Look: Black in color. Soft, khaki-colored head.

Smell: Roasted barley malt. Salt.

Taste: A malty, roasted flavor in the front gives way to a smoked malt middle, finished with a hop bitterness that doesn't have the same assertiveness in every sip.

Feel: Nice body, mouthfeel, and carbonation for a beer of this style.

Very good quality, sessionable, flavorful black lager that reminds me more of a porter or stout.

Good complexity, some heaviness dor a lager, less than expected carbonation. Pair with white fish, lamb.

Crisp but with a good body and mouth feel. Strong malty tastes. Good session beer.

This is a surprisingly good beer that I had with brussels sprouts in winter.
And if that is too precise a pairing, you probably will enjoy it by itself as I did also.
This almost is a classic rendition as I remember the style.
The only improvement I can suggest is I found the hops and roasted malt to dry the mouth a bit too much.

Really nice take on the style. Crisp and clean, refreshing, with a nice roastiness and complexity. A fine sipper for a winter evening fireside. Cheers!
