Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: anhigdon on 10-22-2013

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.

Type: 12-oz. beer
Glass: Modern Times pint glass
From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $8.99 (w/ a VONS card for a 6-pack
Purchased: May 20, 2014
Consumed: May 21, 2014
Misc.: Born on date of March 13, 2014

Poured a dark brown, slightly black color with 1-to-2 fingers of tan head. Average semi-layered foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention.

Smelled cigarette smoke, smoky fire, dark chocolate, slight vomit, coffee malts, and faint notes of toffee and caramel. Not too appealing.

Tasted wood fire, creamy dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, cocoa powder and slight bitter coffee malts.

Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.

This beer had its moments. Some good things and bad things, but I’ll finish my six-pack and move on.

Nothing i wished for in a beer i dreamed about. Huge hype around this beer begin as its the beer of The Chive, cracked the bottle and immediately got smacked with a delightful smell of bold dark flavors and hints of coffee, but the taste dosnt compare, leaves you wanting more, wishing it had that one last thing to make it a great beer. It begs for a bite at the end and it dosnt deliver. and to add to the all around flavor its flat as a pancake. very let down by this beer.

Pours a very nice clean/clear dark golden brown color, very nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger fizzy light tan head, with some nice sticky lacing, which disappated quickly. The nose is malty. The taste is malty, not much going on with this one, watery. Light body, with a slightly dry/bitter finish. Overall, too macro for me.

HOME RUN. Walk the line between a porter and lager. Fantastic all around winter beer.

12 oz bottle dated May 2014.

Poured near black but clear reddish-brown, topped by a very good tan head that leaves nice lacing.

Aroma: a bit herbal, vegetal and hop dominated with too little from dark malts -- clearly off style.

Flavor: better and truer to style, but lacks the level of dark roasted grain expected.

Feel: a bit thin even for style. Medium carbonation.

O: OK, excepting aroma, but a notch below average for style overall.
