Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: anhigdon on 10-22-2013

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.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark brown color, with a short off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with mildly sweet flavors of coffee and chocolate. Then some breadiness comes in from lager yeast and a hearty malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

A- Black bodied ale poured into my glass but some light pierces the very edges. A one finger white cap builds up to half a finger. Fizzy, foamy head falls to a ring quickly. Lacing is a mix of spots and webs.

S- Roasty grains come in smoothly reminding me of a Milk Stout in a way. Milk chocolate, biscuit, roast cereal grains and slight fruits from the yeast.

T- The roast profile from the aroma carries over but much more lager yeast comes into play in the flavor. Light fruits like apple and some bready yeast notes. Light cocoa powder, cereal, biscuit and toast grains form the base.

MF- Medium bodied overall with fairly high carbonation. While the carbonation is high, it does bring out a smooth, creamy texture onto the palate.

Promising aroma leads to just a decent flavor. The smooth malts in the smell get mixed up with a decent lager yeast profile and it feels a bit watered down.
