COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chocolate, Espresso and Black malts give it a distinctly smooth chocolate body with a light espresso after taste without that heavy ale feel. Black Lagers are hard to find so we created one to end that search.

bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 1, 2013
Bottle from Hi-Time. Pours dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Mild chocolate aroma. Med body, almost. Flavor is chocolate, but a bit ashy. It’s nearly dry, but not very bitter - except for a little burnt malt aspect. Maybe a hint of coffee. Blind tasting I’d think it was a slightly unusual porter. Drinkable, if a little thin for the flavors.

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Not quite black in color, more of a cola look to it. A short lived khaki head. A little bit of a licorice aroma to it, not all that roasty. Maybe a hint of coffee, but not very good coffee. Kind of a grainy sweetness to it, too. The coffee flavor is there, but the roastiness is bitter and not all that pleasant. Kind of watery with a mild sweetness. Possibly the weakest of the three Evans beers.
