Bottle from Albertsons. Good attempt at ...? So similar to many European styles, flavorful, but not overpowering...dunkel? porter? pretty good. Will need to resample sometime...

A: Pours a brownish-black with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Toasted malt, dark fruit, and some caramel

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the toasted maltiness and goes into some light caramel sweetness and dark fruit. Finishes with lingering toasted malt

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A very solid black lager that is super easy to drink. Nothing special, but good for something different

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