Schwarzbier |  5.10% ABV

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.

As a fan of The Chive I wanted to give the KCCO Black Lager a try when I saw it in my local bottle shop. As a whole I am not much of a fan of Black Lagers anyways but still kept an open mind and didn't expect anything earth shattering. This was a HUGE disappointment as I either got an infected bottle or this is just a mindnumbingly bad beer. Tasted and smelled of roasted ammonia. Two sips and I had to tap out. Hope it didn't kill the grass where I dumped it over my deck.

Real let down of a lager. Weak head, watery feel. Less roasts than it is kinda sour.
I was hoping for something fun as I enjoy the kcco vibe but this was clearly not them putting their best foot forward.

I am going to say that this is a skip going forward.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: The color of coffee with ruby coming through. A cream colored head with a film of retention. Little to no lacing.

Aroma: Muted tones of coffee and malts. A metallic tanginess.

Taste: Burnt grains, toasted bread, slight hop sourness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated, sharp.

Overall: This beer was too harsh all around, feeling like a cola with a macro brewery taste.
