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.

Dark clear pour with little head. Sweet malt aroma. Very sweet milk chocolate flavor with a touch of spiciness. Too sweet though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"pretty much what i expected from this one. a session ale as advertised, nothing more, nothing less. there’s obvious quality to this brew, but it’s nothing to go out of your way for. a little dry, well balanced chocolate malt and hops."

Brown coca cola appearance. Aroma of light roasted malt and burned bread with yeast and light fruitiness. Flavor of burned bread and some malt sweetness. Medium light body. Burned aftertaste. Not bad. Good value.

Roser (34) - Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Appearance- fairly dark, semi clear, mahogany, cola brown. Thin mocha colored head that didn’t last long. Little to no lacing. Smell- clean. Malt and spices. Dark and toasty. Light chocolate notes. Taste- bready, caramel, cocoa. Mouthfeel- smooth and creamy. Crisp. Light bodied. Overall- very good/nice. An above average schwarzbier. Would recommend and have again. Cheers!

JMCtime (14) - Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Decent dark beer for a reasonable price. Nothing too special about but good for when you don’t want to put down a lot more money on a specialty or microbrew.

Drought. Reddish brown with small beige creamy head, light caramel aroma, roasted malt taste, thin body, low carbonation, medium finish with caramel aftertaste. Light but easy to drink.

maekchu (2196) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2014
Tap at Full Sail in Hood River, as Full Sail Session Black Premium Dark Lager. Small sweetish roasty nose. Medium translucent brown (not so dark). Toasty malt, licorice, candy, chocolate, light caramel, and root beer. Thin-medium body. Maybe a bit too sweet, and too sessionable?
