If a stout and a pilsner had a lovechild, it would be Black Thunder. It would also be a miracle, because beer can’t “get it on.” This miniature powder keg starts with a roasted, bread-like complexity but finishes dry and clean like a pilsner. It’s dark, distinctive, and dry.
Hops: German Magnum, Tettnanger, Saaz, Hallertau

Pours black with a tan frothy head. Not a strong Aroma, but it’s a nice malty sweetness. Taste is sweet. Very little roasted or hoppy flavors. What is roasted is a light finish. Light carb and mouthfeel. Very easy to drink. Good example of an interesting beer that doesn’t try to be awe inspiring unique

Nice deep cola coloured body with a brown glow, hints of auburn and violet and a thick, rich, five centimetre tall light brown head. Aroma of milk, nuts, earth, copper, roasted malt and a hint of light coffee. Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt flavour with a lot of earth, some smooth chocolate and coffee flavours and the hints of pecans and walnuts throughout. Aftertaste is well-balanced and showing some good malt notes coupled with a pleasant caramel and toffee sweetness. Overall,a good schwartz with a big nutty and caramel flavour and a subdued yet strong sweet finish that couples well with the rich malts. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whip-In in Austin, Texas on 05-May-2014 for US$2,69 sampled at home in Washington on 06-November-2014.

chocolate, coffee, roasty, almost black, nice head, lightly bitter, light body, moderately thin feel, average carbonation, clean finish. This beer is a beautiful marriage between a crisp lager and a malty, roasty porter. Love it!

popery (1862) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Pours dark brown, looks nearly black without direct light but it’s quite brown when lit. The head is medium-sized and tan in color. Good retention. Lots of bubbles sticking around, coating the top of the beer. Cleanly malty aroma. Nutty with caramel depth. Very light coffee roast. It’s a nice, round malt sweetness. Taste is mild and nutty, again. There’s some malt sweetness. Caramel in the finish. Solid grain flavors. Mouthfeel is pretty normal. Relatively light, medium carbonation. Good beer.
