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.

trujahwarrior (509) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Deep black pour with a thick tan head. The nose is lovely - softly earthy and cocoaish with a very light sweetness and a medium palate. A bit of light sweetness and a touch of light citrusy hops on the back. A really well-balanced beer.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
11oz bottle. Poured a deep dark ruby-brown color with a thin light tan ring head. Aromas of sweet nut and hints of smoke, with a grainy backbone and charcoal notes. Flavors of smoke and rich, robust toffee and nut. Very balanced, but light. Thin, smooth body with a crisp, clean finish.
