Availability: Rotating

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.

Appearance: Pours a fudge brown color with auburn highlights; the impressive mocha head bubbles up into a three-fingered head leaving plenty of lacing dots

Smell: Chocolate-dominant with hints of caramel and coffee

Taste: Chocolate and mocha, up front, with just a hint of vanilla; in the middle, there is also a hint of leafy hop flavor if you are really paying attention; the aftertaste brings on more of the same but also introduces a vague smoky element

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and creamy, with moderate carbonation

Overall: This is a beer I have been looking forward to tasting and, while I very much enjoyed it, I marked the scores down as I didn't pick up the dark fruit element I look for in the top examples of the style

Thanks, cp45, for the opportunity
