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.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 12:50-3-FEB 16-14. Sampled on March 15, 2014.

It pours more brown than black with little to no head but it does have decent clarity.

The aroma has a kind of dark malt and grainy m alt character with a mild bitterness. It does not come on strong.

Light to medium body.

The dark malts are more notable in the taste but something still seems a little bit off. It evolves to a slight hop bitterness at the end. Relatively drinkable.

Bottle from Bert's
Clear dark brown color with ruby highlights and a smallish off white head that dissipates quickly. Caramel malt with a hint of chocolate and crusty bread makes up the majority of the aroma. The flavor is what I expected from the aroma. Toasted bread and light caramel and chocolate. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick smooth mouthfeel. Decent beer but less chocolate creamy mouthfeel than I usually expect from the style.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.
A: Thin head w/ little to no lacing. Dark in color.
S: Notes of chocolate and roasted malt
T: Chocolate, sweetness and roasted flavors from malt. Not much hop character.
M: Light bodied but expected for the style of beer.
O: Seems like a mass-produced product vice a craft brew. A little bland for me.
