this is an exceptional black lager, one of the better ones i have had in a long time, and certainly one of the darkest! i expected a euro type "dark" lager that is basically amber, they seem to call everything that isnt golden dark, but this pours like a stout, with a big rich head on it and a near black base, not super dense looking but with a great depth of color for the style. the smells is neatly roasty with a strong coffee suggestion and plenty of char, ash, and earthy bitterness. the lager yeast is bready but clean, lots of character from it obvious in the nose as well. i get light molasses and even blackberry jam when i smell deeply. the flavor is excellent, kind of simple but i like that in a beer like this more often than not, with more coffee underneath the dark roasted barley. dry as they go, with a german grain vibe to it somewhere in the middle, a fuller body than a lot of these have, but exceptional drinkability with its smoothness and carbonation, a really solid beer from a technical standpoint too, patient lagering and excellent attention to detail. my first beer from these guys, well ahead of modest expectations, this was great!

A delicious stout. Rich, roasted malty taste. A dark, inky look and a rich roasted smell. The taste is smooth (a 5.00% ABV) but it's smooth, rich and malty taste with no bitterness. High Point adhere's to German Beer Purity Standards, and it wonderful to get so much flavor out of so few ingredients.

Nice dark roast and coffee flavors in this tasty, old-world style lager. I'd definitely pick up a six pack if the fine folks at Ramstein bottled it.
