This is an exceptional beer. I think the organic ingredients make a huge difference.

this beer is blacker than dikembe mutombo. it's a little watery but tasty, smooth dark lager. this one and full sails ''session black'' are amongst the top as far as black lagers go for me.

Never been a big lager fan, but this has a surprisingly good stout/porter like flavor without being overpowering. Could have been a bit heavier but still very drinkable.

I thought this was so tasty for a "Lager." Roasty and burnt but still light. Nicely done for sure.

This is the kind of brew people should consider for a session beer. Low ABV, nice malt character, light roast on the palate, crisp lager finish which is great in hot weather, nicely hoppy without being overly bitter, and doesn't have the watered down quality that is infecting session IPAs left and right.
