3.51/5 rDev +5.7%
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.
