On tap at Vickery Park in Plano.
The beer pours a black color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of roasted malt, as well as some very light smoke and some light chocolate. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of roasted malt, as well as some chalky, powdery chocolate and some grain notes. The beer is fairly dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

This has to be the best drinking Black Lager in Texas. I literally pounded back a pint of this the other day. It was like I just got done running a 5K and slammed a gatorade. One of the most session-able beers I've had in a while. Well done, but I'm not surprised, Live Oak makes some of the finest beers in TX.

A friend brought a growler of this by. Pretty fantastic overall.
Pours very dark brown to black, hints of deep red when held up to the light. Very nice clarity.
Lots of malt on the nose, not much discernible by way of hops, but that's as it should be. A little toasty and biscuity notes cmoe through.
Taste is great. Good malty backbone with a well-balanced amount of hops as well. Roasty flavors come through on the back end and it provides a remarkably clean finish.
Mouthfeel is great all the way down, smooth and well carbonated.
Overall I could drink this beer all day and was disappointed to only have one growler to split.

On tap at Nobi Public House in Webster, Texas.
Wow. Live Oak does it again. This is the 4th beer of theirs I have tried and all have been great.
Primus is still my favorite, but I believe I like this more than their Hefe.. which is high praise indeed. Their Pilsner is very good, but my least favorite.
I'm new to this style, so I don't have any way to compare it to any other versions..but I look forward to trying some different ones in the future. All in all... I love Live Oak.
