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.

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.

The bottle says it was brewed by Red Hook Brewery for Resignation Brewery, using a Resignation recipe. Pours a fairly dense brown color with plenty of reddish highlights coming through. Light tan head, frothy, with a good size on a hard pour. Head retention is good. Thick bands of lacing on the glass.

Aromas is fairly good: roasted malt is featured but there is a little coffee and some bitterness. Flavor is similar to smell. Surprisingly hoppy.

Mouthfeel is a little light but crisp and nicely carbonated.

Overall a pretty decent lager.
