the sam adams black lager is a rich a hearty beer. The coloris a deep black with crimson low lights and a nice tan head. The smell is of rich chocolate barley. Taste like chocolate and lightly smoked malt. The finish is surprisingly mild and that makes it more drinkable that some dark lagers. People that are scared of dark beers should give this one a try it's much less harsh than some out there.
