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.

3.64/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Had in a nonic pint. Bottled on date 12/13/13.

The body is a dark maple syrup that starts to look black. The plasticy cap gets to almost two-fingers in width, and begins to die after about a minute, sheet lacing on the sides.

The aroma is chalky with some tangy, peppery rye bread malt. There is also an underlying bouquet of roasty nuttiness. This is more on the sweet side, one note though.

The palate is very similar to the nose; chalky bread malt, some additions of cocoa powder, and a building roasty note on the finish. The nuttiness is present near the finish as well with the roast. Dark malt lovers out there will like this.

KCCO Black Lager has a more watery feel, but nice building creaminess when swished around the mouth. It goes down easy, more crisp and slick.

KCCO is not going to blow a seasoned beer drinker out of the water, but the easy going nature and pleasant malt flavors should keep one interested enough to enjoy. I would gladly have this again.

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

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.
