I got this off a self made mixed six pack from Super Target in Frisco. It poured an opaque dark with thin ercu head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had hints of roast. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation Overall it's a solid beer.

This is the darkest lager I've ever seen. Beer pours a tea color with a white head. The flavor is nice and smooth and malty. Overall this is my first "black" beer and I like it.

Poured out a semi-opaque, jet-black color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled roasty with hints of chocolate. Nice roasty flavor with sweet chocolate and toffee.

Dark brown/red . Aroma didn't come off strong and distinct but could detect roasted malt. Taste was similar,bitter roasted malt with a definite bitter finish. Not my usuall style but it was a pleasant experience and was something I would try again

Pours a red hued brown color, very clear. A thin ring of beige foam, decent cling to the glass.

Smell...not too much there. Vaguely sweet, mildly roasted malt. Faint vanilla and a decent chocolate smell.

The taste is light. Roasted malt without the acrid bitterness that can happen with a porter or stout. Sweetness, some vanilla, and a definite chocolate finish. Caramel-like sweetness, but not overly sweet. Does show the lager characteristics, and there is a bit of a licorice note that develops by the end of the glass.

Feel is lively at first, but feels quite chalky after the fact. Drinks pretty light.

Overall this is a serviceable beer. More refreshing than a porter or stout and that works for a hot day like today.
