Poured into a standard pint glass on 2/9/12. Absolutely delicious!
A - Pours a jet black (deep red when held up to light) with a small one finger, off-white head. Not much lacing, but the black color is really striking. I'm used to stouts and porters, but this is the first black lager I've ever had. 4.0
S - Strong smell of roasted malt and a teensy hint of aromatic hops. Some molasses/burnt sugar notes in the middle. 4.0
T - Delicious malty flavor supported by a slightly bitter backing. Subtle flavors of roasted malt, molasses and coffee come through in the middle. 4.5
M - Medium-bodied and highly carbonated. Tingles all over the tongue but doesn't dampen the flavor at all. 4.0
O - For the price of a (relatively) cheap 12-pack you get a wonderfully well-rounded and extremely drinkable beer. I bought this beer with low expectations and wound up loving it. Full Sail's Session series is exactly what the name implies; these are lovingly crafted beers that taste great but yet are light enough to drink as session brews and not get tired of them. I would HIGHLY recommend this beer to everyone who has yet to try it. For that reason, overall this gets a 4.5

11 oz stubby bottle poured into a nonic.
Pours a very dark brown color with almost no foam. Aroma is is a plum like malty sweetness with not much else.
First sip is a nice sweet malty flavor, with minimal bitterness. Nice plum/fruity flavor that goes down easy. Enjoyable, if a bit simple. I wish there was a little more hop character to diversify this beer a bit. As it stands, it is like a mini malt bomb.
This is an okay beer, I just wish there was more flavor beyond the plum sweetness.
