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.

Pours dark black with little to no head. Smells like Bud light. Tastes fairly bland. This beer was very underwhelming. It starts watery and ends creamy. It tastes a lot like marshmallows. Some coffee notes find their way through as well. Overall I was not impressed. It's a decent beer but not the full-bodied experience I was expecting. It's OK.

Poured from a longneck into a shaker pint glass. A moderate pour produces about a 3/4 inch off-wheat creamy head that dissipates down to a thin sheen with sticky lacing all around the glass. The color is on the light side for this style of beer, and is a relatively deep but still very transparent yellowish brown with pretty high carbonation.

Lots of biscuit malt aroma on the nose, along with some toasted grain and earthy hops. Coffee-like flavors are apparent along with some very biscuity malt, with maybe just a bit of unsweetened chocolate, particularly on the finish, which is pretty dry but with maybe some lingering dark fruit undertones along with the earthiness. Creamy mouthfeel. It does have a full-bodied feel for a lager.

I bought a six pack of this beer a few days ago. The first one I tried seemed to be overly toasted, to the point of tasting like coffee that's been on the burner too long. I don't know if there's some variety between bottles, but this particular beer lacked the over-toasted, charred flavor, or perhaps the biscuit just balanced out the toastiness better. Above average scores all around.

12oz bottle in a pint glass
back yard bbq

its a light pour with a dark body

I with there was more of an odor to enjoy but it seems fairly plain.

its definitely not a bad beer, but nothing to write home about and its not one I would make a special trip to the store for.

I'm starting to get into black lagers more and more now so I will revisit this beer later and see how I feel about it.
