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.

hayduke (3767) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 25, 2009
From a 12 oz stubby bottle this poured a medium brown with a light tan head and light lacing. Nose comes on with light roasted malts and some chocolate, and a hint of coffee and ripe fruit. Fairly light mouthfeel. Flavor is mostly of caramel malts with a light bitterness in the dry finish.

Very nice rendition. Malt is at that perfect burntness that it should be at for a schwarz.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a tan head over a cola brown body. Aroma of roast, hay, caramel and nougat. Taste is hoppy and light with roast, nuts, a bit of leather, caramel and licorice. A bit salty in the finish. Light bodied, tingly carbonation and pleasant. Another very acceptable Full Sail Lager.

djd07 (6058) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a small frothy light tan head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a sweet roasted malt with raisin and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a roasted malt taste with coffee and chocolate. Easy to drink a good schwarzbier from full sail.

Cool little bottle from Lukas Liquor. Pours clear brown with small light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. Flavor is roasted malt, caramel, chocolate and some nuts. Very easy drinker which makes for a great session beer. Body is a little thin but still a good beer.

Chef Chad (104) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Well it was a session beer. Smells of some earth and grassy and some malt and that lager smell. Pours a watery black with some head. Too watery and carbonation was a bit off. Flavor was mild sweetness with light roast tones. It was quite quaffable and drinkable. I like it just hated the body
