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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a medium dark brown body, appears clear, with a wispy, off-white, short-lived head.

Smell: You've got your toast, you've got your roast, but you've not got much of either, really. Just a little smoke, a little basic chocolate, and some fruity esters.

Taste: This one falls into the middle ground between toasty and roasty, but, it's not overly flavorful either way. Intermingled fruitiness, a lil' red berry. Light, spicy, leafy hops with a medium-low bitterness aided by the meager roastiness and edginess of the suds. As it warms, some chocolate emerges. Faintly roasty, drying finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body, not quite watery, though. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not bad, but it feels more along the lines of a standard dark lager and not so much a full-on Schwarzbier.

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.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a cola brown color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a tiny level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is biggest of a roasted malt smell with it also being mixed with some coffee aromas and a tiny bit of cocoa. Along with these smells are some caramel and a little bit of a yeasty smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweet darker fruit flavor of plum and cherry mixed with a milk chocolate and molasses sweetness as well. A roasted malt flavor is present right from the start with it remaining throughout the taste and with the sweeter flavors creating a base flavor for the brew. As the taste advances from the start, a little bit of a nutty flavor and some yeasty flavors come to the tongue. Around the middle of the taste a coffee flavor comes to the tongue with it growing more intense at the end of the taste, leaving a somewhat subdued but sweet and roasted flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation that is average as well. The middle of the road carbonation and body give a decent balance for upholding the darker and sweeter flavors of the brew all while still maintaining a somewhat crisper and easier drinking feel for a black lager of 5.1 %.

Overall – A decent schwarzbier overall. And while a bit on the sweeter side it is rather drinkable with a decent bland of roasted flavors to match the sweet.
