I loved it. Great price and great taste. Dark beer with a delicious flavor. I highly recommend it. To be fair, I am a fan of dark beers already. I saw that this particular beer won a gold medal in 2010, so I tried it. I am a big fan now. Hopefully I can find 6 packs at Total Wine or elsewhere. So far, I've just been buying them in singles to try. Purchased at Total Wine in Sarasota, FL

A: Dark, but not too dark and not too caramely (if thats a word). So really it is dark, but not too light for the style. It is perfect for the style, being a Schwarzbier. If you hold it up to light in a glass it is not see through by any means. Color of it held into the light is caramel and milk chocolate. It is dark period. 1 Finger mocha head.

S: the smell is mostly of coffee notes and a lil bit of bitter sweet chocolate. Gosh a lot of coffee comes from this lager and is quite unexpected, but it is not too heavy at all.

T: Pretty much like a "lite" porter/stout. It has a great coffee/milk chocolate taste but not too strong and has a nice mellow feeling when drinking, so it is easy to drink more than a couple. Which I feel a Schwarzbier/Black Lager should be. It still has hops, but still has complex flavor.

M: Mouthfeel is not lite, but not like a stout/porter. And that is what a Schwarzbier/Black Lager should feel like.

D: Drinkability is amazing very sessionable. It is a great nitecap where you can have a few.

Remember this is a review for the style a Schwarzbier/Black Lager.

Brown Black.
Roasted Nuts, Chocolate, slight Hop smell.
Molasses, Chocolate, dark fruit.
Full bodied carbonation.
This is a premium dark Lager. Very simular to Black Butte Porter. My all time favorite in the dark variety is, the Abyss and the Dogfish, Paulo Santo Marron.I would consider this in a very simular field. If you are looking for a high quality Dark Lager this is a fantastic choice.

I received my first sample of Session Black Premium Dark Lager free from a good friend. Was not sure what to make of this beer from the looks, I was expecting a normal stout. Pulled from the cold fridge and poured into a glass, out flowed the deepest mahogany color with an off-white head. I wanted to allow time for this beer to breathe, nonetheless for unknown reasons I was compelled to quaff it down and was hit with pallet punch of flavors. The aromas of coffee, black cherry and licorice are mixed in with lightly roasted malts and a bit of dark chocolate. I enjoyed every minute of this beer immensely, regrettably some people might find this similar to Guinness.
