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.

Poured a deep brown hue with a three finger chunky white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured roasted malts, charcoal and a grassy hop.

The taste offered a very dry roasted barley with the accompanying dry coffee, charcoal and wood smoke. There was a pleasant herbal hop that freshened the flavor.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty black beer.

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.
