Overall 90/100

A very solid offering, bloggers are generally very forgettable for me. Was remarkably robust in creamy. Had subtle notes of coco and smoke. Was toasty and flavorful yet extremely smooth and balanced. In fact, they don't come much smoother than this. Almost had an oatmeal stout texture.

Final verdict: killer Black Lager and I would love to see it again~

Poured at the wonderful Duckworth's, Park Road, Charlotte, NC...

Pours with a minimal head on a roasty coffee bomb... with mocha lacing, loads of dark roasty grains, very unexpected flavor in this lager thin brew. Complete surprise. Faint sweetness in the finish too. Very nice brew - one of my faves from the series.

Light-medium body with light carbonation. Lovely dark but clear mahogany body with a decent tan head. Very lightly sweet upfront. Good balance. More dark roasted grain flavor than expected.
