Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

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.
