Notes/Commercial Description:
This black lager combines a big roasted malt character with plentiful additions of aromatic hops. Magnum, Cascade, Columbus, Centennial and Cluster in the kettle, hopback and dry hop additions add a piney, resinous, light citrusy flavor and aroma. A bitter finish contrasts the full malty body.

Lovely balance of hops and roasted malts/coffee. Really high drinkability.

Black with a plentiful fine foam head. Lots of glass sticking lace. Both the aroma and taste are a strong and well balanced combination of roasted malt and piney c-hops. Neither overpowers the other. Medium bodied and light carbonation, one of the best bottled beers I can recall.

Pours black but with hues deep within the beer that can attest to it's clarity. I was able to take one photo showing a ruby ring around the bottom of the glass and as I drained my first glass I can also notice subtle shades of brown. The ruby that I observed was like a gem that you might find deep in the earth covered by blackness and brown earth but shining nonetheless. It has a creamy tan colored head of foam that fell slowly and deliberately and left rings. After it was completely subdued by time it left rings of sticky lace and a cluster of bubbles and film on top.

Nose is lovely roasted malt. It verges on nutty but then gives way to bitter chocolate. The hops grace the nose with a faint presence and a sweet breath of orange. A touch of coffee. It's smells deep and abundant. The taste follows the nose all the way and the beer has such graceful hop accents. The orange never intrudes or steals center stage away from the malty character. Smooth dry , crisp blackened malt that is not burnt. The carbonation is ample and keeps it drinking like a lager. A very light bit of caramel and this one finishes with a bit of that bitter chocolate to linger and dry out slowly as the light sweet orange echoes itself from the nose only faintly. There is a bitterness form both the roasted malt and from a bit of hops in the finish.

This one has a subtle devil may care attitude but respects the style completely. Wonderful!
