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.

There is not a whole lot to this beer. It tastes fine, but is lacking the toasted maltiness and flavor of coffee. Was hoping for a little bit more out of this one.

It essentially has the general feel of a watered down porter, as others have said before, but it would be a great alternative for somebody who is a fan of Guinness.

It may have a chocolate or coffee note at the beginning but has a mild tart finish that reminds me of licorice. My favorite beers are IPA's but this is a pleasant change. And if my local distributor still has it on sale at $17 and change....I would but another case.

i think this is a great beer!...... people complain about the lightness of this stout-like lager, but i think it is a unique perspective and good in its own right. coffee and chocolate notes on a full flavored black lager yet is lighter then most porter or stout beers. this lager is a great dark beer to get wasted on! very comparable too guinness.

This stuff tastes like a good stout or porter that is watered down and leaves you hanging. I was told over and over that this is good stuff so I dropped 9 bucks on a sixxer and was seriously disappointed. High price for a lager that tastes like watered down chocolate and coffee. Won't buy again. Bud light black crown is better and cheaper. Crap beer. Don't waste your money
