COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Session Black is short, dark and totally drinkable. The initial tastes are a subtle pairing of caramel and chocolate malt flavors with precise hopping to provide an elegant citrus background to the delicate finish of dark cocoa.

DocJitsu (721) - Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a clear copper amber color with no head. Sweet roasted malt nose. Full bodied lager with a wet turning seamlessly mildly scrubby mouthfeel. Mild flavors of caramel Christmas pull candy, fruit and cream.

BelgianBeerGal (3016) - Dayton Area, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Surprise AZ TJ’s bottle. Fairly typical aroma of darker, sweet malt with a little bitter chocolate. Pleasant flavor, a little milk chocolate with a hint of sugar. Nice dark lager for a session beer.

VinegarStroke (208) - Napa, California, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle: clear, dark brown with a hint of copper. Poor head. Dominated by grain. Chocolate. Hint of malt or molasses and syrup. Very simple and clean. Off dry. Not sour or bitter. Medium weight and medium to long. Chocolate and malty flavors. Very simple and defined profile. Lacks complexity and layers. Just full of primary grain flavors.

Squizzle (133) - Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2013
The first time I saw this I was stoked because I like the lager. This beer does not disappoint. Darker than its twin and totally good for the price.

4/23/2010. From bottle. Nice dark brown color with a tan head. Roasted malt aromas with caramel. Somewhat thin mouthfeel, but with good malty flavors.

Nik925 (742) - California, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Well, it is sessionable, has interesting flavors for a lager, and well, it has drinkability. A bit of nice malt comes through. Other than that, this isn’t something to savor. Best had at the end of the evening when you won’t remember anyway.

Smooth easy to drink black lager, much better than most out there. Dark amber with little head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trujahwarrior (478) - Monroe, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2013
11.5 oz bottle pours a clear dark brown color with a medium off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate and nuts. Tastes of the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with good carbonation. Pretty tasty black lager for the price and you can drink a lot without getting to wasted. Will be drinking this again for sure.

sweet, tasty beer in a cool bottle. I like this brewery and will probably get this one again.
