace on the glass. Dark, dark brown color where light only comes through on the very edges of the glass.

Chalky, dark cocoa aroma.

Starts with chocolate malt flavor. The malted aspects of the darker, more coffee-like malts show up in the swallow. Relatively thin body; high carbonation. Long aftertaste of dark cherry and the aforementioned mocha. I don't notice the alcohol despite the level of it.
