HOME RUN. Walk the line between a porter and lager. Fantastic all around winter beer.

i think this is a great beer!...... people complain about the lightness of this stout-like lager, but i think it is a unique perspective and good in its own right. coffee and chocolate notes on a full flavored black lager yet is lighter then most porter or stout beers. this lager is a great dark beer to get wasted on! very comparable too guinness.

Bottle to Nonic pint glass

A: Quarter inch off-white head; fine carbonation that dissipates after a minute. Opaque, red/amber appearance (with back-light it is quite red, and without it is brown).

S: Chocolate; no other discernible aromas.

T: Light chocolate flavor, almost like a diluted porter. A hint of toasted malts.

M: Light, coarse carbonation. Water consistency with the finish; no mouth coating or feeling “phlegmy.”

O: Porter taste without the porter feel. I enjoy chocolatey porters more than any other beer; I honestly wasn’t expecting that flavor with this beer. I was just expecting a regular lager that happened to have a dark color. I was greatly surprised and pleased. On a hot day like today, it’s refreshing to get such flavor from a light-feeling beer.

I like this beer. Nice toasty flavor, light on the palate, but plenty of flavor. Not overly complex, but interesting enough to keep your attention. A solid and satisfying beverage.
