Brew Moon Black Hole Lager 8/20/08 (on tap, Brewpub. Pours black with tan head. Dark chocolate, hops, black coffee, and roasts in the nose. Flavor is similar to some lighter stouts I’ve had, but evident lager-qualities help avoid style confusion. Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me in hindsight, but I do remember that this beer never got truly bitter, so I’ll say that the mid-palate features some sweetening malt, almost a licorice flavor. Overall, this is a solid, flavorful brew, probably tops from this brewpub.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer tastes like a stout (roasted black patent taste) without the body, and like a schwarzbier without the smoothness; strange, and not much more
