I really love the new black lager, and a session beer as well! Nice dark pour, chocolate with a tastefull amount of smokeiness. Tastes great, another winner from CCB!!

On draft at Cigar City. Another awesome lager from CCB! Pours a dark cola brown with an off-white head. Nose is some roasted malts, some earth, some slight smoke, some dry chocolate and cocoa. Flavor is similar with hints of chocolate, earth, bits of smoke, and roasted malts. Clean in the finish with just a hint of lingering smoke. Light to medium in body and overall an enjoyable lager.

Pours jet black with thick tan head. Nose is big roast, clean grains, hint of smoke. Flavor is crisp and clean, perfect amount of roasted grain, nice and dry with with the perfect amount of sweetness. Excellent beer.
