Body is translucent dark reddish brown, with a white foamy head that dissipates quickly to a ring, leaving scant lacing on the glass.

Smells lightly roasted malt, nutty, and sweet. Not all that much going on there.

Foundation of a lager, but with some dark malt lending some light coffee and a little caramelized malt sweetness. I am also tasting some roasted walnuts. There is a little mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Decent tasting, although not very complex.

Body is light and has low carbonation, producing a flatish mouthfeel.

A decent tasting black lager that is drinkable but not extraordinary.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a clean, clear dark brown/light black color with about 1/2 inch of off-white head that had low retention and no lacing.

The aroma had a nice grain base and a crisp hop presence. The taste was similar, good, earthy malts accentuated by a bold dose of tangy hops.

The body was good, crisp, smooth and with a bit of a lingering hop bite. Drinkability was very good, you could easily have several of these tasty brews. Overall, a very nice take on the style. I don't know how often this brew makes away from the brewery, but you should try it if you ever see it.
