Not flavorful enough. I was expecting more of a smoky flavor that comes with black lagers.

L: very dark brown, slightly clear, one-finger head, thick white lacing
S: Light caramel, roasted malt
T: Slightly sweet, slight coffee, chocolate finish. Not a heavy flavor
F: Medium-body, nice carbonation
O: It's what exactly what I expected from a black lager. Nothing special and a well made beer.

Wow! I thought this would be real porter-like since it pours so dark in color. But it is a really smooth malty-sweet tasting beer categorized like it is a labeled as a lager. Great stuff!
