Six pack from ABC. Less robust than I anticipated.

L: pitch black with inch of tan foam, very enticing.
S: mild chocolate aroma, some caramel.
T: Modestly bitter, mild chocolate, everything hits the palate and passes a short time later.
F: thin, modestly bubbly
O: this beer is certainly smooth. Its appearance might scare away the weak of heart but don't judge it by its cover, this is true to its lager name. As a stout lover I always have a preference for bolder beers but this is well executed for the style.

Black body with a clinging off-white head. Gentle aroma of toasted bread, burnt grain, subtle notes of tar and red grape. Clean. Pretty tasty stuff here - clean and crisp palate, toasty and chocolatey malt character without any heaviness. It's brought down slightly by a faint ashy character. Slight dark malt sourness in the finish along with a hint of dark fruit. Not a bad little beer.

Great look with a huge fluffy head that clings to the glass and has great retention. Smokey and sweet malt with earthy hops and a light lingering bitterness with some charred wood and bittersweet chocolate lingering. Crisp feel and very smooth With a drying finish. Terrific flavor for such a light beer. Nicely done and cool to see it is organically made as there are not many options in the category.

12 oz can marked with a BB date of May 2015.

Huge, foamy tan head over a nearly opaque, dark brown body.
Rich, malty and complex. This drinks like an ale. Creamy smooth mouthfeel mimics a nitro tap origin. Lasting aftertaste of dark malts and earthy/herbal hops.

O: closer to a stout than any black lager I've had, this also may be the best.
