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.

12oz stout bottle from Chip’s. Dark brown in color with a small khaki head. Chocolate and molasses on the aroma. The flavor is smooth and balanced, tasty with caramel and chocolate, not too hoppy. Medium-bodied and smooth with medium-low carbonation. Nice solid beer overall.

chinchill (4207) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2016
11 oz bottle in Oregon. Mild flavor and aroma but strong enough to leave a light lingering flavor of dark roasted grains and light bitter hops. Solid but not extraordinary flavor. Exceptional soft and smooth but lively mouthfeel.

Session signature short bottle, skipped the pour. Thanks to Eugene for the bottle/reminder that I never rated this back in my Session kick days. Creamy chocolate malt. Almost like a sweet cream, milk chocolate porter. Interesting, unique lager. Dark, but cool finish. Pretty good stuff.

Bottle from Trader Joes that I took camping. Roasty black flavors were nicer than most lagers. This was not too bad really.

This is a good dark malty lager. Smooth drinking plenty of flavor would recommend.

12 oz bottle One of the twelve beers of Christmas The beer poured a clear dark brown to black. The beige head dissipated quickly. The aroma of roasted caramel malts and chocolate. The beer has a light body and soft carbonation. The taste of roasted malts dominate and there are hints of chocolate. The finish is clean with hints of some bitterness.

Stubby bottle into stout glass. Dark ruby beer that is not as black as I was expecting. Decent head that sticks around a bit. Not much aroma - mild malt and that is about it. Smooth almost creamy mouthfeel - light but not at all watery. Hints of milk chocolate, vanilla and smooth malt. No real bitterness. Very good easy drinker. Would be interesting to try this one on nitro! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent beer but clearly the goal was solely sessionable. Pours dark brown w/ a tan head that leaves little lacing. The aroma has subtle caramel notes. The taste is primarily caramel throughout. Not much complexity & a bit thin on the palate but overall ok. I probably wouldn’t seek this out again!

Bottle. Delicate coffee and lager aroma with faint noble hops accents. Clear brown with a quickly dissipating off-white sheet on top. Nutty coffee and faint chocolate flavour. Low bitterness, slightly dry finish. Medium light body, moderate carbonation, almost crisp but for the smooth chocolate.

Old rating. Dark brown. Roasty, bready, minimal chocolate. A little thin in the mouthfeel. Decent.
