A fine Schwarzbier that could be confused with a traditional brew from Germany. The flavors are immediately quite noticeable.

In front the front, a light roasted malt. A hint of chocolate and cocoa and coffee. Some bitterness then onto a lager yeast drying in the back end.

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.
