Notes: Beings never cease. We lay down and perish breath. Decomposition first, then bustling genesis. And upon the gravestones of our yesteryear a vibrant new form takes aim at life. Such a vicious cycle we endure. Quite a righteous revival we have earned. When the decaying entrails of such a meek society wave their wands in the air, the plea of rebirth is heard at such a shrill. From the beleaguered souls of our vengeful confines, we welcome this modern black lager. Bountiful in body, but crisp in delivery, this vessel is blessed with a special blend of boldly-roasted coffee from Onyx Coffee Roasters. For this cup is always full, and its tin forever shines.

12oz can with a date that can't be made out by the naked eye (at least not mine). Opened 5-2-20.
2 finger dense, beige head with very good staying power.
Dark brown / black color lager.
Early wisps of fresh lacing, turns into full sheet on the back side of the glass.
Bold but smooth coffee with cream. Bread dough and roasted malts. Chicory.
Appealing nose.
Black coffee. Strong grind.
Roasted malt with a touch of smokiness and again a strong chicory root flavor.
Light body, medium-low carbonation.
Creamy mouthfeel. Some coffee astringency/acidic biter feel.
Smooth coffee and roasted malt finish in a light beer package.
Very Good.

A: Pours a clear yet opaque dark cola brown in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate ruby red + chestnut brown + garnet red + dark golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy fizzy beige head that reduces to a medium to large sized patch of very thin film covering approximately 65% of the surface of the beer and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of bold freshly roasted + brewed coffee over the top of light to moderate aromas of roasted + charred + caramel malts with minimal amounts of sweetness and light aromas of earthy hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of roasted + charred + caramel malts with minimal amounts of sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of bold freshly roasted + brewed coffee. Finally there are light flavors of earthy hops. There is a light amount of roasty bitterness which fades slowly and the coffee flavors linger well through the finish.

M: Slightly lighter than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp upfront with a relatively clean finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Very enjoyable but you definitely need to be someone that enjoys a black coffee (no milk, no sugar) to really enjoy this beer.
