Session Black from Full Sail. Nice dark brown to reddish black color with medium head that
dies down to a thin ring of off white thin beaded foam and light lacing. Nose of roasted grains,
light chocolate, and light sweet malts. Flavor is much like the nose with deeply roasted grains,
yet is not overly roasted letting in some light sweetness and light chocolate flavors shine
through. A nice grain aftertaste and light bittering makes this a great "session" beer as the
name suggests. Pretty high on the carbonation level with a lot of character for such a light
beer. An A plus for the style and the idea.

Cheers

Not a bad dark session lager. The appearance on this was lighter than I was expecting. It is a clear, dark red-ish brown that holding it up to the light looks like a nice strong tea. The half-finger of beige head disappeared quickly but left a small ring around the glass throughout. The nose has nice earthy tones of straw and wood with perhaps a hint of chocolate. Its body is smooth with just enough carbonation to notice. Yet seems exceedingly thin for a dark beer. All things considered I'd have this again.

Pours a clear dark brown with a short-lasting off-white head. Slight lacing. The aroma is dark fruit, roasted malt and a little bit of earth. The taste is similar. The body is is thinner and smooth, with just a hint of carbonation as it finishes. It doesn't have the depth of a Kostritzer, but is still a good beer.
