COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, Bold, and Black. This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

Bottle from SJ. I’m starting to like this company. Nice roasted / chocolate malts, some smoke, brown sugar and vanilla. It really is well balanced with a medium body. Excellent representation of the style.

Draft at Moriartys. Top of a keg. Black pour (actually a very dark clear brown under bright light.) Thick tan head. Rings of lace. Silky body. Dark cocoa. Mocha. The high ABV is well hidden. Smooth - but maybe too much so. It needs more of an edge.

Aroma is of coffee and chocolate. Body is pitch black with a thin tan head. Taste is heavy dry chocolate with coffee mixed in. Hint of caramel sweetness in the background though you have to pay attention to notice. Medium bitterness. Warms the palate with it’s heavy 10% ABV otherwise it’s power is not noticeable. Thick and slick feeling so best enjoyed slowly. Enjoyable and well balanced. I’d be happy to have many more of these.
