Schwarzbier |  5.10% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A toast lager with notes of chocolate and coffee. Unlike a heavy porter or a stout it’s amazingly light, crispy, and sessionable. KCCO Black is a delicious misfit.

Brewed & Bottled by Redhook Ale Brewery.

AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20

Pours out to a generous beige head that laces well and very deep brownish black color. Aroma is slightly nutty, coffee-like malt with a good dose of Munich and pilsner malts, much like a Dunkel. Flavor is a blend of sharp roasted grains, sweet decocted malts and a touch of noble hops. Mouthfeel is medium-light and refreshing. Overall a good call.

I enjoy Schwarzbier's but some are better then others.
This one was dark but not black, nice body but some after taste.
Not one I would seek out all the time.

I have no idea why today has been so filled with bottled lagers, but that is the way that The Great Bottle Purge of 2014 is progressing. I have a feeling that I will soon revert to form, however, and break out the AIPAs.

From the bottle: "A Resignation recipe brewed in collaboration with Redhook"; "Resign from the Routine".

If you know anything about my operations here at Chez Woody, you know that I often (usually) employ a very heavy hand in conducting my pours. This is especially true when it is a dark-colored beer as it makes the pseudo-cascade that much more visible. I watched gleefully as it settled into two-plus fingers of dense, rocky, light-tan head with good retention. My BJCP app tells me that the color is Coppery-Brown (SRM = > 17, < 22), but I would call it Mahogany. Once more, the clarity in a lager is stunning! NE-quality calibre and I plan to listen to an interview with Val Midwest shortly. Nose had a burnt charcoal smokiness. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, which is okay in a lager. The taste had a pleasant smokiness that actually put the flavor in Mikkeller's Rauch Geek Breakfast to shame. Finish was semi-dry, sort of smoky and definitely a real find!
