COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Resignation Recipe Brewed In Collaboration with Redhook. A toast lager with notes of chocolate and coffee. Unlike a heavy porter or a stout it’s amazingly light, crispy, and sessionable. KCCO Black is a delicious misfit.

Dark brown colored pour. Big light khaki head. Plenty of lacing. Big malty and roasted grain nose. Some chocolate notes. Fruity and malty flavor. Finish is sweet yet dry.

bubbleflubber (1816) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours the deepest mahogany into the glass, with an eggshell soapy head that leaves foamy lacing. The nose is of grains and silage. Flavors of light coffee essence, nice chocolate hues and grains finish with a lightly toasted element. Very sessionable, it’s a sweeter Schwarz, but goes down extremely easy. The body is light and the palate malty, round and substantive. Very decent, in my humble opinion.

askewbrew (8) - Edmond, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 17, 2014 does not count
Pours out to a generous beige head that laces well and very deep brownish black color. Aroma is slightly nutty, coffee-like malt with a good dose of Munich and pilsner malts, much like a Dunkel. Flavor is a blend of sharp roasted grains, sweet decocted malts and a touch of noble hops. Mouthfeel is medium-light and refreshing. Overall a good call.

mcclainc50 (171) - New York, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a dark amber color with an of white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel. Thin mouthfeel notes of caramel and chocolate, with a malty aftertaste. Not bad for a "novelty" beer.

slowrunner77 (444) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 15, 2014
"Light toffee, roasted coffee, and even lighter chocolate on the nose and flavor. Mildly bitter, perhaps a touch to sweet and not quite as dry as I like in the style. Not bad, but nuthin special either."

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown - almost black color with red-orange highlights and a medium sized fluffy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was cola, a bit of cherry, wood and smoke. The flavor was cola, wood, a hint of roasty malts and a faint cherry undertone. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Sweet flavour of dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and a hint of smoke with a mildly dry, bitter finish. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation.
