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.

Starts off with a good look and a decent smell, however the overall taste disappointed me. For a lager as dark as it was, I expected more, however what I found was a beer that tasted watered down. Honestly, it could have been a very good beer. It had all the elements in place, but something in the process held it back. A little more heft, and a little more kick, and they might have something good. Not bad, but certainly not great. Mediocre at best.

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.

I like this beer. Nice toasty flavor, light on the palate, but plenty of flavor. Not overly complex, but interesting enough to keep your attention. A solid and satisfying beverage.

Looks way darker than it tastes. Hints of molasses. Good.

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.
